Malcolm Kelly Expected Practice Monday, Play On Thursday

Finally, some good news for Malcolm Kelly.

Kelly, who hasn't practiced with the team since the first day of training camp, due to a lingering hamstring injury he suffered while training with Donovan McNabb, will finally be working out with his teammates tomorrow. Rich Campbell tweeted the news:

Malcolm Kelly participated in this morning's walkthrough and is expected return to full practice tomorrow.

Kelly will only have one week and one pre-season game to prove himself to the Redskins' coaching staff before they have to make final cuts on Saturday. He is currently listed as a wide receiver on the Redskins' third team, along with Devin Thomas, who like Kelly, was drafted in the second round of the 2008 draft.

Though his time to make an impression is limited, Kelly is confident he can do enough to earn a roster spot in Thursday's game, according to Barry Svrluga:

"I feel it can be a big night. If I'm 100 percent go, it should be a good night. We'll just see. [Monday] will be the true test. It's cool to run one or two times, but then when it starts fatiguing, and then you still have to go run, then it's the true test to see where it's at."
