Kelly Hopes to Play Sunday

Jason Reid reports:

Rookie wide receiver Malcolm Kelly completed practice this week without experiencing knee problems and said he hopes to play against the Seahawks.

"We'll just have to see," Kelly said. "I got in some formations just for me, some little plays here and there just for me, so we'll just have to see.

"Coach [Jim] Zorn talks about the plays and then he says, 'If you're activated, then we're going to do this and do this.' It is a pretty good sign, but you never know."

Initially slowed because of a hamstring injury in training camp, Kelly underwent arthroscopic surgery Aug. 4 on his left knee and missed the preseason. He has been active in only three of 10 games and has one catch for six yards.

Kelly has been unable to play in some games because his knee swelled in pregame warmups, and the medical staff has had to drain Kelly's knee several times after practices, Zorn said. In an effort to help Kelly heal completely, the medical staff recommended that he not participate in football activities for a few weeks. He returned to practice last week but was not active in a 14-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys at FedEx Field.

Drafted from Oklahoma with one of Washington's three second-round picks, Kelly (6 feet 4, 227 pounds) is the biggest wide receiver on the roster, and the receiving corps could use a boost. "I anticipate getting him involved if he's active," Zorn said. "But how much?

"He's going to be a part of the group if he's active, and then we'll see how much he can actually go. We have some veteran receivers and he hasn't been out doing a whole lot [this season], so I'm just trying to get him involved."

Kelly said he planned to be ready, just in case.

"I remember [at times] during the season, somebody would come in and say, 'Man, you're not playing this week, Coach Zorn just said you're deactivated,'" Kelly said. "Then come Sunday, I'm out there. I just have to wait and see how it really is, but I feel good and I understand the offense."

After watching Kelly make big plays on the practice field before the season, his teammates are eager to see whether he could produce similarly in games.

"What would Malcolm Kelly bring to the offense? That's a good question," tight end Chris Cooley said. "He had a great OTAs [organized team activities]. Until you start playing, it's hard to say."

Do these formations include an ice pack, and an MRI?

If Kelly is able to play...start him. They kept him on the active roster all season, while not addressing other needs. It's time to see what he can do for this offense.

Play Kelly!!!! They can deactivate Fred Davis for one game and give Kelly a chance....this is the best opportunity for him - he needs to play a game before the Giants come to town.

If Portis plays, deactivate Alexander. There's no reason to keep 4 RBs on a game-day roster. I don't care how "iffy" him and Betts are. Even in the highly unlikely situation that both are activated and both get hurt to the point that they can't go for the rest of the game, you STILL have Rock Cartwright and Mike Sellers that can be used at the RB position.

Deactivating Shaun Alexander seems like a no brainer. I'm worried about finding out whether the coaching staff are the Tin Men from the Wizard of Oz.

Because Fred Davis plays special teams*, if Alexander is active, I will scream obscenities till my throat is sore ... unless he has a 2005-like game ... in which case, I will act like signing him was my idea.

* In this, the early stages of the Skins post-Torrence era.

Posted by: cej75024 | November 21, 2008 1:12 PM | Report abuse

Theres no way he starts this game. He's been held out due to injuries and not knowing the playbook. If hes healthy he gets in there in certain situations, if he is healthy and knew the playbook, he might draw a start after playing in consecutive weeks and producing in the passing game. And Thomas looks to be making progress, he caught a few last week and they went to him more often, which means Campbell is gaining trust in him as well as Zorn for calling plays to him. Its about what I would expect from 2 rookies so far, but with ARE being your number 2 guy and thrash seeing action... Skins need these guys to contribute! It would be awesome to have Kelly, Thomas and Moss be your top 3 and have ARE a 4th slot guy who focuses more on Punt returns! ARE is not a 2 and maybe not even a 3rd starting WR on an NFL team!

Agree here as well. Alexander was brought in when they found out Betts was going to be out 4-6 weeks. Well guess who's back on the active roster guys?........I could see keeping him on the roster til gametime this week to make sure Betts and Portis are actually good to go, but on Monday, if Portis/Betts are not any worse off (health - wise) than they are today, it's time to cut Alexander, or at least de-activate him evry week from here on out.....

