Football Team's Bryce Love: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love was placed on injured reserve Friday with a knee injury, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

The 23-year-old has been experiencing swelling in his knee over the past few days, so Washington will shut him down for a bit to allow a full recovery. Love must spend the next three weeks on the shelf before being eligible to rejoin the active roster. He was a healthy scratch for the first three games of the year, so the offense is unlikely to be impacted by his absence.

Football Team's Bryce Love: Another healthy scratch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Week 3 against Cleveland.

This is becoming the new norm for Love, who made the final roster but has yet to see the field through three weeks of action. Washington will again proceed with Antonio Gibson, J.D. McKissic and Peyton Barber as the lead backs this week against the Browns.

Football Team's Bryce Love: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Eagles.

With Adrian Peterson out of the picture, Washington's backfield was unsettled with Love competing with rookie Antonio Gibson and veterans J.D. McKissic and Peyton Barber. Love's placement on the Week 1 inactive list makes him the odd man out to start the campaign and pushes back his NFL debut. He has yet to suit up as a pro since he was selected in the fourth round of the 2019 draft, the result of a torn ACL near the end of the 2018 season at Stanford.

Football Team's Bryce Love: In Washington's backfield mix
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Adrian Peterson no longer in the mix, Sam Fortier and Nicki Jhabvala of the Washington Post project that Love will be one of four running backs Washington carries heading into Week 1.

The others are rookie Antonio Gibson, pass-catching back J.D. McKissic and the bruising Peyton Barber, though it's possible the team could add another option via trade or through the waiver process. Love, a 2019 fourth-rounder, is working his way back from a knee injury that he suffered in college at Stanford, but when healthy, the 5-foot-9, 205-pounder could, in time, emerge as an option for every-down work for Washington. With that in mind, ESPN's John Keim relays that Love "has been practicing all summer and one source said this week" the team feels that "in a couple of months, he can perhaps get back to where he was in college." That projection bodes well for Love's chances of factoring in at some point this season, though early on, we'd expect the team utilize a committee approach, with Love's role to be determined.

Football Team's Bryce Love: Not a roster lock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love has mostly been working with the second- and third-string units in practice, and his place on the roster could depend on Washington's decision between keeping three or four running backs, according to Ben Standig of The Athletic.

Adrian Peterson and Antonio Gibson are roster locks, and J.D. McKissic also appears to be in good position, sporting a $1 million contract guarantee and a unique skill set for third downs. It does seem Love would be a better choice than Peyton Barber for the fourth spot, but there's no guarantee that job even exists, as many teams carry only three RBs. It helps that Love is a recent fourth-round pick (2019), and we did see reports last week that he was getting some run with the first-team offense while Peterson had a day off. For fantasy purposes, Peterson is the safest best to get carries early in the season, while Gibson is the one with long-term upside. Love probably needs one of those two to be injured before he can get significant work.

Football Team's Bryce Love: Repping with starters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love (knee) took first-team snaps during practice Wednesday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Adrian Peterson received a veteran's day off from practice, leaving Love, J.D. McKissic, Peyton Barber and Antonio Gibson on hand for backfield reps. Love looked to have worse than a 50-50 shot to make Washington's regular-season roster as recently as a few weeks ago, but with Derrius Guice no longer on the team, a strong start to training camp has the 2019 fourth-round pick right in the mix for a Week 1 role. Love spent his entire rookie campaign on injured reserve, after suffering a torn ACL toward the end of his final season at Stanford.

Football Team's Bryce Love: Hoping to earn role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love (knee) could be a factor in the Washington backfield after Derrius Guice was released, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Washington still has five running backs in the mix for roster spots, and it's rare for an NFL team to carry more than four into Week 1. Love is a 2019 fourth-round pick coming back from a ACL tear that led to a redshirt rookie season, but he reportedly is making a strong impression in the early days of team activities. He'll try to make his mark in a backfield that also has Adrian Peterson, Antonio Gibson, J.D. McKissic and Peyton Barber.

Football Team's Bryce Love: Cleared for practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love (knee) passed a physical and should be ready for the start of training camp, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

The 2019 fourth-round pick spent his rookie season on injured reserve while recovering from an ACL tear he suffered in Dec. 2018 at Stanford. The injury required a follow-up surgery in October, but Love was able to resume training this past winter/spring, giving him plenty of time to ramp up before camp. He now finds himself battling for a roster spot in a crowded backfield, with Derrius Guice, Adrian Peterson, Antonio Gibson, J.D. McKissic and Peyton Barber also jockeying for carries and targets.

