Malcolm Kelly will have to miss some time in training camp due to a hamstring injury suffered during Donovan McNabb’s “hell week” practice sessions. The injury is likely to hold Kelly out of camp for a few days, but it isn’t considered serious.
From Redskins Insider:
Kelly experienced tightness in his hamstring during one of the workouts, the sources said. He immediately contacted the Redskins’ medical/training staff for guidance. The Redskins plan to proceed cautiously with Kelly, who worked hard to overcome knee problems and microfracture surgery after his rookie season. Coach Mike Shanahan is expected to address Kelly’s situation after the first practice Thursday.
Kelly is considered on the hot seat to produce this year as he dealt with knee injuries in his first year with the Redskins and disappointed with his play last season. Some have even speculated that he might not even make the final roster. Kelly will now have to overcome this new hurdle in his bid to hold on to his job.
