Draft Scout Alfred Morris News
10/29/14 - RB Alfred Morris had averaged just 2.8 yards per carry during his previous three games so when the 2013 Pro Bowl running back managed just 11 yards on five carries when the Redskins trailed the Cowboys 7-3 at halftime on Monday, it seemed like it was going to be another long night for Washington's ground game.
Instead, Morris powered for 62 yards on 13 carries the rest of the way, including a 29-yard jaunt and a touchdown, in helping the Redskins rally for a 20-17 overtime upset of the NFC East leaders.
Morris, whose 513 yards and 3.9 yard average at midseason are well below the 722 (half of his season average of 1,444) and 4.8 figures of his first two years, said nothing really changed at halftime other than his choice to stop thinking so much about what he was doing and just play football.
10/12/14 - RB Alfred Morris was held to 41 yards on 13 carries. "I have no clue, honestly," Morris said. "We're nitpicking. We're trying (to point out) the smallest of things, just trying to work on it in practice and get it to translate in the game. We had little flashes here and there, and we just can't keep it going. I really don't know why, but we have to figure it out."
09/15/14 - RB Alfred Morris got off to a slow start, but finished with 85 yards on 22 carries including a pair of 1-yard touchdowns to reach the 3,000-yard mark in just 34 career games, faster than anyone on Redskins history.
09/08/14 - RB Alfred Morris gained his usual 91 yards against the Texans, giving the third-year standout 2,979 yards in 33 regular-season games. If Morris -- whose 2,888 yards in 2012-13 were second in the NFL to the 3,363 of Minnesota's Adrian Peterson -- runs for 1,107 yards the rest of the season, he'll zoom from 11th to fifth among Washington's career rushing leaders, trailing only Hall of Famer John Riggins, Clinton Portis, 1972 MVP Larry Brown and Stephen Davis.
Of course, Morris would gladly have traded some of his 91 yards on 14 carries for a victory. He failed to grab the ball from falling quarterback Robert Griffin III on a third quarter fumble and escaped his own turnover when he was ruled down on the play that the ball came out just before fullback Darrel Young scored Washington's only touchdown.
"The team that makes the least amount of mistakes is the team that wins," Morris said. "You can't have those two fumbles today and we almost had a third with me. (When Robert tripped), I tried to come back and get the ball, we missed (connecting), tried to jump on it. For some reason those balls get slippery in piles like that."
12/30/13 - RB Alfred Morris' second year wasn't as outstanding as his smashing debut. Morris ran for 1,275 yards but he was held in check in five of last six games despite running behind the same offensive line as ever. It didn't help that FB Darrel Young missed three of those games, but that slump was worrisome.
