Tom Brady dealing with sore back

On a penalized play that got wiped off the stat sheets in a meaningless preseason game, rookie Derrius Guice looked like everything the Redskins needed at running back.

Guice carried the ball six times for 19 yards on 10 snaps and limped off the field on his final touch.

Brady can earn up to $20 million this season, once the incentives are finalized.

The news is also a significant blow to Guice - and the latest knee injury to slow down his football career. They're not expecting him to come here and have a 500-yard season.

Contrast that with Rob Gronkowski's restructured deal from past year, which allowed the tight end to earn an extra $5.5 million by reaching certain totals in one of three statistical categories or by securing first-team All-Pro honors. Gruden has said there's competition for the No. 1 job along with Thompson, who's coming back from a broken fibula.

With the 2018 season rapidly approaching, and with Tom Brady entering his age 41 season, the quarterback and the team are close to settling some changes to his contract. Kelley, a 2016 undrafted free agent who began last season as the starter, has gone from "Fat Rob" to "Fit Rob" and should now be considered the front-runner. "So, control what you can control".

A star rookie running back reportedly suffered a knee injury during the first half of a preseason game on Thursday night.
