Arizona State senior QB Taylor Kelly completed 24-of-34 attempts for 240 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 36-31 Sun Bowl win versus Duke.
We don't think much of Kelly as an NFL prospect, but he's certainly been one of the Pac-12's most underrated signal-callers over the past three seasons. Kelly missed three games earlier this year with a foot injury and finished with 2,114 passing yards and a 22/5 TD/INT ratio on a 59.4-percent completion percentage. You'll be hearing from him again soon: Kelly will play in the East-West Shrine Game. Dec 28 - 1:56 PM

AZcentral.com's Doug Haller notes that the Sun Devils expect to have senior QB Taylor Kelly healthy entering Saturday's Sun Bowl against Duke.

Ever since the ASU prospect returned from his right-foot surgery Oct. 25, the Sun Devil's offense has took a dip in production. Kelly added that because he wasn't able to strengthen his legs, he "couldn't run," and his "legs would get fatigued after the first quarter." The Sun Devils QB has had over month to get healthy, and should be able to put his best foot forward against the Duke Blue Devils.

Arizona State senior QB Taylor Kelly has accepted an invitation to play in the East West Shrine Game.

Kelly is not a good quarterback prospect, but the senior class is weak in general. The Shrine now have five of six quarterbacks on their accepted list. Kelly missed time this season due to injury, and we think his replacement, Mike Bercovici, played better in some instances.
Dec 3 - 1:33 PM

Arizona State senior QB Taylor Kelly threw for 232 yards and four touchdowns on Saturday against Washington State.

He finished 15-for-25 with no interceptions, a highly efficient game which accrued the highest QB rating he's enjoyed in 2014 (190.8). Kelly has been up-and-down since his return from a broken left foot a little over a month ago. For instance, he played a critical role in the blowout win over Notre Dame, and then, seven days later, was awful in an upset loss to Oregon State. Hopefully Saturday's game portends a hot stretch of football to end Kelly's collegiate career.

Arizona State OC Mike Norvell said that he thought senior QB Taylor Kelly "feels 100%."

Kelly missed three games with a broken left foot and has had to work his way back to game speed. On Saturday, the Idaho native completed 17-of-28 passes for 224 yards and three touchdowns in the team's win over Notre Dame. "I feel very confident that with each week that goes by he’ll be sharper and sharper. It’s hitting at the right time for us coming down the stretch," Norvell told Inside Read. If Arizona State has any chance of busting into the playoff party, they'll need Kelly to play high-level football.

Arizona State senior QB Taylor Kelly threw for 224 yards and three touchdowns on Saturday.

This was Kelly's best outing since returning from a foot injury in late October. The senior showed nice touch on several deep balls and completed 17-of-28 passes in route to his 224 yards. Despite some nice performances like this, we don't consider Idaho-native Kelly to be a legitimate NFL prospect.
Nov 8 - 7:41 PM

In his return to the field, Arizona State senior QB Taylor Kelly (foot) completed 14-of-25 attempts for 180 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 24-10 win versus Washington.

It was the first time Kelly had played since injuring his right foot on September 13 against Colorado. His return didn't exactly go great, as Kelly posted a poor 14.8 QBR rating. The Sun Devils managed only 10 points through the game's first 57 minutes, but Kelly hit Gary Chambers on a seven-yard scoring strike with three minutes left, and then Armand Perry returned an interception 61 yards for a score shortly thereafter to seal the outcome.
Oct 26 - 7:21 PM

Arizona State senior QB Taylor Kelly is expected to start versus Washington.

Kelly has missed multiple weeks while recovering from a right foot injury. We are of the opinion that Mike Bercovici might be a better player, but obviously Kelly has the "experience" tag on his side. It will be a difficult game to return for, as Washington has plenty of individual defensive talent.
Oct 21 - 10:59 AM

Arizona State head coach Todd Graham said Arizona State senior QB Taylor Kelly will be a game-time decision on Saturday versus Stanford.

"If Taylor (Kelly) is ready by game time, he says ‘Coach, I'm ready', then he's going to play," the third-year HC said on Thursday. Kelly returned to practice on a limited basis last week. He's been out since injuring his right foot on September 13 at Colorado. "If we played today," Graham said Thursday, "(Mike) Bercovici would play because I don't think Taylor is quite ready." Graham indicated, however, that Kelly is improving daily. "He's repped, and he went through everything yesterday except team session because we don't want to take any chances of re-aggravating (the injury) with somebody stepping on him or something," Graham said.

Arizona State senior QB Taylor Kelly returned to practice on Thursday, but on a limited basis.

It was the first time Kelly practiced since injuring his right foot on September 13. "Kelly ran with the team during pre-practice stretching and threw the football, but he remained mostly limited, watching his teammates run through drills," beat writer Doug Haller writes. Head coach Todd Grantham did call Kelly "an option" for the school's October 18 game against Stanford. Junior Mike Bercovici has been the starter since Kelly's injury.

Arizona State senior QB Taylor Kelly (foot) will miss Saturday’s game against USC.

Sun Devils' coach Todd Graham confirmed the unfortunate news on Wednesday. Kelly will now have missed crucial games against UCLA and USC while nursing the unspecified foot injury he suffered in a Sept. 13 win over Colorado. Graham told the media he hopes Kelly can return by Oct. 18's clash against Stanford. We didn't love Kelly's NFL prospects even before the injury.
Oct 2 - 8:10 PM

Arizona State HC Todd Graham said senior QB Taylor Kelly is "pretty questionable" for Saturday's game versus USC.

Kelly missed Thursday's loss to UCLA while nursing the unspecified foot injury he suffered in a Sept. 13 win over Colorado. "Taylor has the boot on and stuff, but it’s precautionary," Graham said Monday. "He is running in the pool, he is exercising in the pool and has no pain, so he’s doing really well." If nothing else, the injury came with good timing, as ASU had a bye before the UCLA game and has another one following Saturday's contest against the Trojans. After that, the Sun Devils won't play again until Oct. 18 against Stanford. Backup Mike Bercovici, who threw for 488 yards and three touchdowns against the Bruins, will be called upon again if Kelly can't go.

Arizona State senior QB Taylor Kelly is considered "very questionable" for Saturday's game against USC.

Kelly's foot injury will be examined on Wednesday. "For now it appears, junior quarterback Mike Bercovici will get his second start," beat writer Doug Haller writes. In his lone start Bercovici threw three touchdowns and interceptions against UCLA.

Arizona State senior QB Taylor Kelly has been ruled out against UCLA with a foot injury.

Senior Mike Bercovici will start in his place. Kelly was injured against Colorado, and reports immediately surfaced stating he would likely miss this game. UCLA faced quarterback injuries of their own in their last contest, but Brett Hundley is expected to play in this game.

Arizona State senior QB Taylor Kelly is not expected to play against UCLA on September 25 following a foot injury suffered against Colorado, according to ESPN's Joe Schad.

"In a best case scenario maybe ASU’s Taylor Kelly makes it back for USC on" October 4, Schad added. Expect Mike Bercovici to start in Kelly's absence. The Sun Devils have a Saturday off before facing the Bruins on a Thursday. Kelly is an effective college quarterback, but his pro prospects are not good.