Redskins' Bryce Love: Facing tough competition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love (knee), J.D. McKissic and Derrius Guice are all candidates for passing-down snaps, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

With Love, Guice and Adrian Peterson already on the roster, it was a bit surprising to see Washington sign both McKissic and Peyton Barber during the first two weeks of free agency. There's still an opening on passing downs, but it appears Love will face tough competition for a spot on the 53-man roster, hoping to return strong after redshirting his rookie campaign. The 2019 fourth-round pick suffered an ACL tear in December 2018, then had a follow-up surgery in October to address stiffness in the same knee.

Redskins' Bryce Love: Prepping for OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love (knee) has resumed training and hopes to be ready for OTAs, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site reports.

The 2019 fourth-round pick spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve while recovering from the ACL tear he suffered in December 2018 at Stanford. He had a follow-up surgery in October to address stiffness in his right knee, hoping to return to full strength before the 2020 offseason program. Love joins a crowded backfield with Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson battling for carries, but there may be an opening on passing downs if impending free agent Chris Thompson signs with a new team, as expected.

Redskins' Bryce Love: Hoping for role in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love (knee) could have a role on passing downs in 2020, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

As expected, the fourth-round pick missed his entire rookie season while rehabbing from the ACL tear he suffered December 2018 at Stanford, with the process including a cleanup surgery in October to address stiffness in his knee. A clean bill of health before the offseason program would give Love a nice opportunity to compete for a role on offense, especially if the Redskins choose not to re-sign impending free agents Chris Thompson and Wendell Smallwood. The team does have Derrius Guice (knee) and Adrian Peterson under contract, but the former hasn't been able to stay healthy and the latter will celebrate his 35th birthday in March.

Redskins' Bryce Love: Needs another surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love is expected to undergo another cleanup surgery on his right knee Tuesday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Per Finlay, another surgery was always likely for the Stanford product, and Love currently is in Florida to see famed surgeon Dr. James Andrews. Love is working his way back from an ACL tear that he sustained in December and reportedly still is feeling stiffness in his knee. The rookie resides on the non-football injury list, and as evidenced by this news, he's considered a long shot to contribute during the 2019 season. The Redskins' backfield is currently extremely banged up, considering Derrius Guice (knee) is already on IR, Adrian Peterson suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's game and Chris Thompson is dealing with turf toe.

Redskins' Bryce Love: Starts season on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins placed Love (knee) on the reserve/non-football injury list to start the season, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Love is working his way back from an ACL tear sustained December. It remains to be seen whether the rookie fourth-round pick will contribute during the 2019 season, but he'll miss at least the first six weeks. Washington shouldn't feel any need to rush Love back into action, considering the team boasts strong depth at running back which includes Derrius Guice, Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson.

Redskins' Bryce Love: Opening season on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Jay Gruden said Monday that Love (knee) will open the season on the PUP list and that it's very possible that his 2019 campaign turns out to be a "redshirt year," John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Love, who is is currently on the Non-Football Injury list, sustained a torn ACL in December. The rookie fourth-round pick will have to sit on the PUP list (a move that will occur in advance of Week 1) for at least the first six weeks of the season, but he won't count against Washington's 53-man roster. If Love manages to return this season, he'll face a crowded running back room that includes Adrian Peterson, Derrius Guice and Chris Thompson.

Redskins' Bryce Love: Lands on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love (knee) will start training camp on the non-football injury list, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

The designation prevents Love from practicing and gives Washington the option to keep him on the team without occupying a spot on the 53-man roster for the first six weeks of the season. The team will no longer have that option if Love is removed from the PUP list later this summer. The rookie fourth-round pick suffered a torn ACL in December and now finds himself looking up at a crowded depth chart in Washington. He'll face an uphill battle to make any impact before mid-season.

Redskins' Bryce Love: Focused on rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love (knee) will focus on rehab work this spring, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site reports.

Love had surgery to repair a torn ACL in December after struggling through a disappointing senior campaign at Stanford. There was talk of the 2017 Heisman Trophy candidate going undrafted, but Washington picked him up early in the fourth round at No. 112 overall. Love won't participate in spring drills and will likely have limitations at the start of training camp in late July. With Derrius Guice (knee), Chris Thompson and Adrian Peterson on the roster, Washington doesn't have any reason to rush Love into action.

Redskins' Bryce Love: Onward to Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins selected Love (knee) in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 112th overall.

Had he come out of Stanford last year, Love likely would have been a mid-second-round pick at worst. Love was a Heisman candidate as a junior in 2017, racking up 2,118 yards and 19 touchdowns while averaging 8.1 yards per carry. His senior year was a near-disaster. He was dinged up throughout and his production fell off a cliff, as he averaged 4.5 yards per carry. Love suffered a torn ACL in December and was thus unable to test at the combine; he was also flagged at the combine medical re-check for having some stiffness in his surgically repaired knee. With that, Love may be a future asset for the Redskins more than someone in their immediate plans. But if Love can regain his 2017 explosiveness, he will be an absolute steal for this ballclub as a fourth-round pick.
