He's still nursing sore ribs stemming from the Week 2 win over the Rams. Rob Kelley had expressed confidence last week that he would play vs. the Raiders, but the team decided otherwise and shut him down. But when he returns, Kelley will be the No. 1 back.
"He got  yards rushing in a quarter and a half last week, so he's still our No. 1 lead dog," Redskins coach Jay Gruden said.
He'll practice Wednesday, albeit in a limited role, the story said. The Redskins don't play again until Monday night at Kansas City so owners will need a backup plan.
