Apparently the Washington Redskins want us to forget everything that was reported over the last week. Alfred Morris will most likely be the starter week one for the Redskins. In case you are counting, over the last seven days the Redskins have placed Evan Royster at the top of their first official depth chart and then released a statement saying the team would go with the hot hand at running back.

Now, it looks as though Alfred Morris will be the team’s starter for week one.

The sixth-round pick out of Florida Atlantic is likely to start against the Saints on Sunday, according to a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN. The report comes from a conversation with a team official and is careful to stress that this is just an expectation. Given Shanahan’s history with running backs, it’s best to keep depth charts at the position in pencil for as long as possible.

Morris had an impressive outing against the Colts in the preseason and looked good during practices as well.

Perhaps the only way we will find out who is starting for the Redskins is to watch their week one game against the New Orleans Saints





One Response to Alfred Morris likely to start for Redskins

  • Jeffrey Bowick says:

    Morris is the starter and is a replica of Terrel Davis in size and Mike Anderson in style, in case you have forgotten the two were denver broncos starters at the highest level, MVP, 2000 yard seasona and rushing titles. Shannahan has done it again and set up the Skins to meet the Broncos in the Super Bowl. Mike has the line, the quarterback and finally a running back, a third reciever is all they need for a deadly combination. Shannahan has done it again selected yet a high unlikely MVP running back, watch out NFL here comes the skins.
