During the Ole Miss Pro Day, former Rebel QB Chad Kelly re-aggravated a wrist injury and was unable to throw for the scouts in attendance. He was scheduled to workout for scouts on April 22, but a new report will be yet another blow to Kelly’s NFL draft stock. According to USA Today’s Tom Pelissero, Kelly had to undergo wrist surgery and will be unable to throw for at least three months. 

Pelissero posted a follow-up tweet about Dr. James Andrews’ optimism that Kelly will make a full recovery. 

Even if he is expected to make a full recovery, this injury will again raise questions of Kelly’s durability. The QB tore his right ACL while at Clemson in the 2013 spring game, the same one that ended his 2016 season. The wrist injury will be a factor in his draft stock coupled with his off-the-field concerns. Leading up to the draft, Kelly will have to find a team out there willing to take a chance on him. Rebel fans have seen firsthand what Kelly can do while healthy, but only time will tell if he will get his chance to shine at the pro level.