He caught one pass last week, couldn't make a play on another one on 3rd down.

Doesn't balance out the "12-men-in-the-huddle" penalty he drew AND the "illegal formation" penalty he caused when he didn't get up to the line of scrimmage to cover Jansen.

I agree at some point the Skins are just gona have to stop being so cautious with these rookie WR's and just let them go out and play alot possibly start. Especially with the passing game sucking so bad for the last 4 games or so. But thats not gona happen if I know Z... yet.

dlhaze1,

IMO, last week was the ultimate vote of "no-confidence" in Alexander. When you have 2 starting RBs limping around on one leg, you go to the savvy veteran that you signed to cover you in a situation like that. He gave us 1 carry for 0 yards. The staff clearly doesn't have faith in him; can't figure out why he's around.

psps23 -- I agree with your thoughts SA, he has little to offer, I think that was made painfully clear last week when there was a need for somebody to pick up the slack and SA wasn't given the chance.

On the other thread, you listed a bunch of players that JLC has praised, but what you don't see is that JLC has NEVER given credit for those players being on the roster. Did they just show up and start playing? Or, maybe, just mabye, somebody in the FO actually made a good decision to sign or draft them?

That's been my biggest point all along with JLC, he has no problem "criticizing" the FO, but rarely gives them credit. As if ANY success is pure luck. But, the failures are ALWAYS a result of them being no good. It doesn't go both ways.

I expect them to make mistakes being rooks. And that 3rd down pass was low enough that none of their WR's would have caught it even the smurf WR's. I never saw who didnt cover Jansen cuz the broadcast was too busy focusing on madden/michaels. And i think that was a delay of game, not 12 in the huddle penalty. Anyone know the actual stats? 1 catch? 1 drop? was that a 3rd or 4th down low pass that he didnt come up with?

IR stands for "injured reserve." You can't IR a healthy guy who's practicing with the team, like Kelly.

If you did IR him, what would you do then? Sign another WR who would be inactive because CP is hurt and we need the slot for Sean Alexander? What would be the net gain?

Only your expectations have been exceeded. No one with a bit of sense would say that this year's draft class has contributed other than Horton. I think that the bar you have set for Cerrato is stupendously low. Given that there are currently holes in the starting lineup at second and third wide receiver, outside linebacker, and offensive line I think that rookies have had every opportunity to step up and contribute, if they were indeed worthy. Only an apologist for Cerrato would attack Jasno's summary of our personnel so viciously, while denying what surely your own eyes have witnessed through the first ten weeks of this season.

Posted by: chrislarry | November 21, 2008 1:31 PM | Report abuse

Am I the only one that sees Zorn actively trying to get the rookies involved all season long? It's pretty obvious that he designs plays specifically to go to these guys (the reverse to Davis, several screens to Thomas, quick slants to Thomas/Kelly, the one shot down the field to Davis, etc.), but it just so happens that the plays haven't worked (and subsequently, the rooks haven't produced for him).

I don't think it's an issue of Zorn being reluctant to trust these guys (as in "reluctant to a fault"). I think that if these guys gave him reason to be trusted, then he would have them out there in a heartbeat. It's not a case of Gibbs saying "oh I think we're better off with Brunell instead of Ramsey/Campbell", because I sincerely believe that Zorn WANTS these guys out there (as opposed to Gibbs who wanted Brunell, and was essentially forced to make the switch to the young guys). That's just the impression I get.

So based on this, what has Thomas done NOT to be trusted?? We've already determined that the penalties versus dallas were not on him, the 3rd down throw to him was a bad throw by Campbell, as Zorn alluded to, and he had gone weeks without a PI penalty on him.

Zorn needs to run more plays his way, and see what he can do.

That is a very scary quote from Zorn. He is undoubtly referring to James Trash. TALENT WINS GAMES, not "veteran presence". Thrash sucks, he scares NO opposing defenses and he brings NOTHING to the table. I sure hope Zorn is just "saying that". We'll have to wait and see. Alexander needs to be deactivated, but if worst comes to worst, deactivate James Thrash. Yeah, I'm being dead serious.

