Malcolm Kelly in precarious position with Redskins

Could Malcolm Kelly be at the end of the line with the Washington Redskins?

That certainly is the way Jason Reid of the Washington Post is reading the situation. As Reid details, after Kelly’s latest episode with the pulled hamstring the Redskins have three options: keep him on the 53-man roster with the hope that at some point he’ll be healded up and ready to go, placed him on injured reserve and try again next season or waive him with the intention of reaching an injury settlement.

Kelly, a former second-round draft pick with terrific hands, can’t keep his lower body straight long enough to stay on the field and actually get evaluated by coach Mike Shanahan and his staff.

Kelly had been held out since the start of training camp with a “severe left hamstring injury” and re-injured himself on Monday, a development that likely puts him weeks away from even being able to plot a return to the field.

The Redskins are saying that Kelly will be sidelined indefinitely and that puts him in real jeopardy of losing a job. Keep in mind that Shanahan and general manager Bruce Allen had nothing to do with the draft pick. If healthy, he could turn into a productive player. In the big picture, the Redskins are desperate for help at the position but if a guy can’t help them this season, well, Kelly might not be long for the burgundy and gold.
