Malcolm Kelly Goes To Injured Reserve

Posted by Matt Terl on August 31, 2010 – 1:54 pm

The long saga of Malcolm Kelly seems to have come to an end, at least for this year, as Coach Mike Shanahan announced today that the wide receiver is headed for injured reserve. This ends his season and means that he can’t practice with the team, but he can attend meetings and rehabilitate the injury around the facility.

And you might think that this decision — to IR and not to cut — means that Kelly’s going to have a chance to make the roster next year, but Shanahan didn’t sound quite so confident. “A lot has to do with how he works relative to getting healthy,” Shanahan said. “I like the guy as a person. I think he’s got a lot of qualities you look for in a football player. The main thing is can he get out there on the football field eventually and play. If I see the right type of work ethic and him doing the little things — the little things the right way — he’s got a much better opportunity to be with us next year, but I’ll evaluate that as time goes on.”

For now: it’s another lost season for Malcolm Kelly.

After the jump: Malcolm Kelly’s lost 2010 in Redskins Blog headlines.
Reading the Malcolm Kelly-centric blog post headlines from this year looks like the table of contents from a depressing story of hope dashed and optimism unrewarded. Check it out.

For me the money quote comes from the “Frustration Grows” post, and I’ll repost it here to stand for the whole darn list of them:

“I don’t know if words can really explain how frustrating it is,” Kelly said today, walking off the far practice field after catching yet another round of passes from the machine. “Especially when you come in with high expectations of yourself and they got high expectations, it’s just … it’s frustrating.”
