Next man up is Chris Thompson as the Washington Redskins placed RB Rob Kelley on the IR due to both knee and ankle injury.
The ‘Skins can’t catch a break. The one/two punch of Chris Thompson and Rob Kelley was an effective attack that opposing defenses had difficulties adjusting to. That’s gone. Thompson is still a dynamic threat but the power aspect of Kelley’s game will be sorely missed.
Chris Thompson will indeed see an increase in usage, however look for Samaje Perine to see a significant uptick in snaps as well with the team likes the mult-back attack.
What say you Sports Nation?
