Malcolm Kelly can't be written off Redskins' roster at this point

It's too early to write off wide receiver Malcolm Kelly, Redskins sources tell The Post's Jason Reid, who writes about the wide receivers at Redskins Insider.

He has to get onto the field, after fighting a hamstring injury since training camp opened July 29, in order to show Mike and Kyle Shanahan something, Reid tweets, but the door is not closed simply because of his size (6-4) and hands, which one source told Reid are the best on the team.

There'd been plenty of speculation after the Redskins' 42-17 preseason win over the Buffalo Bills that Kelly would be the odd man out in the intense wide receiver competition when cuts were made. But if he's healthy, Reid concludes, the Redskins' best 53 players will include Kelly. The question is whether he can get there.

Can't see how he'll make the team. Especially under Shanahan, not practicing, not being healthy coming into camp. Plus, it's not like he's done much of anything even when he can get on the field.

Well, you can't coach height. But if Kelly doesn't get out there soon, his chances diminish. I don't think Shanahan wants to let him go, but I don't think he averse to letting him go, if that makes any sense.

With MK, he may benefit from some of the young receivers because if guys like Banks, Armstrong and/or Austin could go to the practice squad. If they did, the skins could keep Kelly and give him a chance once he heals up. If he faulters, then they could release him and bring one of those other guys off the practice squad and still be in business.
