Cowboys' Alfred Morris: Role could expand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris' role could expand following the Cowboys' Week 6 bye if fellow running back Ezekiel Elliott is forced to begin serving the six-game suspension he was previously levied by the NFL.

Elliott has been able to play while his suspension was being evaluated in court, but it was announced Thursday that his appeal was denied, leaving his availability for Week 7 and beyond in question. The Cowboys have not provided any indication who would start if Elliott indeed serves his suspension -- he could appeal yet again -- but both Morris and Darren McFadden would garner consideration. Morris would get points in his favor for suiting up four times this year to McFadden's zero, but McFadden ran for over 1,000 yards with the Cowboys in 2015, so the team could turn toward his direction knowing he has had success as the team's primary ball carrier in the past.

Cowboys' Alfred Morris: Breaks big run Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris carried the ball twice for 76 yards in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

Nearly all of those yards came on a 70-yard tote early in the second quarter that nearly got Morris his first TD of the season, but he was dragged down from behind at the five-yard line. The veteran's usage remains extremely limited behind Ezekiel Elliott, but Morris' big run should at least help him remain in the No. 2 spot on the depth chart and keep Darren McFadden on the game-day inactive list.

Cowboys' Alfred Morris: Barely gets on field Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris played only one snap and failed to get a touch in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

The Denver defense did an excellent job bottling up Ezekiel Elliott, but rather than turn to Morris, the Cowboys instead gave Rod Smith their only two non-Zeke carries of the day. This lack of usage doesn't bode well for Morris' hold on a game-day roster spot moving forward, much less his workload should Elliott be forced to serve his six-game suspension or otherwise be taken out of the Cowboys plans.

Cowboys' Alfred Morris: Still competing with McFadden for No. 2 role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday it remains a close competition between Morris and Darren McFadden for the top backup running back job, Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Morris occupies the higher perch on the depth chart of the two backs by virtue of being active for the season-opening win over the Giants, but he saw just eight snaps behind starter Ezekiel Elliott and didn't make much of an impression, gaining one yard on four carries. While neither Morris nor McFadden will be in store for a bounty of snaps in any given week while Elliott is healthy, the two players could take on greater importance later on in the season in the event that Elliott ends up having to serve some or all of the six-game suspension the NFL initially handed him in August. Elliott received a preliminary injuction last week from a Texas district court that will allow him to continue playing while the legal process unfolds, but the NFL's recent decision to appeal the injuction could result in Elliott's status being somewhat uncertain from week to week until a resolution is reached.

Cowboys' Alfred Morris: Ineffective in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris gained just one yard on four carries in Sunday's 19-3 win over the Giants.

He was surprisingly given the top backup spot behind Ezekiel Elliott over Darren McFadden (inactive) for this one, but Morris did very little with his few opportunities. The Cowboys figure to feature a run-heavy attack again in Week 2 against the Broncos, but Morris' touches will likely be limited once again -- assuming the team doesn't swap him out for McFadden on the game-day roster.
