Maurice Morris RB DET Dec 05 '11
Maurice Morris rushed 12 times for 28 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions, adding five catches for 47 yards and a touchdown.
A typically plodding night for Morris on the ground, who was called on to handle the Lions' rushing load after Kevin Smith aggravated his ankle injury early in the second half. The solid receiving performance was his second straight, however, building on his nine-catch, 81-yard effort against the Packers on Thanksgiving. With Smith initially sounding unlikely to suit up in Week 14, Morris is worth a flier if you're hurting at running back.
