Morris is considered day-to-day after aggravating his rib injury during Week 11, the Washington Post reports. Morris was unable to finish Sunday's game due to the injury. He was able to play through it the previous weekend.
Redskins head coach Jon Gruden said that Morris' rib injury is a tough issue for a running back to deal with, CBS DC reports. Morris was removed from Sunday's game against the Panthers in the first quarter after aggravating a pre-existing issue. There hasn't been any indication that it's a severe injury, but head coach Jay Gruden did suggest that the pain could result in missed time, which lead to a larger workload for Matt Jones. The Redskins face the Giants in Week 12.
Morris carried twice for zero yards before leaving Sunday's game against the Panthers with a rib injury. The 26-year-old was limited in practice because of a rib injury he suffered in the Week 10 game against the New Orleans Saints, which he likely re-aggravated Sunday. Rather than turning to Matt Jones or Chris Thompson for a significant contribution, the Redskins were simply forced to throw, as they trailed by 24 points at the half. The severity of Morris' latest ailment still remains to be seen, but Jones and Thompson would be in line for larger roles if he were to miss next week's home matchup with the Giants.
Morris is questionable to return to Sunday's game at Carolina due to a rib injury. Morris sustained a rib injury last Sunday but was able to finish the contest, racking up 15 carries for 92 yards and corralling all three targets for 14 yards against the Saints. If he's unable to return in Week 11, Matt Jones and Chris Thompson will head Washington's backfield.
Morris (ribs) is active Sunday at Carolina. Morris remained on the injury report this week despite logging full practices each day. He'll suit up Sunday, where he's likely in line to continue sharing time with rookie Matt Jones. Both backs will take on a relatively tough Carolina run defense that has allowed 103.4 rushing yards per game on the year.
