LSU running back Derrius Guice put out an Instagram post late Monday Night to talk about his knee injury during this season and said that he does not expect to make a decision on the NFL Draft until after the Citrus Bowl on Jan. 1.

Guice injured his knee in preseason camp and re-injured the knee vs. Mississippi State on September 16 but says he is 100-percent now.

He finished the season with 1,153 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns despite missing the Troy game and had limited playing time in other games because of the injury.

Many believe the junior from Baton Rouge is expected to forgo his final year of eligibility and enter the draft, although Guice says the decision will not come until after the Bowl game. Various NFL Draft analysts predict that Guice will be selected in the first round.

Here is Guice's message on Instagram:

quote:

dhasickestt: This has been my face all year... started in camp when I injured my knee... played throughout most of the pain until some games I couldn’t. Many say they miss the old Guice, I do too. No player wants to be injured or play injured. I did the best I could this year for my team. We have grown so much this year as a football program and will only get better from her. Thanks to my coaches and teammates and loyal tiger fans for uplifting me when I was down and keeping me positive.. this season is not what I expected for myself and I know most didn’t expect it as well so sorry to disappoint! I’m finally 100% thank the lord my decision to leave or stay is still in the air and I will not know until after the bowl game so respect that! Love you all

There's absolutely zero chance that guice will be back next season at LSU. He is a first round pick for sure and you can't bama him for leaving. It was a blast watching him play in the p&g and I will enjoy keeping up with him as he furthers his career in the nfl. Best of luck to guice, he is one of my favorite tigers to ever suit up for LSU. He will represent our university, our city, and our state very well. Good luck derrius, Geaux tigers!

..."Various NFL Draft analysts predict that Guice will be selected in the first round." Did you not read the post? I agree with you he'll leave, but his size and running style is atypical for the NFL. I think early second round.

"Guice injured his knee in preseason camp", What the frick! Last year the rant told me that only a stupid egotistical hard headed coach would allow his star running back to get hurt during preseason camp. Guess Miles isn't the only one that falls into the "dumb head coach" category.

When Guice injured his knee, it was early in a scrimmage and he tried to hurdle a player. He was hit hard and you would not know he was injured. The trainers never went to the field to look at him. He did not play for rest of scrimmage. It was not that O ran him harder than Miles. It was a freak injury and it persisted longer than it should have. He wanted to play even tho he was not 100%. He is healthy now.

When you are thanking your teammates, coaches and fans, and say you will make the decision after the bowl, the decision is already made. Good luck in the NFL and thanks for all the effort as a Tiger.

Either way I like him. I wouldn't be surprised if he came back. Its just a hunch. I'm no one special predicting this. I don't think he has anything else to prove, but whatever he does I hope for nothing but the best.

He's gone!!

I'd love for him to stay, but it just isn't the smart move for him. He should be a first round pick as it stands currently. He already had an injury this year and coming back will just be another chance he injures himself before getting a paycheck. Unless his draft stock has fallen, he should go. He's been a great tiger and I'm glad to have been able to watch him suit up for us.

I'd respect that more if you didn't right "respect that" at the end.

Maybe if you didn’t write “right”, we would respect you more

LOL "right"..... LOL

He probably gets a lot of junk on IG and other accts about leaving/staying, that’s probably why he asked to “respect that”

If we get him back for one more year and we get a quaterback in thats a future star i see natty next year how good this defense will be!!!

McK and CHS alum. BR through and through. I remember being shocked the first game I saw him in as a freshman...the most violent style I've ever seen. I'm glad he has had football to help him address his demons - and always with a smile. He is a top 5 Tiger of all time. I hope he tears up the NFL and has enough money to shower on himself and his loved ones for the rest of his life. Derrius, go forward guilt free, young man. It has been a pleasure and an inspiration to watch you do what you do. I predict you will go on to do something more for the world than just thrilling them with a football in your hands. Good luck!
