The Washington Redskins have promoted Matt Cavanaugh to offensive coordinator, the team announced on Monday. Additionally, the Redskins have hired Kevin O'Connell to be the team's next quarterbacks coach.

Prior to joining the Redskins’ coaching staff in 2015, Cavanaugh was previously quarterbacks coach for the Arizona Cardinals (1994-95), quarterbacks coach for the San Francisco 49ers (1996), offensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears (1997-98), offensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens (1999-04), quarterbacks coach for the New York Jets (2009-12) and quarterbacks coach for the Chicago Bears (2013-14).

Fantasy Impact:

In eight seasons as an offensive coordinator, Cavanaugh's offenses have never finished higher than 14th in yards gained, with an average ranking of 21.3.

Washington Redskins running back Robert Kelley underwent a surgical procedure on his right knee shortly after the season-ending loss to the New York Giants, a source has confirmed with Breaking Burgundy.

Kelley suffered a sprained knee injury in the Week 16 win over the Chicago Bears, but played against the Giants with a brace. The procedure, considered relatively minor according to a source, lasted approximately 30-45 minutes and dealt with the meniscus. Kelley resumed walking per usual within a couple of days and physical therapy soon after.

Fantasy Impact:

This sounds like a minor repair, so Kelley should be fine by minicamp/OTAs.
