Report: Malcolm Kelly Expected To Miss Preseason Opener Friday

Malcolm Kelly's injured hamstring has been a problem all throughout training camp, and it will likely be enough a problem to keep him out of the Redskins' preseason opener. According to Jason Reid of the Washington Post, Kelly is not expected to play when the Redskins take on the Bills this Friday.

Mike Shanahan did not confirm this, saying only that Kelly will not play if he cannot practice. However, he did say that Kelly will hopefully be ready to play "next week," adding that Kelly's injury is more serious that the team expected. 

This is particularly bad news for Kelly, considering he's currently listed as a third-string receiver on the team's first official depth chart.
