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."

Not a good sign for Malcolm Kelly's roster chances. I think they should place him on injured reserve just to keep other teams off of him. Let him sit for 12 months and give him one more chance next summer.

So long Malcolm, we hardly knew ya.

Nothing personal against Kelly but what is the strange hold he has over this franchise? This is a love affair like no other I've seen with this team.
