Another good read on Alfred!
RB Alfred Morris with a team-high 54 yards on 15 carries in Redskins' 7-6 victory over Buffalo.
He got almost a 1000 yards with lousy blocking it will be nice to see him
get lots of yards in the nfl with good blocking,
Well he did not get great blocking last night. Got one carry in 1st half and played with 2's and 3's all game (including qb's who were pretty much horrible). He might of felt right at home! Ha Ha!

Rookie sizzle: RB Alfred Morris isn't vying for the starting job at this point. But he looked good in his NFL debut, rushing for 54 yards on 15 carries. Though his long was only six yards, Morris was always falling forward for extra yards. He did not lose any yards on his runs. He made the most of mediocre blocking.
As bizarre at it seems , his experience in making yardage with FAUs crappy blocking may help him a lot with the redskins.

REALLY great interview, very laid back and honest! Go Alfred!
cool blurb on Alfred from espn's John Clayton on the skins website.
Q: Who are a few of your under-the-radar Redskins to watch right now?
Clayton: "I wanted to take a look and see where it was at the running back position, and I was very much intrigued by Alfred Morris. It looks like there’s some type of potential there; Morris broke a couple nice runs [in camp].
I don't have all the facts and the dust is still settling,but it seems we have some walk ons that can and will provide some needed depth at some...
How are the proposed walk ons looking at this time?
Rusty Smith released by Calgary on Sunday.
Hopes he can catch on with another CFL team or get an invite to an NFL team training camp. We hope so too!
Former Owl Rusty Smith of the CFL Calgary Stampeders completed a 26 yard pass to set up the winning field goal in a preseason game against Winnipeg...
Lestar Jean was waived by the Minnesota Vikings...I believe he is injured. Could have played a role in it.
