  • John Kelly: Joins Cleveland's practice squad

    Kelly signed with the Browns' practice squad Tuesday, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Kelly rejoins the Browns after being waived Saturday. In a corresponding move, Cleveland released fellow running back Dexter Williams from its practice squad.

  • John Kelly: Waived by Browns

    The Browns have waived Kelly, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Kelly was just activated off Cleveland's reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday. With Nick Chubb, D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton all healthy, Kelly was the odd-man out in the backfield.

  • Browns' John Kelly: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    Kelly (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports.

    Kelly has cleared the league's COVID-19 protocols, but fellow running backs Nick Chubb and Demetric Felton both remain on the reserve/COVID-19 list. With Kareem Hunt (calf) expected to remain on IR, Kelly would slide into the backup role behind D'Ernest Johnson for Sunday's highly favorable matchup against the Lions if neither Chubb nor Felton are activated by then.

  • Browns' John Kelly: Sitting out Sunday

    Kelly (illness) won't be available Sunday at New England, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Coach Kevin Stefanski noted all of Nick Chubb (illness), Demetric Felton (illness) and Kelly will be unavailable Week 10 due to COVID-19 protocols. With Kareem Hunt (calf) still on IR, the Browns backfield will be headed by D'Ernest Johnson, with practice-squad members Brian Hill and Dexter Williams likely to be elevated for Sunday's contest.

  • Browns' John Kelly: Lands on COVID-19 list

    Kelly was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

    Kelly has appeared in three games for the Browns this season, but he has only recorded two touches for 13 yards. His absence shouldn't affect Cleveland's backfield rotation.

  • Browns' John Kelly: Tests positive for COVID-19

    Kelly did test positive for COVID before being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Kelly joins Nick Chubb and Demetric Felton as Browns running backs who have tested positive for COVID, leaving D'Ernest Johnson as the only healthy running back on the current roster. Kelly's absence wouldn't normally be much of an issue, as he's only played three offensive snaps all season, but with the void the Browns now have in the backfield every body counts.

  • Browns' John Kelly: Makes season debut

    Kelly had two carries for 13 yards in Thursday's 17-14 win over the Broncos.

    Kelly was added to the active roster off the Browns' practice squad, as both Nick Chubb (calf) and Kareem Hunt (calf) were sidelined. The 25-year-old was on the field for three snaps and served as the third back behind D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton. Chubb, who has missed two games but isn't on injured reserve, could return to action Week 8 against the Steelers. If he does, Kelly is unlikely to remain on the active roster for that contest.

  • Browns' John Kelly: Signs to active roster

    The Browns signed Kelly to the active roster from the practice squad Tuesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Kelly will provide some emergency depth in Cleveland's banged up running back room, with a Thursday night matchup against Denver just around the corner. In corresponding transactions, Kareem Hunt (calf) and Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah (ankle) have been placed on IR.

  • John Kelly: Returns to Cleveland

    Kelly was signed to Cleveland's practice squad Wednesday.

    Kelly ran with the Browns in 2021 preseason and saw a lot of action in preseason games, as Cleveland held Nick Chubb out for all three games and Kareem Hunt for two. The Browns kept four running backs, including combo WR/RB Demetric Felton, so it would take multiple injuries for Kelly to make it to the active roster.

  • Browns' John Kelly: Pens future deal

    Kelly signed a reserve/future contract with the Browns on Tuesday.

    Kelly spent most of the 2020 season on the Browns' practice squad. The 2018 sixth-round pick faces long odds to make the roster in 2021, as Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt and D'Ernest Johnson are all under contract.

  • John Kelly: Back with Cleveland

    The Browns signed Kelly to their practice squad Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Kelly was cut by the Browns on Tuesday but returned to the club just 24 hours later. Kelly has been with the practice squad since the beginning of the season, and has posted 83 yards on 30 carries and 27 yards on two receptions in his NFL career to this point.

  • John Kelly: Shown door by Browns

    The Browns cut Kelly from the practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Kelly has been with the practice squad since the beginning of the season but was never elevated to the active roster. The 24-year-old running back has banked eight NFL games in his two-year career, posting 83 yards on 30 carries and 27 yards on two receptions.

  • John Kelly: Joining Cleveland

    The Browns signed Kelly to their practice squad Tuesday, Matt Zenitz of AL.com reports.

    After the Rams selected him in the sixth round of the 2018 draft, Kelly wasn't afforded much opportunity in a backfield led by Todd Gurley. In the post-Gurley landscape, the RB group was trimmed down to a top three of Malcolm Brown, Darrell Henderson (hamstring) and Cam Akers. The Rams proceeded to waive Kelly, who now will look to work his way up to the Browns' active roster.

  • John Kelly: Jettisoned by Rams

    The Rams waived Kelly on Friday, Stu Jackson of the team's official site reports.

    A sixth-round selection by the Rams in 2018, Kelly has made just eight appearances through two pro seasons and oscillated between the 53-man roster and practice squad. Overall, he averaged 2.8 yards on 30 carries and hauled in two of three targets for 27 yards. Considering how the team has approached Kelly to date, he likely will be signed to the practice squad if he clears waivers.

  • Rams' John Kelly: Mentioned by coach McVay

    Sean McVay mentioned Kelly as one of four running backs on the Rams' roster who can be viewed as a "starting-caliber" player, per The Helliepod podcast.

    The other three are veteran Malcolm Brown, 2019 third-round pick Darrell Henderson (ankle) and rookie second-round pick Cam Akers. McVay's comment aside, that leaves Kelly as the forgotten man of the group as a 2018 sixth-round pick who has played just 53 offensive snaps in eight NFL games, bouncing between the inactive list, the practice squad and a backup role. There aren't many fantasy formats where Kelly will warrant a draft pick, but he could emerge as a player to watch if the other running backs in Los Angeles struggle to stay healthy and productive.
