Kelley is Redskins' top RB despite Peterson, Charles visits

A slimmed-down Rob Kelly is likely to remain the Washington Redskins' starting running back even though some big names could be joining the team to bolster its decimated backfield.

Amid four injuries in their backfield, the Redskins are talking with Adrian Peterson, Jamaal Charles and former Giants running back Orleans Darkwa and could sign one or two of them. But Kelley, the former "Fat Rob" who lost weight and added speed to his repertoire, is still the front-runner to start Week 1 at the Arizona Cardinals.

Washington lost second-round pick Derrius Guice to a season-ending torn ACL, won't have Samaje Perine and Byron Marshall for and extended period of time because of lower-leg injuries and waived undrafted free agent Martez Carter with an injury designation. That necessitated meetings with Peterson and Charles and a workout for Darkwa, though coach Jay Gruden has enough confidence in Kelley to consider any additions just a way to replenish some depth.