TE,

Teams come up with all sorts of "injuries" to justify IR'ing a player (usually some kind of mystery "strain").

My point is, if they don't feel comfortable with him playing in what is the biggest game of the season thus far, given the obvious lack of offense, I don't think they ever will.

They don't need the slot for Shaun Alexander. I'm a little baffled over this. I'm not for Rock getting a bulk of carries, but if Betts is playing, he can be the backup back. I understood picking Alexander up, but he hasn't shown much (granted with few carries), and giving up a spot on the roster we could use for a WR doesn't add up, at least for me.

Running the ball isn't our problem, as I'm sure you know.

driley -- and your the epitome of the JLC defenders. You failed to include enough of my post to be truly capable of attacking it with any validity. The rookies weren't counted on, period. All starters were returning, and there was no reason to think that the rookies were expected to come in and beat any of them out of a job.

And the team has exceeded MOST expectations (not mine, but the consensus from here and all over the league) already. If they take another small step forward they will have "blown away" expectations. And why would the rookies having the offseason to learn and improve be an issue for you? Oh, wait, that's right, if they have good careers after their rookie years, you won't be able to join JLC in the FO bashing. Yeah, I get it.

Rookies are what they are, draft them ok, but dont count on them. We needed to have gotten some solid young vets (2-5 years exp) in the offseason to fill out slots 2-4. Then the rookies development is gravy and patience would have been fine. Asit stands now we are forced to need production fro them probably a bit to quick.

psp -- From what I've been hearing from Zorn, he hasn't given the rookies much opportunity. In his press conference recently, he said he didn't trust Davis because he didn't run some plays correctly. Then he clarified and said, "even if it's only ONE play, I can't trust him, that just can't happen". Thing to me is this: does anybody think that every single veteran run every single play exactly as they were supposed to? Zorn has also criticized "all of the wide receivers" for not running their routes well, using the depth, and various other issues. But he hasn't benched Moss, or ARE, or Thrash.

I just think he's been trying to be too careful, I'm not knocking how he has done thing up to this point, but I do think he needs to put pressure on the young guys and see if they respond, ON THE FIELD.

"So based on this, what has Thomas done NOT to be trusted??"

C'mon Greg, you've got to earn trust. Going a couple weeks without messing up mentally is not enough. At this point, all Thomas has done is moved into the category of "mediocre" for a WR, not taking into consideration the experience factor(as in he's better than Thrash, but still nowhere near Randle El). He'll get more balls thrown his way when he makes plays with the opportunities he gets now. It's not like he's been sheltered on the bench -- he's been out there on the field the last couple weeks getting a good amount of snaps.

As for Kelly, HE'S the one I want to see with more balls thrown his way. From the comments of Zorn/Portis/other veterans, he seems like he's earned the respect of the team in being able to make plays. Unlike Thomas, Kelly hasn't had the opportunity to show what he can do.

The problem is Thrash, he comes i and screws everything up because defenses pay absolutely no attention to him at all. But he is a vteran who knows the plays? If that is the case, why not make him the WR's coach.

To me, if Eddie Royal and Deshean Jackson can contribute to and help their respective teams do well offensively, then so can Thomas and Kelly.

When Kelly does get in he'll push Thomas more than anyone else. Do you think that Thomas wants Kelly to come in and kick ass if he isn't doing so? Hell no!! If it goes down that way, Thomas will assuredly work harder and smarter and have another rookie there to keep his A.D.D.-self focused.

All I know, is we all better hope that Z gets back to leaning on the run, lead or not, and just forces these damn rookies to play professional football. They have the physical tools and we absolutely need them to play to their capabilities. Rookie is simply an excuse. You learn the play, you line up properly based upon that play, you block for a run or run a pattern. Not rocket science. Also, there are many other nuances I didn't mention, I know, but these dudes have been playing ball long enough that it shouldn't be like pulling teeth to get production from them. Damn!!, just play harder that you've ever played and concentrate harder than you ever have and you'll make catches and nice blocks and help your team win!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let's go Thomas and Kelly!! Carpe Diem!! Sieze the moment!!!! Hail to the Redskins!!!!!!
