Redskins head coach Jay Gruden suggested that the workload split between Morris and Matt Jones will largely depend on game flow in Sunday's opener against the Dolphins, reports. "A lot depends on how the game goes," Gruden said. "We're going to work Matt in there, obviously. Alfred's still the bell cow. We want to keep him fresh for 16 games. If he gets 12-20 carries, Matt Jones gets eight to 10, I don't know how that's going to work or play out."

Coach Jay Gruden noted after Washington selected Matt Jones in the third round of the NFL draft that Morris remains Washington's lead back, reports.

Jones bolsters the team's backfield depth following the free agent departure of Roy Helu, but given that he is a big physical back, he profiles more as a direct backup (who can occasionally spell Morris) than a change-of-pace type. "Alfred won't be affected," Gruden noted with regard to the presence of Jones. "Alfred's still the running back here. He's had three great seasons and that won't change. But to add another guy that can come in here and pound the rock a little bit doesn't hurt anything. It'll help Alfred in that regard, taking some carries off him. For the most part Alfred will be getting the bulk of the carries and Matt will get some too, obviously."

Morris had 12 carries for 43 rushing yards and two catches on three targets for 19 receiving yards during Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

Morris had already clinched his third-consecutive 1,000-yard season, but his yards-per-carry average has dropped in each of his three seasons. He's starting to get a little more involved in the passing game, catching 17 passes on 26 targets for 155 receiving yards this season, though he doesn't provide a huge bump in PPR leagues. He has one year left on his rookie contract, and he's got a little leverage as the only true workhorse back on the roster.

Morris had 21 carries for 83 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-24 win over the Eagles.

After a three-game scoring drought, Morris finally found his way to paydirt on a 28-yard run in the first quarter in which he shrugged off multiple tackle attempts. Of course, people starting Morris in a fantasy championship game were likely shaking their fists at television screens across the country when Darrel Young vultured two one-yard rushing touchdowns in the third quarter.

Morris wasn't listed on Washington's injury report Wednesday.

Morris reportedly sustained a minor groin injury during Sunday's loss to the Giants, but the ailment wasn't serious enough to warrant a mention following the first practice of the week. On Saturday, he'll be free to take aim at an Eagles defense that has given up merely 3.5 YPC to running backs in the past three games, which has been offset by seven RB touchdowns on the ground in the past eight contests.
