New England Patriots expected to adjust contract for Tom Brady

In 2017, Washington was bit pretty hard by the injury bug.

Now, the Skins will move forward with Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley, as well as pass-catching threat Chris Thompson, who is still recovering from a fractured fibula he suffered on November 19. His season is officially over before it really got started.

The rest of the running back depth chart leaves much to be desired.

Brady dressed but didn't play in Thursday night's 26-17 win over the Washington Redskins, and there's no guarantee he would have taken the field even if he was fully healthy, considering he sat out three of the previous four preseason openers.

Perine had been mentioned as a possible cut earlier this summer, and while that's unlikely to happen now, it should give us an idea as to what the coaching staff thinks of him.

Instead, Guice's National Football League career starts with a medical redshirt. He averaged an impressive 2.84 yards after contact per attempt and forced 35 missed tackles across 168 carries, ranking T-10th and 13th, respectively, among running backs with 100-plus carries that season.

Like many 41-year-olds, Tom Brady is dealing with a sore back. Basically they'll have a running downs back and a passing downs back.

Brady's current contract runs through the 2019 season, and Schefter's report did not indicate that current talks would include an extension.
