The other cuts are as follows: running back
Minnifield is the son of former Browns Pro Bowl cornerback Frank Minnifield. The younger Minnifield was projected as a middle-round pick out of Virginia in 2012, but went undrafted before signing with Washington.
"The only thing that’s been settled is Alf and Helu," Shanahan said Tuesday, per The Washington Post. "Everything else is up for grabs. We’ve got a good problem to have because I think there’s a bunch of guys there that can play in this league and that can help us. They’re gonna make us have to make a tough decision next week. And really, every play is gonna count for them."
Williams rushed for 52 yards on just 8 carries and showed some burst with a 23-yard run around left end in the middle of the fourth quarter. He also scored on a 1-yard run. Thompson proved steady with 44 yards on 15 carries. He displayed plenty of speed and quickness with a 31-yard punt return.
Neither will usurp Morris as the featured back and Helu did nothing to hurt his standing as the backup with a performance in which he rushed for 70 yards on just 13 carries. But Williams and Thompson certainly raised their stock on Saturday.
