Team has few options with Malcolm Kelly

So now what with Malcolm Kelly?

Well, the Redskins have three choices: Keep him on the active roster and hope his sore hamstring improves, release him or put him on the season-ending injured reserve list.

That's it.

On Tuesday, Washington must cut five players. The 53-man roster must be set Saturday. The Redskins already have paid Kelly almost $1.95 million in salary and bonuses. An injury settlement would seem to be the most likely result after Kelly's latest mishap, which Coach Mike Shanahan described as a "setback."

Kelly is listed at 6-feet-4 and has the best hands on the team, many Redskins players say. That's why the Redskins were still waiting on Kelly while he rehabbed. If Shanahan still believes in Kelly, he could instruct General Manager Bruce Allen to assign the former Oklahoma standout to the season-ending injured-reserve list.

The Redskins cannot list Kelly as physically unable to perform because he did not begin the season on the PUP list, so it now appears Kelly is on shaky ground. Shanahan believes wide receivers must be available to practice to be effective. Kelly has been slowed because of injuries since he joined the Redskins.

Until this week, Kelly had been sidelined since the beginning of training camp because of a severe left hamstring injury, but the Redskins were strongly considering including him on the opening 53-man roster, a person familiar with the situation said repeatedly. Of course, the league source's opinion was based on Kelly eventually returning to practice and remaining physically sound to start the season.

But Kelly re-injured his hamstring Monday and is out indefinitely again with the Redskins preparing to play their preseason finale Thursday against the Arizona Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium. With Monday's news, it seems a high-profile member of the 2008 draft class may not be with the Redskins much longer.

Actually there is another option. Put him on the PUP and see if he can be ready in 6 weeks.

@LH and PSPS -

MAybe they wanted to play every one, save for DT11 because they wanted another receiver to desparately supplant his position on the 53 man roster.......And gave them every chance to.

For some reason, he 'seems' to be in the doghouse, unlike MK12...........

At the end of the day...They both make the sqaud.......

Moss
DT11
MK12
Austin
Banks

Sleepy and Coooooley will be used as 4th and 5th receivers on most occassions.

Weighing in on McNabb....he will be fine for Dallas. It is 2 weeks away. A mild sprain does not take 3 weeks to heal. This is all a media over reaction to a shifty answer Shanahan gave.

If it's a "high" ankle sprain, it can take months to heal. Or it could be Shanahan forcing Dallas to prep against Rex Grossman, too. Mike knows the Media will overplay an item dropped casually into a press conference...more than any official announcement,.

NO! Kelly is not eligible for PUP.

A player is not allowed to be placed on the PUP list if they start training camp on the active roster.

He's also not eligible for practice squad because he has an accrued season (probably two) under the definitions in the CBA.

Not seeing your analysis at all, Dude.

Kelly is either IR or injury settlement.

You completely forgot Armstrong.

Galloway makes the team because Devin is a knucklehead and you don't start a de facto rookie like Armstrong against the Cowboys.

The odds of BOTH Banks and Austen being active the first week are slim and none. I see Banks on Practice squad, where few teams would risk taking him and keeping him on their roster all year. A FA rookie who weighs a buck fifty soaking wet and fumbles?

The Bengals cut Bryant because his knee is gimpy and he can't make cuts. We have our own walking wounded receivers. Kelly is a big received that might be worth waiting on. IR if he can't go Thursday and spend the rest of the year teaching him how to stretch.

Posted by: mrlowery1 | August 30, 2010 4:45 PM | Report abuse

The Redskins have to keep him around(I hate to say).

Why?

There are very few WR's on this team to begin with. Even if it means putting him on IR. If you at least do that, you bring him back next year and if you have better WR's then you can cut him then.

I don't think the Skins many options, and I am sure cutting him is not one of them.

Agree with TheCork, send Banks to the practice squad, he's not ready to play this year. He's literally 150 lbs. Desean Jackson was said to be borderline too small for the NFL, and he weights 25 lbs more than Banks.

I doubt another team would be willing to put a 150 lb guy on their active roster, if he can put on 15 lbs in the next year he could be a contributor.

this article did not answer the question i've posed several times today:

how many players can a team put on IR?

and a corollary might be: what's the downside of putting him on IR?

