Brown returns to practice; Kelly still on sidelines

In Sunday's first practice for the Redskins since Friday night's victory over Buffalo, right tackle Jammal Brown returned from his hip injury, but receiver Malcolm Kelly still isn't fully back from the hamstring problem that has caused him to miss almost the entire training camp.

Brown, who was replaced with the first unit by Stephon Heyer, did some work in 11-on-11 drills Sunday.

"Felt a lot better," Coach Mike Shanahan said. "Should be full-go tomorrow, should be no setbacks. Hopefully he can make it through the practice and keep it going."

Kelly, though, is another matter. The third-year wideout was again relegated to working on the sidelines on agility drills and running straight-ahead sprints in the end zone as the other receivers caught balls and participated in team drills.

"Malcolm's better," Shanahan said. "I don't anticipate him practicing tomorrow, but hopefully by Tuesday or Wednesday he'll be able to go."

And for Saturday's preseason game against Baltimore?

"We'll see practice first before we go and talk about the games," Shanahan said.

On Friday night, after defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth played with the second unit, Shanahan said he needed to look at the film before commenting on how Haynewsorth had performed in his limited stint. Asked to evaluate him Sunday, Shanahan didn't go into much detail.

"What I usually do is look at how hard people play," Shanahan said, "and Albert played eight plays, and those eight plays, he gave everything he had. So I was pleased."

Shanahan also said the team brought in long snapper James Dearth to create competition with Nick Sundberg, who has been with Washington throughout the offseason but has struggled on some snaps in practices.

"We brought a couple guys in, and kept the best one," Shanahan said. "A lot of evaluation from our pro scouting department, and thought he would be the best person."

imo, if kelly doesn't practice this week, his time in dc is probably numbered. there's a new sheriff in town and i don't think he takes people who can't play along for the would think kelly would be in good shape after all he's been through, but, i guess not. hopefully 92 figures this out too.

I really like Malcolm Kelly as a receiver but I don't see him making the final 53 man roster. I think he has the most potential but he's missed too much training camp time. I'm just frustrated with his injuries. Bartel's had a hamstring injury and he's been out for only 3 to 4 days and he's back at practice. Maybe Malcolm's injury is more serious. It's just very frustrating.

MK12 is done, stick the fork in. no way in H he makes this team, not with DT11 barely in 3rd spot and other guys actually playing rather than looking on from the injury chart.

12 just isn't made for the NFL, he's not even close to durable.
