The Washington Redskins will head to Dallas this weekend for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
The road trip marks the first homecoming of Longview's Malcolm Kelly as a pro.
KLTV 7 Sports Director Maya Golden talked with Malcolm by phone Thursday afternoon. Malcolm said he will make the trip to Dallas but as far as playing he is questionable for Sunday's game because of an ankle injury.
Kelly did not practice with the Redskins on Thursday.
The former Lobo and Oklahoma Sooner was drafted in the second round by the Redskins in April. He has had some problems with a hamstring injury as well and had arthroscopic knee surgery during training camp.
Malcolm played in his first game on September 14th against the Saints. Despite the injury, Malcolm says he is excited to come home as an NFL player.
"Basically it's just like the first time I came back home when I went to Oklahoma and came back down to the Cotton Bowl," Malcolm said. "You come back and get to play against the team you grew up loving your whole life. That just adds that much more excitement to it once you come back and get ready to play especially now being a professional athlete. It just so happens to be for another team but that just adds that much more excitement to it.
Cowboys and Redskins will kickoff Sunday at 3:15 p.m.
