The first three players drafted by the Redskins a year ago are rookies no more and, after a season of disappointment, face expectations increased by the knowledge that Coach Jim Zorn's hopes of diversifying and expanding the offense rest with them, embattled QB Jason Campbell and a beleaguered offensive line. Already this spring, merely keeping WRs Thomas and Kelly healthy has been difficult. On the 1st day of the team's 3-day minicamp Friday, Thomas re-aggravated the right hamstring injury that sidelined him for much of 2008 training camp. Kelly did not participate, as his left knee continues to heal from microfracture surgery. Both are expected to be able to participate in organized team activities in June.
