Morrow is expected to occupy a starting role at weak-side linebacker for the remainder of the season following Cory James' (knee) placement on injured reserve, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
James has been troubled by knee issues all season and missed the Raiders' last two games before being shut down for good. While James was sidelined the past two games, Morrow has risen to the forefront, producing 16 tackles and holding his own in coverage. Morrow could be worth a look in deeper IDP settings down the stretch now that he has a clear path to heavy snaps.
Morrow (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
He's played in every game this season and won't be breaking that streak in Week 9. With Cory James and Marquel Lee returning from knee injuries, the rookie will slide back into a reserve/special teams role.
Morrow is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins due to an ankle injury.
The undrafted rookie linebacker has suited up in every game this season for the Raiders, logging 25 tackles and two pass breakups. Morrow should suit up if the ankle issue isn't too limiting by the time kickoff approaches, but he'll likely be ticketed for a backup role.
