Redskins President Bruce Allen suggested that Morris won't be offered a new contract before the free agency period begins, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. “He’s been incredibly productive for us,” Allen said. “Free agency is going to be a great test for him. If he gets a great contract [elsewhere], we’re going to applaud him. If not, we’re going to see what happens with us.”

Morris carried 11 times for just 24 yards and scored his first touchdown of the season in Sunday's win over the Bears. He failed to haul in his only passing target.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Though he has ceded a significant amount of work to rookie Matt Jones in recent weeks, Morris was able to break his touchdown duck with a one-yard plunge in the first quarter. Morris' general lack of involvement in the passing game often sees him on the bench when the Redskins fall behind, but the fact that Jones has seen the majority of the carries in a pair of close games the last two weeks doesn't bode well for Morris' fantasy value moving forward. The two will likely share carries once again next week, but neither back is likely to break out against a stout Bills run defense.
Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said Morris is still the team's lead back, ESPN's John Keim reports.

Morris (ribs) is listed as active Sunday versus the Giants, Brian McNally of 106.7 The Fan DC reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bruised ribs didn't hinder Morris' ability to practice this week, but it remains to be seen if he'll be able to bounce back from a negligible Week 11 performance. In addition to the injury, the presence of Matt Jones and Chris Thompson could combine to inhibit Morris' snap count, though the veteran could make inroads against a Giants defense that has allowed 4.2 YPC to running backs in 2015.
Morris (ribs) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

A full practice participant throughout the week, Morris is expected to play through the rib injury that knocked him out of a Week 11 loss to the Panthers. There's some chance the pain will flare up again during Sunday's game, but the bigger issue is that he's part of a three-man committee in a matchup that should favor the Washington passing game.
Morris (rib) practiced fully Wednesday, Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

In Week 10, Morris suffered a rib injury but played through the pain, totaling 15 rushes for 92 yards and three receptions for 14 yards. He attempted to do the same Sunday at Carolina, but his early aggravation resulted in no production whatsoever. Head coach Jay Gruden confirmed the nature of the ailment Wednesday, calling it a bruised rib, with no fractures or cartilage damage, according to Brian McNally of 106.7 the Fan DC. As a result, Morris' availability for Sunday's game versus the Giants isn't really in question, but his workload could be curtailed if he's unable to handle the discomfort.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

While Morris turned in an impressive 2013, finishing fourth in the NFL in rush yardage, his sophomore campaign fell well short of the 100-yards-per-game benchmark he set for himself as a rookie. Blame for this statistical decline can largely be laid on a reduced carry total – particularly in the red zone – and Robert Griffin III's injury issues. While new coach Jay Gruden seems less inclined than Mike Shanahan to use the read option that's been a major factor in Morris's success, it could be a blessing in disguise for him. While some pundits may be inclined to downgrade Morris on that news, combined with his fullback-like 4.63 40 time, the 5-10, 218-pound bowling ball of a back is a tremendous downhill runner, a guy who can just put his shoulder down and plow for solid yardage on just about every play. That said, Morris is not a truly dynamic back – he doesn't break tackles at a terribly high rate and he's a near-total non-factor in the passing game, having totaled 20 receptions in two seasons. Backup and third-down man Roy Helu was generally more responsible for catching the ball out of the backfield last year, and that projects to continue this season.

2013

A sixth-round pick, Morris proved to be the steal of the 2012 NFL Draft, as he was an ideal fit for Washington's read-option attack. At 5-9, 219, Morris isn't fast, but he provides a powerful downhill style that has just enough wiggle and burst to get him through arm tacklers and into the second and third levels. The threat of Robert Griffin's accurate arm and blazing speed prevented defenses from keying on Morris, opening running lanes and allowing the bullish back to rack up the second-most rushing yards and touchdowns in the league. With 14 games of at least 75 yards on the ground and seven 100-yard outings, he was one of the most consistent fantasy commodities, too. Despite his nose for the end zone (he scored on 41 percent of his carries inside the 10, 2nd ) and impressive durability (he barely sniffed the injury report despite 335 carries), Morris might not be as safe a pick as he appears. The concern for Morris is the health of Griffin, who is attempting to return from a torn ACL by Week 1. If Griffin is unavailable to keep defenses guessing or is not the same rushing threat he was as a rookie, Morris could see running lanes shrink while becoming a greater focus of the opposition. Given his lack of speed, that's a sizable risk considering his likely cost.

2012

Rookie running back drafted in the 6th round. He will compete with Tim Hightower, Roy Helu, and Evan Royster. He is not expected to see much playing time early on and would need several injuries to be relevant.
