QB Chad Kelly has surgery on wrist, can't throw for 3 months

Chad Kelly’s wrist surgery is the latest setback for the former Ole Miss quarterback

Quarterback prospect Chad Kelly of MS underwent wrist surgery earlier this week, serving another blow to his chances of being selected in this month's NFL Draft.

Kelly is expected to make a full recovery and be back before training camp.

Yet another interesting nugget about the Kansas City Chiefs a quarterback.

Kelly is the nephew of Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly.

Combined with concerns about his off-field behavior, his latest setback could deliver a serious blow to his hopes of being selected in the NFL Draft. In a shortened 2016 season, he threw for 2,758 yards, 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

He already was recovering from an ACL injury suffered during Ole Miss' 37-27 win over Georgia Southern on November 5. In April 2014, he was kicked out of Clemson following a sideline argument with coaches. He threw for more than 4,000 yards as a junior.

According to Kelly's agent Duray Oubre, the Bills have reached out to the St. Joe's product to attend the team's local Combine April 17th. In 2015, he pleaded guilty to a noncriminal charge of disorderly conduct stemming from a fight with bouncers outside a Buffalo, New York, nightclub.

He was scheduled to workout for scouts on April 22, but a new report will be yet another blow to Kelly's National Football League draft stock.

Kelly's performance at Mississippi's pro day was cut short after he experienced pain in his wrist.
