Rob Kelley A Long Shot To Play In Week 6

This article first appeared on

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins running back Rob Kelley, dealing with injuries to his ribs and ankle, is “a long shot to play” in Week 6, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Prior to the Redskins Week 5 Bye, Kelley was confident that he would be ready to go for Week 6, but he was also very confident that he’d be ready for the Redskins Week 3 game, a contest he ultimately sat out. Rob Kelley is proving not to be the most reliable source for good info on Rob Kelley‘s game availability. He has a tasty matchup on tap with a 49ers defense that is playing its third straight road game and is coming off consecutive overtime contests, but his status for Sunday is still in doubt. Furthermore, rookie Samaje Perine has not done himself any favors in rushing for under three yards per carry and killing a second half drive against Kansas City with a fumbled pitch in Week 4. Add Mack Brown to your watch list. If Rob Kelley can’t go Sunday, he could get into the mix and has looked better than Perine, albeit in very limited action.
