Antonio Morrison: Cited for flight interference
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison was cited for flight interference March 1, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Morrison was not arrested as a result of the incident, which occurred seven days before the Packers' decision to release him. Green Bay saved $2 million toward the cap in 2019 by parting ways with Morrison, so the decision may have come purely from a cost-cutting standpoint, but it's possible that the 24-year-old's citation could dampen his appeal on the open market. Morrison played all 16 games -- including eight starts -- last season, notching 48 tackles and one sack across that span.

Antonio Morrison: Cut loose by Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers released Morrison on Friday.

After Jake Ryan tore his ACL at the outset of training camp last summer, the Packers tinkered with other options at inside linebacker before landing Morrison via trade in late August. Morrison proceeded to play all 16 games with eight starts, parlaying 28 percent of the defensive snaps and 56.5 percent of those on special teams into 48 tackles and one sack. The 24-year-old will seek out employment elsewhere, though a similar role to that in Green Bay may be the best he can expect.

Packers' Antonio Morrison: Tackle total cut in half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison played in 16 games with the Packers in 2018 and tallied 47 tackles (27 solo) and a sack.

Morrison topped the 100-tackle mark with the Colts in 2017, but he did not even get halfway there in 2018 following a preseason trade to the Packers that left him playing a far lesser role. The Packers' new coaching staff will likely decide whether Morrison returns to Green Bay in 2019.

Packers' Antonio Morrison: Little production in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison recorded just one tackle in the Packers win over Atlanta on Sunday.

Morrison has fallen off from his 109 tackles in 2017. He's seen limited snaps this season and has just 39 tackles through 13 games. He'll look to bounce back and finish the season strong as the Packers take on the Bears in Week 15.

Packers' Antonio Morrison: Sack on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison recorded eight tackles (five solo) and a sack across 31 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

The Patriots' offensive line did a great job of protecting Tom Brady all night, but Morrison was able to burst through for a third-down sack late in the third quarter. The linebacker was second on the team in tackles despite only playing in 44 percent of the defensive snaps. If he can continue to produce at this level, there's a good chance Morrison could continue to see increased reps.

Packers' Antonio Morrison: Making strong case for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison, who has been impressive throughout training camp, has a chance to make the 53-man roster, Wes Hodkiewicz of the team's official site reports.

According to the report, Morrison's strengths align nicely with newly minted defensive coordinator Mike Pettine's system. Morrison seemingly has positioned himself to make a strong case for a roster spot with 53-man cuts looming. Even if he makes the team, however, it's likely Morrison will be of most service on special teams.

Packers' Antonio Morrison: Sent to Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts traded Morrison to the Packers in exchange for Lenzy Pipkins, Michael Cohen of The Athletic Wisconsin reports.

The Packers appeared to get the better end of the deal here, as Pipkins projects to be a special teams player while Morrison led the Colts with 109 tackles in 2017. Green Bay needed depth at linebacker after Jake Ryan tore his ACL and Oren Burks suffered a shoulder injury before the third preseason game. If Burks' injury is serious, Morrison could be the Week 1 starter.

Colts' Antonio Morrison: Leads Colts with 109 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison recorded 109 tackles (64 solo) and one pass defensed in 15 games with the Colts in 2017.

Morrison started all 15 games for Indianapolis and finished the season as the team's top tackler. The 23-year-old took a step forward in his sophomore season and likely heads into 2018 as a presumed starter at inside linebacker for the Colts.

Colts' Antonio Morrison: Records 11 tackles in Thursday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison had 12 total tackles in Thursday's 25-13 loss to Denver.

Morrison is averaging 7.3 tackles per game on the season, making him a steady source in that category in IDP leagues. He has failed to record a sack or interception, however, which has prevented him from ascending to the top tier of producers at linebacker.

Colts' Antonio Morrison: Nine tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison recorded nine tackles (five solo) in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

Morrison continues to rack up tackles for the Colts defense, as his season total now reaches 64 (35 solo). He'll now get the week to rest up before taking on the Titans in Week 12.

Colts' Antonio Morrison: Racks up tackles in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison recorded 13 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 27-0 blowout loss to the Jaguars.

Morrison was the only member of the Colts' defense with more than five tackles in a game the team likely wants to forget. It was the 22-year-old's best statistical output of the season, following tallies of seven tackles in each of the last four contests.

Colts' Antonio Morrison: Seven tackles in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison had seven total tackles in Sunday's 26-23 overtime win over the 49ers.

He averaged eight tackles per game over the last four contests of last season after moving into a starting role, and is averaging 6.3 tackles per game this season. He hasn't graded well against the run, however, but his starting inside linebacker job seems secure.

Colts' Antonio Morrison: Full participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison (elbow) was a full participant at the Colts' practice Wednesday.

Morrison will look to return to action Sunday against the Browns after sitting out the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Cardinals. If active, the 22-year-old would likely reclaim a starting role at inside linebacker and take on a significant snap count.

Colts' Antonio Morrison: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison (elbow) will not play in Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports.

When exactly Morrison suffered the elbow injury is currently unknown, but he did play 57 defensive snaps in the season opener and recorded four tackles in a start at inside linebacker. Anthony Walker Jr. is dealing with a hamstring injury himself, so if he is ruled out Sunday, the Colts could be dealing with serious depth issues at linebacker.

Colts' Antonio Morrison: Four tackles in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison started at inside linebacker and had four total tackles in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

Morrison played 57 snaps so he'll be a mainstay of the defense. He averaged eight tackles per game the last four games of last season after moving into a starting role, so Sunday's game was a disappointment. However, he should get plenty of opportunity for tackles on a defense that will struggle to get off the field.

Colts' Antonio Morrison: Set to begin season as starting linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison is listed a starting linebacker at the "Mike" position on the Colts' unofficial depth chart.

Morrison could be primed for a robust amount of tackles at middle linebacker in a defense that is likely to struggle to get off the field. Morrison averaged eight tackles per game the last four games of last season after moving into a starting role.

Colts' Antonio Morrison: Records nine tackles in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison started at inside linebacker opposite Edwin Jackson with D'Qwell Jackson suspended and had nine total tackles in Sunday's loss to Houston.

Morrison played 49 of 67 snaps on defense as it looks like he'll get the bulk of playing time at inside linebacker while Jackson is out another three games after a PED suspension.

Colts' Antonio Morrison: Expected to start at inside linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison will start at inside linebacker opposite Edwin Jackson with D'Qwell Jackson suspended for four games for PED use, Mike Wells of ESPN reports.

It's also possible that Morrison shares snaps with Josh McNary, but it sounds like Morrison will get the first shot at a larger role.

Colts' Antonio Morrison: Plays just one snap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison did not have a tackle and played just one snap on defense in Sunday's loss to Houston.

Josh McNary got all the snaps at inside linebacker opposite D'Qwell Jackson as it looks like Morrison will have a deep reserve role after the release of Sio Moore. Morrison played 25 snaps last week when McNary left the game with an injury, but McNary was fully healthy Sunday.

Colts' Antonio Morrison: Five tackles in reserve role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrison had five total tackles and a quarterback hit in Sunday's win over Chicago. He played 25 snaps and came off the bench at inside linebacker playing behind new starter Josh McNary.

McNary got the start with the release of Sio Moore. However, McNary suffered a neck injury during the game which could push Morrison into the starting role.
