Derrius Guice drafted by Redskins after week of combine-related controversy

LSU running back Derrius Guice, initially projected as a first-round selection, was chosen by the Washington Redskins with the 59th pick of the NFL draft on Friday.

Guice rushed for 2,638 yards and 26 touchdowns over the past two seasons for LSU. He was the seventh running back taken in this draft.

He made news in March during an interview on SiriusXM Satellite Radio when he said one NFL team at the scouting combine asked if he is gay and another club asked if his mother “sells herself.”

“It was one of those games where we got down early and it just … it was 5-1, but it seemed like more and they spread it out,” Indians manager Terry Francona said. “It’s kind of a miserable night and it’s more miserable when you’re losing.”

The teams complete the two-game series Wednesday night. The Cubs have won four of five and are two games over .500 (11-9) for the first time this season.

The rain intensified throughout the game, leaving puddles in the infield and causing Cubs reliever Steve Cishek to slip on the mound several times. The inclement weather led to a crowd of 16,408.

He relayed his side of the story during the office hearing and was given suggestions for how to better handle the situation, Mateljan said.

Davis is back in Green Bay and has been a full participant in the Packers’ offseason program, which began April 17.

The fifth-round draft pick from Cal in 2016 served as the Packers’ primary kick returner and punt returner last season. He ranked third in the NFL in punt return average (12.0) last season with a long return of 65 yards against the Cleveland Browns on Dec. 10 that set up the game-tying touchdown to force overtime.

“Obviously, he sees the ball well here,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. “His debut was here, so that was adrenalin. The World Series was adrenalin. Now he’s starting to hit the ball really well, so he showed up in Cleveland at the right time.”dolphins_041
