ASHBURN, Va. -- When Robert Kelley showed up a few pounds heavier after his red shirt year at Tulane, running backs coach David Johnson gave him a backpack with Fat Rob inscribed on it, and the nickname stuck.More of a moniker among friends than anything else for several years, Fat Rob resurfaced when Kelley joined the Washington Redskins in training camp. The undrafted free agent is now going into his third game as the Redskins starting running back Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers.He earned the spot by being Positive Rob.Usurping Matt Jones as the No. 1 back, Kelley has stabilized the offense by holding onto the ball and seemingly always getting back to the line of scrimmage if not much further.There arent many negative plays with Robert, coach Jay Gruden said. You stay on track as a play-caller, and it makes the game flow a lot smoother when youre in second-and-7, second-and-6, second-and-5, and thats a great tribute to him. Hes a hard runner.Kelley isnt flashy, but hes effective. Since taking over the starting role Oct. 30 against the Cincinnati Bengals, 39 of his 43 carries have been for positive yardage, with just one loss and three for no gain.Kelley takes great pride in that stat.Thats how I run the ball, Kelley said. Im not one of (those) guys that sits back all day and just try to dance around. I try to get north and south as much as possible.Gruden said Kelley putting the Redskins in manageable down-and-distance situations means your whole playbook is open and allows quarterback Kirk Cousins to freeze defenders with play-action. It worked in a 26-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings when Kelley ran for 97 yards.It does make a difference and keeps our offense going in a positive direction, Cousins said. The play-action game can be effective for us.Because third-down back Chris Thompson is a capable receiver out of the backfield and the change-of-pace runner, Kelley doesnt have to try to do too much -- just hold on to the ball. While Jones lost the job in part because of his fumbling problems, Kelley has yet to fumble in 60 NFL carries.Success has come quick for the 24-year-old from New Orleans, so much that he doesnt believe it. When Jones hurt his shoulder during the preseason, Kelley was reluctant to say if hed be able to carry the load as the starter.When Kelley learned from Gruden last month that he was being named the starter, he tempered his excitement and was determined to make the coaching staff proud. Hes in the midst of doing just that, but he didnt expect to be a pro starter this quickly.Im always surprised, he said. I always try to take advantage and dont just go out there and get big-headed and stuff like that.Far from becoming over confident, Kelley continues to study film in the hopes of improving. He saw cuts he missed against the Bengals and worked to not make the same mistakes in his second start.He said some of his biggest runs have come on off-schedule plays, but he hasnt yet broken off anything longer than 18 yards. Kelley considers cohesion with the offensive line the next step in his progression.Just keep constantly showing my guys I trust in them -- the front line, the front five -- and make those guys look better, Kelley said. They also try to make me look better. They make holes for me that I dont have to do too much to get through and stuff like that. We kind of work together and try to build that chemistry with those guys.NOTE: WR DeSean Jackson was a limited participant in practice Wednesday because of a left shoulder injury. After missing the Vikings game he took part in individual workouts, but Gruden was noncommittal about Jacksons status for Sunday night.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Chad Thomas Browns Jersey .4 million title.

Corey Davis doesnt often get to operate in the limelight, but he will be on the national television stage Tuesday, a day in which most Americans head to the polls.Best Receiver in the Nation isnt on the ballot, but the Western Michigan stars name would certainly be listed if that category was up for voting.Davis is 210 yards away from becoming the FBS career leader in receiving yards, and the Broncos look to remain unbeaten when they visit Kent State in Mid-American Conference play (7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN2).Davis has helped put Western Michigan (9-0, 5-0 MAC) in position to record 10 victories in a season for the first time in school history. The Broncos are one of five remaining unbeaten teams and are 14th in this weeks Associated Press poll.Davis is coming off a huge performance in which he caught 12 passes for a school-record 272 yards and three touchdowns in a 52-20 rout of Ball State last Tuesday in a nationally televised game. Broncos coach P.J. Fleck chided him for a couple of drops and said the performance could have better.He left a lot of meat on the bone as well, Fleck said. He could have had 340 or 350 yards.Still, Davis is a near-certainty to overtake Nevadas Trevor Insley (5,005 receiving yards from 1996-99) as the all-time leader with three regular-season games, the MAC title game and a bowl game left on Western Michigans docket.He leads the nation with 14 touchdown receptions, and his 47 career receiving scores are tied for the MAC record. He has caught 61 passes for 1,011 yards this season.Kent State (3-6, 2-3) is allowing 204.8 passing yards per game and will be aiming to slow Davis and a Western Michigan offense that ranks fifth nationally in scoring at 45.2 points per game.Each of the Golden Flashes three MAC losses came by four points. A major issue for Kent State has been the inability to hold on to fourth-quarter leads.You think about where you could be, Kent State coach Paul Haynes said. Its nothing to hang your head on. We are where we are. Its just making sure that we finish the right way.Kent State will be without a key defensive player, as senior free safety Nate Holley was suspended indefinitely after getting arraigned on a ffelony kidnapping charge.dddddddddddd Holley has 111 tackles and ranks second nationally in tackles per game (12.3).The Golden Flashes defense will have to rely more on senior outside linebacker Terence Waugh, a stellar pass rusher who has eight sacks.Kent State has one of the best defenses we face all year, Fleck said. We have to be way better than we ever have. Weve got a lot of things to clean up, on all three phases.On offense, Kent State will be hard-matched to keep up with the Broncos if lots of points are being put on the board.Junior Nick Holley, the twin brother of Nate, was moved to quarterback after a flurry of early-season injuries. The former running back has passed for 668 yards and three touchdowns against two interceptions while rushing for 775 yards and nine scores.Only one player has more than 200 receiving yards for Kent State, true freshman running back Justin Rankin with 301.Western Michigans edge in firepower runs deeper than the electrifying Davis. Senior quarterback Zach Terrell and junior running back Jarvion Franklin are also enjoying big campaigns.Terrell has 2,362 passing yards and 23 touchdowns and with just one interception. He ranks third in MAC history in passing yardage (10,933) and ninth with 86 touchdown passes.Franklin ranks fifth in Western Michigan history with 3,306 rushing yards, and his 38 rushing scores are one behind school record-holder Jerome Persell (1976-78). He has rushed for 1,018 yards and nine touchdowns this season.Junior weak-side linebacker Robert Spillane leads the Broncos with 79 tackles for a unit allowing 19.3 points per game. Senior defensive end Keion Adams has a team-leading 5.5 sacks.Western Michigan, which leads the series 33-20-1, is entering uncharted territory as it seeks its first-ever double-digit campaign. Fleck and the players insist that they arent feeling any pressure.We just worry about the next game, junior tight end Donnie Ernsberger said. The target does become bigger. We embrace it. We face the facts and go in there and prepare for the next team. ' ' '