Posted by: walter-in-fallschurch | August 30, 2010 4:51 PM | Report abuse

The downside to IR is that he's gets paid his salary, and in a normal year he would count against the salary cap.

So basically, there really isn't a downside to putting him on IR. He would, however, have to agree to it. There is a chance he could decide that his best bet is to get healthy and in another month take a shot with another team.

Upon what do you base your "Devin is a knucklehead" statement? You haven't heard any negative statements about DT from the staff or any unnamed sources. All there has been is speculation about his place on the depth chart. He starts when the lights come on Sept. 12. Book it.

4th, how can you still be high on MK12 at this point?

Posted by: learnedhand1 | August 30, 2010 4:55 PM | Report abuse

"Keep him (MK) on the active roster and hope his sore hamstring improves....(or) put him on the season-ending injured reserve list."

At some point, someone has to question why a player injured in August should be ineligible to play the remainder of the season should he get healthy.

And whereas we know a lot of the rules regarding the PUP and injured reserve list are intended to stop teams from stashing players, the NFL should consider, as a part of the discussion of lengthening the season, adopting a MLB-style 'disabled list'.

By using 15, 30, 45, and 60 day lists, an NFL team can maintain a roster spot for a player who can come back once he's rehabbed and thus recovered.

Under the present system, a player on the PUP or injured reserve list can't play: even if he gets healthy.

In this case, the skins could put MK on a 45 day list, allow his hamstring to completely heal, and let him play later in the season.

Had such a system been put in place before the previous season, CC would've been playing in the final month.

The league is considering lenghtening the season.

And it should also re-consider not letting guys who get healthy play once they are.

Moe, I couldn't agree more regarding the PUP/IR and proposed disabled list. More so than the team's being affected, imagine the frustration Kelly must feel. He was essentially forced into pushing his hamstring back before it was ready on the threat of losing his job, and now he may be forced into either unemployment or a year of idling for what could end up being a 1 or 2-month injury.

To give proper credit, the idea comes from radio personality Mike Francesa who explained his idea in detail on the FAN (on YES) just before the jets v. skins game.

I think it's a genius idea.

If the season is longer, a team really should be able to rest and re-hab a valuable, but seriously injured player.

LH - Kevin Sheehaan (I know I know) has said off and on that DT11 has apparently rubbed Shanny the wrong way talking to 'others' in the club, but never gets into specifics. So I was thinking, maybe shanny thinks that DT11 is a 'Thug'.

I'm still high on MK12 for the same reason Shanny is still in his corner.

Look (down) at the Rest.
Then Look (up) at MK12.
Then look back (down) at the Rest.
Now, look back (up) at MK12.
You notice you have to keep looking down at the rest?????

PLUS, everyone on the team acknowledges he has the best hands.

There is a lot to like in MK12. But does it matter if he can't stay healthy? He hurt it before camp. Came into camp and hurt it again. Took 4 weeks off and hurt it again. On top of injuries last year Hand injury during the season) and missing all of his rookie season.

And its not like he's dazzled us when he's been on the field. He lost his starting job last year. His only good game came vs SD's back-ups in their meaningless finale.

A lot of people thought he'd be great running the fade in the endzone, but the times I've seen him try it, its been ugly.

At this time last year, I was hopeful about MK12 and what he might bring to the team.

But its time to move on.

injury-prone WRs without much of a track record have no trade value. He'll be on IR because Shanny likes his work ethic and having him there can only do good--as opposed to releasing him for another team to grab.

no doubt Kelly needs to find a program that helps him stay healthy. TJ Housh found yoga helped him a lot. But the Redskins don't need to keep paying MK12 while he tries to figure it out.

He said he hurt himself because he didn't warm up adequately in McNabb's thing in AZ. He's not really doing his best to be healthy.

Round: 5
Pick (Overall): 18 (149)
Discuss
Pick Analysis: The Rams nab a defensive end with good athleticism and upside with the selection of Hall Davis. The former basketball player has intriguing physical tools, and could develop into a legitimate pass rusher in time. He is an interesting prospect for the Rams to groom for a bigger role in the future.

