Draft Scout Alfred Morris News
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.
12/25/13 - -- RB Alfred Morris needs to run for one TD on Sunday at the New York Giants to move into a tie for 10th in franchise history after just two seasons.
12/23/13 - -- RB Alfred Morris, with 88 yards against Dallas, passed Heisman Trophy winners Eddie George and Billy Sims and Hall of Famer Barry Sanders for the ninth-most rushing yards by a player in his first two seasons (2,826).
