The dominoes couldnt have fallen any better to give undrafted rookie running back Robert Kelley an opportunity to show the Washington Redskins what he could do.Starter Matt Jones and third-down back Chris Thompson were out of the Friday preseason game against the Buffalo Bills with injuries, and Kelley got the start. Fellow rookie Keith Marshall, a seventh-round pick, sprained his left elbow on his first carry of the game, making it Kelleys stage the rest of the first half with the starters.Kelley ran for 51 yards on 12 carries, and the Tulane product looked every bit like a player capable of filling the top job Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers if Jones separated shoulder hasnt completely healed by Sept. 12.He looked good, left tackle Trent Williams said. He found the creases, he moved forward. Obviously there are some things we can clean up, but I think it was a good outing for him.Kelley stood out to everyone, except maybe himself. The 23-year-old thought he did well running and protecting quarterback Kirk Cousins but wasnt ready to express confidence in himself as the No. 1 running back if called upon.Hes still approaching it like he has to earn a spot on the 53-man roster.Once I get on this team, then we can start going on to other ventures, Kelley said after Washingtons 21-16 victory. Every time I get up there I try to put myself in a better situation to make the team, take advantage of the opportunity.The opportunity was certainly there given the injuries to Jones, Thompson and then Marshall, but Kelley appeared to impress coach Jay Gruden early in training camp. Gruden gave Kelley rave reviews before players put on the pads and with contact liked more of what he saw from the 6-foot, 228-pounder who can shift direction without wasting energy.Kelley made decisive runs against the Bills and fell forward to gain extra yards. Gruden said Kelley ran hard and well, but he was also looking to see what the young running backs could do in pass protection.Kelley was strong in that department, too, taking care of plenty of Buffalo blitzes, though he acknowledged room for improvement.Theres probably blocks I couldve gotten more of his body or something like that, but for the most part I think I did pretty good in picking up protection with the O-line, Kelley said. I thought I did a good job, especially out there with Kirk. Theres not too much thinking because hes pointing everything out there to you, so youre kind of getting the answers to the test.Kelley has passed each test so far in the preseason and feels he has most improved on special teams. Throw in the blocking and its probably enough to show he should be ahead of second-year back Mack Brown on the depth chart and could be an every-down runner if required.A lot of guys can run the ball, but its what you do when you dont have the ball: Can you help out the O-line? Can you protect that quarterback? Kelley said. I think all of us can run the ball well, so its what you can do when you dont have the ball in your hand.Kelley, a New Orleans native, has impressed Cousins with his runs, blocks and overall approach.I think he showed a lot of confidence tonight as he got going, and hes a talented football player, Cousins said. I think when youre a rookie and undrafted and youre in that position, what you need is belief. You need people around you to believe in you and have confidence in you because he does have the talent and he can run the football well. You just have to continue encouraging him.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Alex Mack Jersey . Nigeria beat surprise package Ethiopia 2-0 in the second leg of their playoff for a comfortable 4-1 aggregate victory. Victor Moses converted a 20th-minute penalty after an Ethiopian handball, and Victor Obinna made certain of Nigerias place in Brazil with his powerful free kick in the 82nd at UJ Esuene Stadium.

In the response filed Wednesday to the complaint by 30-year-old Alexander Bradley, attorneys say the former University of Florida player is invoking his Fifth Amendment right that protects people from incriminating themselves. Ty Sambrailo Jersey . Just not the game. Kyle Palmieri scored two straight goals in the third period to rally the Anaheim Ducks past the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Tuesday night. Tony Gonzalez Jersey . Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said.A three-goal defeat to Arsenal on Saturday would condemn Sunderland to the worst-ever start to a Premier League season after 10 games. The struggling Black Cats are bottom of the table with just two points from their first nine games, with a goal difference of -10. Sland vs Arsenal October 29, 2016, 11:30am Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass They come up against an Arsenal side tied on points with league leaders Manchester City live on Sky Sports on Saturday - and a heavy loss at the Stadium of Light would hand David Moyes men an unwanted record. They currently have one of the worst records from the first nine games of a Premier League season. Sheffield Wednesday (1999/00) and Manchester City (1995/96) had just one point at this stage of their respective nightmare campaigns, while Southampton had two points and a -18 goal difference in 1998/99.

After all, they went winless in their first nine games last season too - they are the first team for 111 years to not win any of their opening nine games in the top flight in consecutive seasons - before beating rivals Newcastle 3-0 and eventually going on to stay up. However, they did have three points at this stage in 2015/16. Sam Allardyce steered Sunderland to survival after their poor start last season The longest winless run at the start of a Premier League season belongs to Queens Park Rangers, who took 17 games to record a victory in 2012/13. They eventually beat Fulham 2-1 on 15 December, 2012, but finished bottom of the league and were relegated. Moyes will be hoping his side get back to winning ways well before that point - and an upset win over high-flying Arsenal would be the perfect way to relieve the pressure.
