Chad Kelly is hard at work rehabbing from a knee injury that ended his final college football season.
The Ole Miss quarterback suffered a season-ending knee injury against Georgia Southern on Nov. 5. But Kelly is already making good progress in his recovery. He tweeted out a video of himself Friday doing 175 pounds on the leg press with his recovering knee.

Kelly reportedly tore his ACL and lateral meniscus. NFL teams will be watching his recovery very closely. NFL.com reported in November that Kelly had a seventh-round draft grade after the injury. Kelly had returned to Ole Miss for his senior season in hopes of improving his draft stock.
In nine games in 2016, Kelly threw for 2,758 yards, 19 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. True freshman QB Sea Patterson became the starter after Kelly’s injury.
