Redskins RB Rob Kelley suffered rib cartilage injury, remains day-to-day

Redskins RB Rob Kelley suffered rib cartilage injury, remains day-to-day”

Redskins coach Jay Gruden initially feared Kelley suffered a broken rib when the running back had to make an early exit from Sunday's 27-20 win over the Rams. Fortunately, the second-year pro escaped serious injury.

But there is some good news regarding Kelley, and he's now considered day-to-day with a rib cartilage injury.

Kelley is dealing with a bruise that knocked him out of Sunday's contest, but he's expected to be active for Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday Night Football. "They're all a concern, but they're all tough guys and hopefully we'll have them". "I think he'll try to play with that thing, but you never know how much pain he's in".

Kelley had 12 carries for 78 yards before leaving, with rookie Samaje Perine replacing him. Thompson's role in the passing game is safe, regardless of Kelley's status (seven receptions on 12 targets in two games this season), and he's worth checking on despite being pretty widely owned in ESPN fantasy leagues (67.3 percent). He should see a lot of action next Sunday if Kelley is unavailable. "He ran with great pad level and got the tough, physical yards we needed", Gruden said, according to the Washington Post.

Reed has a chest sternum contusion. He finished the game with six catches for 48 yards.
