Washington Redskins running back Rob Kelley might need surgery for an injured toe and could miss at least a month, coach Jay Gruden confirmed to NBC Sports on Monday.

Kelley, 25, only had one carry in Sunday’s loss to Indianapolis after rushing three times for 7 yards in the season-opening win at Arizona.
Kelley was expected to compete for a starting role entering the offseason, but the Redskins drafted the since-injured Derrius Guice in the second round in June and signed veteran Adrian Peterson in August.
Peterson has been the leading rusher for Washington through two games, carrying 37 times for 116 yards and a touchdown.
During his three seasons with the Redskins, Kelley has appeared in 24 games and rushed for 906 yards and nine touchdowns.
