Alfred Morris likely to start for Redskins

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
