Kelly had a 2017 campaign that was riddled with injuries before he was ultimately placed on injured reserve in December due to a concussion. However, he now appears to be healthy and cleared of all symptoms and should be ready to participate in offseason workouts.
Kelly did not play in last Thursday's game against the Broncos, marked his third straight missed contest. The 24-year-old had not progressed through the league's concussion protocol as hoped and will have the entire offseason to recuperate, leaving Mike Person to continue as the Colts' starter at center.
Kelly (concussion) won't play Thursday against the Broncos.
Kelly was listed as a full participant in Tuesday's practice, but his failure to take the field in any capacity Wednesday suggests that he may have hit a setback in his recovery from the concussion. With Kelly still in the NFL's protocol and now set to miss his third straight game, Mike Person is expected to pick up another start at center.
Kelly was inactive for Sunday's loss to the Bills as he had yet to clear the concussion protocol. A full practice doesn't necessarily mean the 24-year-old is fully in the clear, but it's nonetheless a good sign, especially at this point in the week.
Kelly (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills.
Kelly was originally listed without an injury designation by the colts on Friday, but he's yet to clear the league's concussion protocol and will therefore be sidelined for Week 14. Mike Person (ankle) will likely fill in at center if he's able to play through a minor injury of his own.
