While the Washington Redskins prepare for their game this weekend, they may have to do it without running back Rob Kelley.

The bye week came at a perfect time for the Redskins due to the fact that they lost several key players to injury agains the Kansas City Chiefs.
However, it seems like Kelley's ankle injury could sideline him an extra week. If practice is any indication, don't expect to see Kelley on the field this Sunday.

Last year, Kelley was a pleasant surprise as he ran for over 700 yards and had seven touchdowns. He hasn't seen the same success so far due to the emergence of Chris Thompson, but Sunday did provide a solid opportunity for Rob Kelley to turn his season around.
Fortunately enough for Washington, they'll be going up against the winless San Fransisco 49ers.