1.
OVERVIEW
2.
ANALYSIS

Overview

Davis was a two-year starter with solid production in college. He has a good combination of size, strength and athleticism for the position. He is a tough, hardnosed player with power to hold the point versus the run as well as the ability to push the pocket. He has good first-step quickness to gain leverage but isn't a natural reactor as plays unfold. Davis runs well but lacks lateral quickness and agility in space. He is an inconsistent tackler who has natural pop but doesn't always break down in the open field. Davis has tools to build on but lacks great instincts and likely will take time to develop.

Why would you do anything other than cut MK? Do you really think anyone else is gonna sign him anytime soon?

If you put him on IR and then have a couple of guys go down in November, you can't bring him back - and there is no point in keeping him on the active roster after the latest.

Cut him and tell him to get better and take a look at him again later if you think there is any value in that. It keeps the options open.

The fact that there's this much debate about MK shows how shallow our WR pool is. If he was a 3rd or 4th receiver, he'd be gone.

Problem is, our #1 and #2 WRs aren't fear-inducing, so the team keeps him around in the hope that he can become that #1 or #2 guy. Any team with 2 solid wideouts would have let him go by now.

I fully expect all the retards who post here not to understand the real meaning of a hamstring injury but what blows my mind is the grasp pro sports DOES NOT have on this injury. It takes at LEAST 2 months to fully recover from this and trying to push it just causes a major setback. I don't like Kelly from what I've seen so far and I think they should probably cut him, but all of you who think this is just some little nothing injury have never seen the entire back of your leg yellow and purple from a serious hamstring pull.

So, Galloway (who has never NOT been among the first string starters) was just camp fodder all along; AND Armstrong (the best WR in preseason on this team) gets cut.

If this is a serious post, then you either hang out w/Shanny and got him drunk one night and he spilled the beans about some serious preseason misdirection...or you are a total moron.

But if this is our WR corps come opening day, then I take back all the kind things I've said about how smart and competent Shallen's decisions have been.

Not sure what all the clamor is from some folks who want to IR MK, or stash him somewhere and check him out later...

...seriously, it's a blown pick, the dude has injury history; he had it in college; he's had it in the NFL; let it go.


Tall receivers who aren't fast but can catch some are not exactly once-in-a-lifetime athletes. If we really really need to we can probably find another one down the line to roll the dice on.

4th's WR list is such a laughable mess that I'm not even going to take the time to categorically list the many ways that sh*t is just loud wrong.

O_e nailed it. 'Nuff said.

The more I think about it, the more I think sticking MK on IR is the way to go. Doesn't count toward the final 53 and it gives him one more offseason to show he can play. If he can't get thru Training Camp 2011, then he's gone and there's no excuses.

Never heard of this Hall Davis cat, but if he's even a solid special teamer it's a great trade. Giving up a guy who wasn't going to make the team anyway is friggin' sweet...damn it feels good to have a FO for a change.

On Devin Thomas: Shanahan probably has more than one reason to not like him, but I doubt being a "thug" is one of them. I mean, this is the guy who drafted Maurice Clarett and won SBs with Bill Romanowski. Seems to me he's pretty turd tolerant...

I was right there with you on this about 12 hours ago...now I'm thinking there's no harm in putting the guy on IR and giving him a last chance next year. To me, the investment has been made and the there's no unringing that bell. It's not like MK is a locker room distraction like AH was/is...there's literally no downside to keeping him around for one more year and seeing if he's a legit player or just some high-priced training camp fodder.

SI is running an article about vets who may be cut. Don't know how many of you saw this, but one paragraph was pretty interesting:

Brandon Stokely
"Stokley's first impression under Josh McDaniels was a magnificent one, catching a deflected ball in the 2009 opener and scoring one of the most memorable game-winning TDs of the year. But Stokley, once called the best slot receiver in football by former coach Mike Shanahan, doesn't fit the McDaniels' mold at wideout.

Hmmmm....

Upon what do you base your "Devin is a knucklehead" statement? You haven't heard any negative statements about DT from the staff or any unnamed sources. All there has been is speculation about his place on the depth chart. He starts when the lights come on Sept. 12. Book it.


