  Cardinals | Tommy Kelly to visit    Mon Aug 25, 05:06 PM

The Arizona Cardinals are scheduled to meet with free-agent DT Tommy Kelly (Patriots).

Footballguys view: After losing Darnell Dockett for the season to a knee injury, the Cardinals could use help on the defensive line. Kelly played in only five games last year due to an ACL injury, and he is not the player he used to be.

  Patriots | Three released    Sun Aug 24, 05:53 PM

The New England Patriots released DT Tommy Kelly, DE Will Smith and LB James Anderson.

Footballguys view: Anderson had arguably the best chance to make the final roster out of this group of players. Kelly and Smith are no longer the same players they used to be, and they were unable to make a positive impression in camp with the Patriots.

New England Patriots CB Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder), WR Aaron Dobson (foot), WR Jeremy Gallon (undisclosed), DT Tommy Kelly (knee) and WR Matthew Slater (undisclosed) will begin training camp on the team's physically unable to perform list.

Footballguys view: Dobson is the player fantasy owners need to watch here. He had an inconsistent rookie season last year, but the team needs him to start playing up to his potential this year. Dobson could start on the outside opposite Danny Amendola this season.

  Patriots | Several players sidelined    Sat Jun 14, 11:31 PM

New England Patriots WRs Aaron Dobson (foot) and Brandon LaFell (undisclosed) were sidelined from practice Saturday, June 14. DT Armond Armstead (undisclosed), DL Dominique Easley (knee) and DT Tommy Kelly (knee) were also sidelined.

Footballguys view: Bad news for Dobson and LaFell. Both need to stay on the field and establish the best chemistry they can with Tom Brady. Dobson was a second-round pick last year, but he struggled to impress as a rookie. LaFell was a free agent addition this offseason who is best known for being a run-blocker and career underachieving wide receiver.

  Patriots | Two likely to be ready training camp    Thu Feb 6, 01:40 PM

New England Patriots LB Jerod Mayo (pectoral) and DT Tommy Kelly (knee) are both likely to be ready for training camp in the opinion of Field Yates of ESPN Boston.

Footballguys view: The injuries on the defensive side of the ball were almost as bad as those on the offensive side, just less well covered by the media at large because Tom Brady wasn't involved. Mayo and Kelly coming back will be a big help.

  Patriots | Tommy Kelly's season over    Sat Nov 2, 04:29 PM

Footballguys view: Another blow to the Patriots defensive line here. They've already lost NT Vince Wilfork for the season and will now be playing without Kelly as well. Now we'll see them use a varying group of players up front. Players like Isaac Sopoaga, Chris Jones, and Joe Vellano will be asked to do more.

The New England Patriots have declared CB Aqib Talib, OG Chris Barker, WR Danny Amendola, WR Josh Boyce, RB Leon Washington, CB Tavon Wilson, DL Tommy Kelly inactive for Week 7.
