Denver Broncos rookie quarterback Chad Kelly had the cast covering his surgically repaired right throwing wrist removed Monday, Denver's 9news.com reported.
Kelly was a spectator as the Broncos began the final week of OTAs, and is not expected to participate through the balance of the session -- which ends Thursday -- or in next week's mandatory minicamp.
The Western New York native and former University of Mississippi standout was injured while doing pull-downs in weight training for the NFL Draft, during which the Broncos made him the final choice. The injury caused Kelly to cut short his April 3 Pro Day. He underwent surgery a few days later.
“I have to make sure I have to do what I have to do in the treatment room and get back as soon as possible," Kelly was quoted as saying by 9news.com. “More range of motion and then hopefully be able to grip the football and be able to throw again.’’
Kelly is also recovering from a second ACL surgery on his right knee.