Posted by: learnedhand1 |

He showed up to several camps out of shape. He has had trouble learning the playbook, even one as simple as Zorn's. See, I can't PROVE he's a knuckle head, but a guy with the god-give gifts he has athletically, who has underperformed as a pro, one suspects is one with a head full of knuckles.

Doesn't imply he's a bad citizen, just a, well, knucklehead.

DeAngelo Hall will not be punked by tall female reporters

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on August 30, 2010 4:01 PM ET

DeAngelo Hall is not about to let a female reporter make him look short. That's why he asks Comcast Sportsnet Washington's Kelli Johnson take off her high heels when she interviews him.

Confronted on the topic by Johnson's colleague, Chick Hernandez, Hall copped to the truth.

"She was too tall. If I was 6 feet like [Carlos Rogers], I wouldn't have to do that, but I'm 5-11, so she definitely had to take them heels off for me," Hall said.

"He demands I do this every time," Johnson added. (Visual evidence and quotes provided by Dan Steinberg of DC Sports Bog.)

I can identify with Hall. Unfortunately, Johnson would still be taller than me even if she was slightly crouching with her shoes off.

(I also once dated a girl in college that was three inches taller than me. When she wore heels to dinner, it looked like her 12-year-old brother was visiting for the weekend.)

My advice to Hall: own your height. It lacks confidence to cover it up. The Redskins only list you at 5-10, which means you are probably shorter than that.

I also recommend dating short women. That helps.

I always prefer they leave em on...

I like the way the line runs up the back of the stockings.

I’ve always liked those kind of high heels too. you know, i...

No no no no, don’t take ’em off, don’t take... leave ’em on, leave ’em on.

You don't "warm up" in 'Zona for Crissakes. It's 120 degs when you step outside. Stretching is another matter though. One question is did the dud have knee and hammy probs in college? If yes, then why did the Skins draft him? If no, then why now but not before?

Of course, if Kelli Johnson is anything like 5'10" or taller, then she's bigger than at least four-fifths of the receiving corps, all of the defensive secondary -- three-quarters of the running backs, and nine-tenths of the special teams unit.

I wonder if she can run some pass patterns or cover a double move.

It's a sure bet that she already knows the playbook better than most of the so-called players, and she would be a definite upgrade for the huddle and hot tub.

"I also recommend dating short women. That helps."

After dating a very ugly girl, I decided to try hooking up with a very short one.

She was so small, I could sneak her into the club by hiding her in the front pocket of my pants.

This only serviced the purpose of impressing other women who thought I was excited to meet them.

In the bedroom, she loved me even more when my pants were half off.

In the heat of passion, she'd demand that I toss her across the room while calling her a dirty little dwarf.

I slipped once and called her nasty midget, a word I'd later learn was a despicable epithet for small people.

She came from a proud family of African American Leprechauns who spent more time hiding pot than gold.

The relationship came apart after I couldn't figure why she wouldn't perform fellatio on me no matter how much she bragged that she was good at it.

"I won't do it to you," she said, looking at my naked crotch. "Because I choke on small bones."

"Plus," she said while getting dressed. "Your shrimpy penis reminds me of a dirty little midget."

"And you know how much I hate that word."

No, that's wrong. What is shows is how much talent MK has. Even if we had 4 good receivers we wouldn't want to give up on this guy easily.

Posted by: Friend2All | August 30, 2010 6:29 PM

Easily? This has been far from easy. He misses his whole rookie season. Has a sub par sophomore campaign and then doesn't make it to one day of training camp, practice, or pre season. He's cost us a roster spot for far too long. I've been on his side up until this point. Even earlier today I said that IF he stays healthy I thought he would be on this team. Now, I hope he's gone.

This from the stunning talent that brought us:

"To a dipstick like you it wouldn't"

and of course, the jewel in the crown...

"The only roll that might work for you is with your doobie and even that do be tough for your pudgy little digits to did it."


Wow Skippy - you slay!


Yawn...

JReid just called Joey Galloway extremely old on WaPo live.

