ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins rookie receiver Malcolm Kelly had arthroscopic surgery on Monday on his left knee and is expected to be sidelined for two more weeks.
The surgery, performed at the Andrews Institute in Pensacola, Fla., removed loose particles from the knee.
"It has been kind of stiff. ... We just thought we'd do things as soon as we can if there is a problem," coach Jim Zorn said.
Kelly was a second-round pick from Oklahoma in the 2008 NFL Draft. He and fellow rookie Devin Thomas were expected to contend for the No. 3 receiving spot, but both have been hurt for much of camp. Thomas missed Sunday's game with a hamstring injury and also isn't expect to play in Saturday's game against Buffalo.
