ASHBURN – Alfred Morris said Wednesday his bruised ribs should not prevent him from playing in the Redskins’ road game against the Cowboys on Sunday.
“I mean, I practiced Monday with no limitations, so all was well for me,” the running back said. “I’ve still got some remnants of it, but nothing that will hinder me out there playing, so I’m not worried about.”
Morris injured his ribs in the Redskins’ 24-14 victory over the Raiders on Sept. 29, leaving the game with four minutes left in the third quarter.
To prevent aggravating his ribs, Morris will wear thicker pads during practice all week.
Morris has carried the ball 56 times this season for 296 yards – an average of 5.3 yards a carry – and two touchdowns.