Posted by: scampbell1975 | August 31, 2010 12:09 AM | Report abuse

JReid just affirmed that he reads our comments. He says that he takes a lot of heat from Redskins fans for being negative.

Posted by: scampbell1975 | August 31, 2010 12:13 AM | Report abuse

scamp, I have to think a lot of that criticism of Reid is carried over from his extraordinarily polarizing predecessor.

And I think that anyone in that position (top dog on the WaPo Skins beat) is going to be subjected to a hell of a lot of heat, up here and elsewhere. It's the nature of the beast.

I've emailed Reid and met him a couple of times in person, and I think he's got the right attitude about all this stuff. By which I mean he's aware of the criticism but doesn't take it too seriously.

Sorry, I didn't say that well. I meant to say that I think Reid takes criticism of his work on the Skins beat seriously, but not too seriously.

jreid is a lazy reporter and is pretty much useless. anybody with a pulse could put out similar effort and work.

Well, at least he's consistent. He did follow an extremely negative and almost vindictive little sh!t in Canfora so I guess it follows that perception of the WaPo beat wroters in general would be the same. He sure does perpetuate it though.

HAIL!!!

Actually, Washington has to other options on how to handle Malcolm Kelly...

(1) Since Kelly has "good hands" he could be a hand donor to Carlos Rogers who has the legs but not the hands to catch interceptions. Carlos could give Malcolm his hands and then go to Oakland with the rest of the deadbeat Redskins.

(2) Malcolm Kelly could always try to play receiver while walking on his hands and then use his legs as chopsticks.

Malcolm Kelly, you are the weakest link. Buh bye!

The more I think about the possibility of getting Brandon Stokley, the more I like it. If there's a choice between Joey Galloway and Stokley as the 2nd/3rd WR, then I'm taking Stokley. Sure hope we pull the trigger on this...

brownwood,

What do you think they'll do with Kelly? IR or cut? IR seems like a waste of a year's salary, money that could be spent to resign some of our guys in the last year of their contracts. But in an uncapped year, well, it's only money.

I guess you'd need to talk to an MD to know whether this guy has any realistic prospect of an NFL career.

What good is Kelly's hands if he is eternally injured? First the knee, last season it was his route running, now its his hammy. That's 2 out of 3 seasons and he yet to show us anything. Chalk this one up as a bust draft pick.

Only one option that I can see: GOODBYE MALCOLM KELLY!!!!!!!! You'll look good in an Oakland Uniform!

C-YA!!!!!

Salary is less of an issue this season, so I wouldn't be surprised if they IR him. If his knees are sound, then we're not looking at surgery, and he could certainly come back strong next season.

My Week One WR's (in rough order on depth chart):

Moss
Thomas
Galloway
Armstrong
Austin
Banks

I know it's a young stable for the most part and therefore a bit risky, but this team is rebuidling, right? Why risk losing a potential game-changer like Banks or a diamond in the rough like Austin by putting them on the practice squad in favor of a Wade or Williams? Neither has done much in their careers nor, as far as I've seen, shined in preseason/camp to warrant retarding the youth infusion. Keep getting younger, develop Armstrong/Austin to be a #2, let Banks grow (literally and figuratively, I hope- dude can't long endure at 150 lbs) into the PR/slot WR role, allow the 3 vets to pull the lion's share of the weight in the meantime, Cooley/Davis will help pick up the slack. That's my input, which along with $7 will get you a Starbuck's venti. This isn't a "Super Bowl or bust" year. Show some patience and look to the future.

Can't he go on the practice squad???

There is a wide reciever on our roster who had hamstring problems early in his career. He turned out to be pretty good for us after another team basically gave up on him and traded him. He wears number 89.

I think the skins should hold on to Kelly for at least another year. No one who hasn't given up on him is under the impression that he hasn't been hurt a lot, but it isn't like it is one thing that just won't heal.

He was drafted with the expectation that he would miss time as a rookie. He was relatively healty last year and he pulled a hammy right before training camp this year. If he gets hurt next year, I don't think anyone (including him) would argue that he is just injury prone...but, to me, he has too much talent to let go at this point
