Kelly, Brown Out for Friday’s Preseason Game

Via The Washington Post:

After what might have been the hottest practice of training camp yet – no cloud cover, temperatures in the upper-90s – Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan went over a little bit of what’s to be expected from Friday night’s preseason opener against Buffalo. Two prominent players – starting right tackle Jammal Brown and third-year wide receiver Malcolm Kelly – won’t play because of injury, Shanahan said.

Brown, acquired in a trade with New Orleans, participated in some individual work Tuesday morning, but did not play during full team action because of the hip problem that has kept him out of workouts since last Wednesday. Shanahan said Brown would have a shot in the hip Tuesday afternoon.

“He’s getting closer,” Shanahan said. “I would anticipate him being able to go Monday, after the game, or Sunday. He’s getting treatment. He’s feeling better. He’s going to have some type of shot in there to alleviate some of the pain, but hopefully there’s not much of a setback and he can start practicing pretty soon.”

Kelly’s hamstring problem has cost him nearly all of training camp.

“He’s just trying to get that hamstring strong,” Shanahan said. “We wouldn’t put him in that situation to play this quickly. But hopefully he’ll be able to go next week as well. … I’ve seen hamstrings last for a month. I’ve seen other hamstrings come back in three or four days. Obviously his was quite sore, and we’ll just treat it day by day.”
