RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Washington Redskins rookie running back Derrius Guice is out for the season after tearing the ACL in his left knee.

The LSU product was considered a first-round prospect and went late in the second.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Charl Schwartzel has matched the low round at a PGA Championship with a 7-under 63, about half an hour after U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka (KEHP’-kah) did likewise. There hadn’t been two 63s on the same day in a major championship since the 1980 U.S. Open, when Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf shot rounds of 7 under at Baltusrol.
CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs have signed veteran left-hander Jorge De La Rosa and transferred righty Yu Darvish to the 60-day disabled list to make room for him on the 40-man roster.

Darvish has been sidelined since May 20 because of triceps and elbow injuries.
