Rob Kelley was the first running back through position drills at Wednesday's OTAs.
Kelley was followed by sophomore Samaje Perine and then rookie Derrius Guice. We wouldn't read much, if anything, into this, as the Redskins are likely going by veteran status on the first day of workouts. Kelley spent much of the second half of last season on I.R. with a high-ankle sprain and wasn't very good before the injury. Perine wasn't much better in relief before he also got hurt. This is going to be Guice's backfield on early downs much sooner than later. May 23 - 12:16 PM

ESPN reports "there remains a gap" between fourth-round RB Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley.

This is nothing coach Jay Gruden hasn't already told us, but Keim reports Perine is struggling in pass protection. The coaching staff also apparently believes he's "still thinking too much when running the ball, and learning when to juke a guy vs. just run over him." Perine could eventually unseat Kelley, but it sounds like sophomore Kelley is going to have more rope than expected as starter.

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler doesn't believe fourth-rounder Samaje Perine is going to push Rob Kelley for the starting job "anytime soon."

That's been pretty evident for weeks now, and Perine didn't do anything to close the gap in Thursday's preseason opener by fumbling the ball, dropping a third-down pass, and getting crossed up in a blitz pickup. Fumbling and pass protection have been ongoing issues for Perine all camp. Kelley is miles ahead in this battle.
