Redskins rookie WR Kelly could be headed for IR

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

You could say that the two receivers the Redskins took in the second round have been unmitigated disasters so far, but I'm probably being generous. Head coach Jim Zorn just told reporters in Ashburn, Va., that former Okahoma star Malcolm Kelly (knee) might be headed for injured reserve. The other options are the PUP (physically unable to perform) list or being active for Thursday's game against the Giants. So many options, so little time. Kelly and Devin Thomas both reported to camp out of shape, and neither player is ready to make an immediate impact. I'm sure owner Daniel Snyder and VP of football operations Vinny Cerrato are seething over the fact that the "weapons" they coveted remain under lock and key.

Zorn also broke the news that Stephon Heyer is on the verge of winning the job at right tackle over veteran Jon Jansen -- and that it has nothing to do with Jansen's foot injury. Zorn was apparently pleased that Heyer fought through an injury of his own and played well against Jacksonville on Thursday.

Safety LaRon Landry will return to full practices this week and Zorn hopes he'll be ready for the Giants. He also said he might rest defensive end Jason Taylor so that he'll be ready to go in Week 2.
