Shanahan Wraps Up A Busy Day

Thursday marked one of the most eventful days at camp so far, and Shanahan had a lot to discuss with the media after practice.  Here are the highlights:

1. Ryan Torain has a broken hand that required four screws and is out at least a week.

This is not what he wants or needs to seize that starting job.  The only drawback to Torain has always been the injury bug, and he got bitten early this year.

2. Cooley hasn’t been a big part of the offense yet, and is dealing with soreness and fluid in his knee.  He has been intentionally held out so far, and “will be monitored day-to-day.”

This isn’t good, per se, but it has allowed more snaps for tight ends Fred Davis, Mike Sellers, and Logan Paulsen.

3. Reed Doughty, Rocky McIntosh, and Kedric Golston were brought back today, and are part of what Shanahan referred to as a “core group of players,” and “guys that are full-go, give you everything they have.”

He did not elaborate on their roles, but clearly expects each of them to contribute.

4. Wide receiver Malcolm Kelly was held out this afternoon because of a tweaked hamstring/groin.  “He was a little sore today.  The trainers felt like he couldn’t go.”

Hopefully Kelly can shake this injury and get back out on the field.  With 10 other receivers in camp, he needs to stand out in a good way.

    Seems like another Kelly breakdown. 1st year he didn’t report his knee being scewed up before the draft so we said “oh ok, get yourself right, 2nd year the hammy, this year: the hammy again. I’m all for chances and especially this guy since he was such an investment but if he can’t go by wk 2 of preseason you have to cut ties. We have way too many competitions to wait around for him unfortunately. Cerrato probably needs some help though…wherever he is.

    There was a reason why Kelly dropped to the bottom of the 2nd round… All managers except Cerrato knew Kelly’s knee was messed up prior to the draft.

    As far as I’m concerned, it’s time to write off both Kelly and Torain. With Hightower, Housh and the draft picks, Shanny has the depth to replace them.

    Championships are not won with injury-prone players, no matter how skilled and talented. So I think it’s time for a little goodbye and good luck to them.
