By Ernie Padaon

Veteran wide receiver Kelley Washington will miss the rest of the preseason with a knee strain according to Kevin Acee:

This will give more opportunities for the youngsters to get playing time during the preseason and this could be interesting to see what this does to Kelley Washington. Washington has made good strides with the special teams and showed lots of promise as a backup receiver last season, but was it enough to last through a deep receiving unit and through the preseason. Seyi Ajirotutu needs a spot to play, Richard Goodman will be looking for a spot and Bryan Walters wants one of those spots also. There are not many spots left for a receiver, but an opportunity just opened up for someone to make a steal.
