The picture above — wide receiver Malcolm Kelly about to catch a pass — is not from today. It could’ve been; at about 11:30 Larry Weisman tweeted about Kelly’s “long-awaited” return to practice. The the media portion of practice closed and something happened.
“I really don’t know how bad it is,” head coach Mike Shanahan told the media after practice. “It’s definitely a setback.” Shanahan didn’t rule out the possibility of Kelly making the team or being placed on injured reserve, but in a crowded field of wide receivers, not being able to play at all can’t be a good thing for Kelly.
This is hugely disappointing news for Kelly, who was sounding relatively optimistic yesterday for the first time in weeks. “I’m feeling pretty good. I’m feeling a lot better than I have,” he said yesterday.
“We’ll see how it goes tomorrow in practice,” he said yesterday.
“The clock has been ticking,” he said yesterday.
“Tomorrow’ll really be the true test of what I’ll be able to do,” he said yesterday.
And it seems to have been. Unfortunately, the results weren’t exactly what he had hoped.
