    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Practices fully Wednesday

    Morris (rib) practiced fully Wednesday, Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. In Week 10, Morris suffered a rib injury but played through the pain, totaling 15 rushes for 92 yards and three receptions for 14 yards. He attempted to do the same Sunday at Carolina, but his early aggravation resulted in no production whatsoever. Head coach Jay Gruden confirmed the nature of the ailment Wednesday, calling it a bruised rib, with no fractures or cartilage damage, according to Brian McNally of 106.7 the Fan DC. As a result, Morris' availability for Sunday's game versus the Giants isn't really in question, but his workload could be curtailed if he's unable to handle the discomfort.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Dealing with aggravation

    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.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Leaves Sunday with rib injury

    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.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Suffers rib injury

    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.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Active Sunday, as expected

    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.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Team-high 92 yards in rout of Saints

    Morris (ribs) rushed 15 times for 92 yards and caught all three targets for 14 receiving yards during Sunday's 47-14 rout of the Saints Morris suffered a rib injury in the second quarter but was able to return in the third, eventually finishing with the most rushing yards on the team. However, backup Matt Jones also made a major impact, rushing 11 times for 56 yards and catching three passes for 131 yards, including a 78-yard touchdown while Morris was being looked at on the sideline. The two continue to split touches out of the backfield, so while both were able to succeed Sunday, things are likely to be much harder in Week 11 against the Panthers in Charlotte.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Questionable to return in Week 10

    Morris (rib) is questionable to return Sunday against the Saints. Morris had nine carries for 37 yards along with three catches for 14 yards. While he misses time, Matt Jones and Chris Thompson should see an increase in snaps.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Four touches in loss

    Morris had four carries for 10 yards Sunday against the Patriots. The Redskins fell behind 17-0 midway through the second quarter, which forced them to abandon the run, though Morris finished with seven fewer carries than Matt Jones, who rushed for 27 yards and caught two passes for 17 receiving yards. Head coach Jay Gruden said earlier this week that Morris and Jones would both play a lot in the coming games but it just wasn't in the cards Sunday. Up next is a Week 10 matchup against the Saints, though with Morris failing to rush for even 25 yards in four straight games (and five of his last six), he makes for a desperation fantasy play.

    Redskins' Alfred Morris: Will still have role

    Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said that Morris and Matt Jones will both play a lot, reports. The Redskins come out of their bye week with a highly difficult road matchup in New England, potentially setting up Matt Jones to take on the lion's share of the workload. Morris started the Redskins' previous game, but with the team falling behind early, he only ended up playing 10 snaps, compared to 45 for Jones. Of course, Chris Thompson (neck) usually gets most of the passing-down work, and he could perhaps return from injury for Sunday's game. The Washington backfield is a mess, and Week 9 doesn't set up well for Morris.
