Derrius Guice avoided serious injury. 

But the Redskins running back is not happy with the hit that caused it. 

MRI results showed Guice was diagnosed with a sprained MCL, according multiple reports, which will cause him to miss at least one game. On Twitter, the 22-year-old called Packers safety Darnell Savage’s hit a “cheap shot” for diving at his legs on the tackle.

Guice went down in the second quarter of Sunday’s loss when Savage lowered his body to make the play.

I think it was a cheap shot!!” Guice said, replying to a fan. “He knows the history of my knee injuries and went straight at them..”

This is the third knee injury of Guice’s short career as the second-year back suffered a torn ACL last year and a torn meniscus earlier this season. 

Guice, though, said he was “blessed” his most recent injury wasn’t as bad as it could have been.

Blessed… it could’ve been way worse!! I could’ve broke my leg
