Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said he wants RB Alfred Morris to become a better receiver. He thinks he can catch 20-25 balls if he improves.
Huddle Up: If Morris is able to add receiving (and pass blocking) skills he'll be able to stay on the field in the Redskins' new offense. The alternative is Gruden using Roy Helu, who has already demonstrated his chops as a receiver.

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (ribs) was taken to the locker room during the third quarter of the Week 4 game against the Oakland Raiders. The initial diagnosis was a rib contusion, but he will obviously undergo further testing.
Huddle Up: Hopefully it's nothing serious for Morris, but Roy Helu becomes a huge pickup if Morris is going to miss any time.

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris lost a fumble on his first carry of the season in the Week 1 game Monday, Sept. 9, against the Philadelphia Eagles. He also mishandled a pitch from QB Robert Griffin III on the sixth play of the game which led to a safety. Morris was able to recover somewhat, finishing with 12 carries for 45 yards and a touchdown, and he added a nine-yard reception.
Huddle Up: Many were counting on a big night from Morris going up against a suspect Philly defense, but the Skins' early turnover problems and expanding deficit forced the team to the air more than it wanted to and short-circuited any plans for a big Morris workload.

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris has been working to improve his pass protection skills during training camp.
Huddle Up: Anything Morris can do to stay on the field on third downs is a positive development, as a healthy Roy Helu lurks to take away snaps on passing downs.

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris said he is feeling more comfortable entering this season than he was last season. 'Last year, I was going in there like a lost little puppy,' Morris said. 'This year, having had that experience and gaining that knowledge of last year, I'm a lot more confident and more comfortable. The more comfortable you get with it, the better you can go out there and do it. It eliminates the thinking process. You can go out there and have some fun.'
Huddle Up: A more-comfortable Morris is a scary thought after he finished second in the league with 1,613 rushing yards as a rookie. Even if RGIII makes it back for Week 1, Morris is going to have a hard time approaching his 2012 rushing total, but he has ample room to improve as a pass-catcher after hauling in only 11 receptions for 77 yards a year ago.
