Colts QB Chad Kelly May Face Suspension

The Colts gave Chad Kelly another NFL opportunity, but it’s not a given that he’ll be on the roster for Week 1. For starters, Kelly is hardly guaranteed to make the Colts’ 53-man cut. And, even if he does, Kelly could still face suspension from the NFL, Ian Rapoport of (on Twitter) hears. 

The league office tells Rapoport that Kelly’s situation is still under review. The professional quarterback/amateur rapper has had several off-the-field missteps and his latest incident in 2018 resulted in a guilty plea to misdemeanor second-degree criminal trespassing and his release from the Broncos.

Before being cut by Denver, Kelly had an opportunity to leapfrog the struggling Case Keenum as the club’s starter. Now, Kelly is hoping to stick as a backup behind Andrew Luck and Jacoby Brissett while avoiding a ban to start the season.

    This guy’s been in the sports press so much I’m getting to the point I wanna see if he can throw or not. He’s practically becoming the most covered 2nd string QB that’s not a rookie since Tim Tebow.

      I watched him for his 1.5 years at Ole Miss. Guy was a straight gunslinger who wasn’t intimidated by any defense and very mobile

        That’s what I gather, and all I hear is bad press. Dude’s gotta have some kind of value to still be around. Granted, being a nephew of a HOF QB doesn’t hurt either, but I’m not buying that’s why he’s not selling real estate yet.

          He has talent, he wild have been the Broncos starter if not for what happened last season. He’s just not mature enough.

          Oh he’s also an idiot. Like not a very intelligent person but he knows football

            Yeah, at least abnormal psych. You don’t go into people’s houses without warrant. There wasn’t a whole lot of press about BAC levels, so I’m not entirely sure he was that drunk.

      Mike Vick had some media coverage as a 3rd stringer, just a tiny bit…
