Oft-injured WR Kelly, former 2nd-rounder, cut by Redskins

ASHBURN, Va. -- Oft-injured receiver Malcolm Kelly has been waived by the Washington Redskins.

Kelly, a second-round pick from Oklahoma in the 2008 NFL Draft, received an injury settlement Tuesday as the Redskins made the first round of cuts to get the roster down to 80 players.

Kelly was slowed by knee and ankle injuries his rookie season and missed all of the 2010 season because of a pulled hamstring.

This year, an injured right foot has sidelined Kelly since the first week of training camp. He did not play in the first three preseason games.

Kelly appeared in only 21 games for the Redskins, catching 28 passes for 365 yards and no touchdowns.

The Redskins also released defensive backs Dante Barnes and Tyrone Grant, quarterback Ben Chappell, offensive linemen Xavier Fulton and Corey O'Daniel, linebacker Eric McBride, kicker Clint Stitser and tight end Joe Torchia.

Defensive end Jarvis Jenkins, who tore the ACL in his right knee in last week's preseason game, was placed on injured reserve.
