Redskins RB Matt Kelley (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the 49ers. RB Samaje Perine will handle early-down duties and is a RB3 or flex option in fantasy lineups.

Redskins RB Matt Kelley (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the 49ers. He didn’t practice all week, and HC Jay Gruden essentially confirmed earlier in the week that Kelley won’t play. That’ll leave early-down duties to RB Samaje Perine. The rookie has struggled so far this season and is just a RB3 or flex.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden labeled RB Rob Kelley (ankle) a "long shot" for Sunday's game against the 49ers. We've removed him from the Week 6 RB Rankings. Kelley's absence will again leave early-down duties to RB Samaje Perine. The rookie has mustered just 3.1 yards per carry through 4 appearances. He's no better than a RB3 or flex.

Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ankle) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. He did some stretching before the workout, according to NBC Washington's J.P. Finlay, but obviously still isn't close to 100%. Kelley is no better than 50/50 to play against the 49ers this weekend.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden labeled RB Rob Kelley "day-to-day" with the ankle injury he suffered in Monday night's loss to the Chiefs. Washington has a Week 5 bye, and it sounds like Kelley has a good shot to be ready come Week 6.

Redskins RB Rob Kelley injured his ankle in the 1st quarter of Monday night's game in Kansas City and has not returned. He entered this one dealing with a rib injury. Samaje Perine is back in as Washington's lead ball-carrier.

7:10pm EDT 10/2/17

Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ribs) is active for tonight's game against the Chiefs. He's a risk/reward fantasy play at less than 100%. RB Mack Brown is a healthy scratch.

Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ribs) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Chiefs. We might not know Kelley's official status until 8 pm ET on Monday. And even if he plays, there's a chance he's limited. That'd mean a bigger role for RB Samaje Perine. But both guys are risky Week 4 fantasy plays.

Redskins RB Rob Kelley (rib) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. He was limited all last week, too, so this doesn't tell us much about his status for Monday night's game against the Chiefs. RB Samaje Perine (hand) was a full-go on Thursday and figures to serve as Washington's lead back if Kelley remains sidelined.

7:09pm EDT 9/24/17

Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ribs) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Raiders. That leaves Samaje Perine as Washington’s early-down back. The rookie mustered just 3.2 yards per rush last week after going carry-less in the opener. He’s just a RB3 or flex option in what could turn into a pass-happy affair.

Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ribs) is not expected to play against the Raiders tonight, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's a bit of a surprise after Kelley made it through 3 limited practices this week. His absence would leave Samaje Perine as Washington's early-down back. The rookie hasn't looked ready for the NFL so far, but volume makes him a RB3 or flex option for Week 3. Note that RB Chris Thompson's role did not expand after Kelley exited last week's game. He remains a risky fantasy bet even in PPR leagues.

Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Raiders. He put in 3 limited practices this week. We’re expecting Kelley to play, but he’s a risky fantasy starter at less than 100%.

Redskins RB Rob Kelley (ribs) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. That would seem to put him on track to play against the Raiders on Sunday night. The rib issue adds risk to his Week 3 fantasy outlook, but we'd expect Kelley to operate as Washington's lead back after RB Samaje Perine struggled last Sunday.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden said Monday that RB Rob Kelley is dealing with a rib cartilage injury. That's much better than a fracture. Gruden labeled Kelley "day-to-day." It sounds like he has a shot to play against the Raiders on Sunday night.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden said after Sunday's win over the Rams that RB Rob Kelley might have a fractured rib. We should get confirmation tomorrow. With Kelley sidelined, rookie RB Samaje Perine took 21 carries -- but totaled just 67 yards.

Redskins RB Rob Kelley is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Rams with a rib injury. He was rolling before the injury, taking 12 carries for 78 yards. We'll update Kelley's status when we learn more.

UPDATE: Kelley was ruled out for the rest of the game at halftime.

Redskins RB Rob Kelley took 10 carries for 57 yards and a score in Sunday's preseason game. He ripped off a 21-yarder in the 2nd quarter and plunged in a 1-yard TD later in the drive. Kelley was even targeted twice in the passing game, catching 1 ball for 3 yards. RB Samaje Perine, meanwhile, carried just once for 3 yards with the 1st-team offense. This was the nail in the rookie's coffin. Perine is just a late-round flier in fantasy drafts. Kelley is locked in as Washington's lead back heading into Week 1. He'll lose passing-down work to RB Chris Thompson but will be a low-end fantasy starter.

Redskins RB Samaje Perine fumbled in Thursday night's preseason game against the Ravens. He recovered, but that won't matter to the coaching staff. Perine has reportedly struggled with ball security in training camp, so this has become a concern. The rookie finished his night with just 15 yards on 5 carries. RB Robert Kelley carried 3 times for only 2 yards but strengthened his grasp on the starting job in this one.

The Washington Post's Master Tesfatsion says "it's clear" Robert Kelley will be the Redskins' starting RB. Kelley has run with the 1st-team in training camp, while Samaje Perine has reportedly struggled with pass protection and ball security. There's still time for the rookie to make a move. And Tesfatsion concedes that Perine could siphon more work if he gets a "hot hand." At this point, though, Kelley looks like the better fantasy bet. He's lasting until the 12th round of recent MFL10 drafts, though, while Perine is going in the 8th.

Redskins RB Samaje Perine has "a ways to go" to catch RB Rob Kelley atop the depth chart, according to the Washington Post's Mike Jones. That jibes with OC Matt Cavanaugh's declaration last month that Kelley had "earned" the starting job with his 2016 showing. Kelley finished with a decent 4.2 yards per carry, although he mustered just 3.2 over his last 6 outings. Washington's coaching staff evidently liked what it saw, though. And Kelley has reportedly worked on his pass-catching ability while shedding some body fat this offseason. Perine beats out Kelley in the college production and athleticism departments and certainly has a shot to claim a significant role this year. But he's currently going 3 full rounds ahead of Kelley in fantasy drafts.
