Alfred Morris – The Redskins Starting Running Back?

Mike Shanahan must love soap opera shows like “As the World Turns”, because after Clinton Portis was traded away in Denver, he’s turned his running games into as much over the years.

Roy Helu and Evan Royster had their moments at the end of last year, and it appeared the two would duke it out for the starting role this summer. Not so fast, as Shanahan re-signed Tim Hightower who suffered an ACL tear in the middle of last season.

Then Shanahan promptly re-signed Hightower and brought in a couple on the cheap rookie tail backs to compete.

Opening camp, it was Royster running with the first team and we later found out Helu was dealing with tendonitis in his Achilles.

While Helu finally found his way back on the practice field last week to do some light work, Royster went down with a knee injury.

Enter rookie Alfred Morris who has quietly had a good off-season and while he looked uneventful against the Bears, Morris ran for over 100 yards and a score against the Colts, this weekend.

After the game Shanahan told the media Morris could be the Redskins starting running back week one.

Because of injuries to Helu, Royster this could be a possibility. Hightower worked in third-down  passing situations against the Colts and that’s probably going to be his role early on, because he’s a terrific pass protector.

With Robert Griffin under center defenses will now have to respect the quarterbacks’ ability to run the football, basically making life a little easier on the running backs, because they will get one less defender focused on them.

Morris won’t blow you away with big plays but in Shanahan’s zone-blocking scheme, we’ve seen less than impressive tailbacks go off for sound production in this offense.

Long story short, Morris is worth a look in the later rounds of your draft for depth and possibly a flex start if you should need help early. But hey, who knows maybe Shanahan has another runner in mind, and is just throwing us off with Morris until game time, or the next episode if you will. Oh what fun!
