NFL suspends QB Kelly for two games

Reuters

The NFL suspended quarterback Chad Kelly for a violation of the league's personal conduct policy on Friday.

The Indianapolis Colts signed Kelly this offseason, and if he makes the team, he won't be eligible to play in a regular season game until Sept. 16. Under the suspension, Kelly can take part in offseason practices, training camp and preseason games.

He last played for the Denver Broncos and was released in October 2018 on the heels of an arrest for criminal trespass.

Englewood (Colo.) Police Department said a man had entered a residence on South Lincoln Street one morning shortly after 1 a.m. An occupant at the residence chased the man out, and a search ensued. Kelly had been attending a Halloween party at teammate Von Miller's house prior to the late-night incident.

At the time, he was the Broncos' No. 2 quarterback behind Case Keenum.

Kelly, 25, has no guarantee to be more than a training camp arm. The Colts are locked into their top two quarterbacks, Andrew Luck and Jacoby Brissett, and Phillip Walker is currently listed behind them on the depth chart.
