After a strong performance in Week 1 of the preseason agains the Ravens, rookie running back John Kelly continued to impress against the Raiders. The sixth-round pick from Tennessee received a bulk of the carries, given starter Todd Gurley did not play and Justin Davis was sidelined because of a hamstring injury. Kelly rushed for 56 yards and a touchdown in 18 carries. "I was just happy to get the snaps," Kelly said. "Be out there to get the clicking with my teammates and everybody." Kelly took a handoff on fourth-and-two, fumbled as he crossed the goal line, but recovered his own fumble for a touchdown. "I was trying to pad the stats," he said, chuckling. It was once thought the Rams would only carry three running backs. But because several positions opened on special teams, it's possible they keep four.
