Redskins trade Dennis Morris to St. Louis; Malcolm Kelly has setback
Updated at 3:53 p.m.
The Redskins have traded rookie tight end Dennis Morris to the St. Louis Rams, Jason Reid has confirmed, for a conditional draft pick. In a second move, the team obtained linebacker/defensive end Hall Davis from the Rams for a conditional draft pick.
Malcolm Kelly, whose hamstring has caused him to have a severely limited training camp and preseason, was hurt in practice today.
Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said trainers told him Kelly suffered "a pretty good pull." (Redskins Insider has the details.)
With Chris Cooley healthy again and Fred Davis, the Redskins had some depth at the tight end position. Morris was a sixth-round draft pick as a fullback out of Louisiana Tech. He was taken 174th overall and, according to Shanahan, "he wasn't going to make our team."
