Morris (knee) is active Thursday against the Giants, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Morris, who practiced in full all week, is set to handle his typical 20-plus carries per outing. Even if the yards pile up slowly but surely, his night should end with a helpful sum against a Giants run defense that gives up 4.2 yards per pop to opposing running backs.

Morris (knee) is listed as probable for Thursday's game versus the Giants.

With full practices under his belt this week, there's little worry regarding Morris' ability to take the field on a short week after suffering a minor knee injury this past Sunday. The fact that the Giants allow 4.2 YPC to opposing backs bodes well for the workhorse in Week 4.

Morris was briefly examined for a knee injury during Sunday's game against the Eagles, but was ultimately able to return to action and finish with 77 yards on 23 carries. Although the Redskins didn't practice Monday, Morris would have been listed as a full participant, which matches his designation from Tuesday's session.

The minor knee injury suffered by Morris on Sunday don't stop him from putting together 23 carries for 77 yards, which marked his worst performance from a fantasy perspective this season. He's averaging a shade under 20 carries per game this season, which should bode well against a Giants run defense that has allowed 4.2 YPC to opposing running backs this season.

The Redskins put up big points Sunday but Morris was unfortunately not part of any of them, while he also watched Roy Helu bang home a one-yard touchdown with less than five minutes left in the game. Quarterback Kirk Cousins threw for 427 yards and three touchdowns, as the Eagles did a solid job of limiting Morris to only 3.3 yards per carry. Up next is a Thursday game against the Giants, who allowed 119 yards to the Texans without Arian Foster in Week 3.

Morris had 22 carries for 85 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 41-10 win over the Jaguars.

With quarterback Robert Griffin knocked out of the game in the first quarter with an ankle injury and wide receiver DeSean Jackson forced out later with a shoulder injury, the Redskins relied heavily on Morris to grind out a victory. Roy Hely also suffered an injury Sunday, and if he is forced to miss any time, Morris could grab even more carries, with Silas Redd also likely to see an uptick in usage.

Morris had 14 carries for 91 yards in Sunday's loss at Houston. As usually is the case, Morris was not targeted in the passing game.

Morris played well against a tough defense, but he had a one-yard touchdown stole away from him by fullback Darrel Young. Morris needs to score touchdowns for his fantasy owners, because he's certainly not going to contribute in the passing game. He should have an easier time in Week 2, facing Jacksonville at home.

Morris carried the ball 11 times for a total of 29 yards in Monday's exhibition game against the Browns.

Morris didn't have the greatest average yardage on his carries, which was likely due in part to a stout Browns rushing defense. He's still the clear-cut favorite to be the No. 1 back in Washington, so don't look too closely into these preseason numbers. The No. 2 back, Roy Helu, gained just eight yards on three carries, adding one catch for seven yards.

Morris has spent more time improving his receiving skills during training camp, the Washington Post reports. He has 20 catches over his first two years and looks to become a more integral part in the passing attack.

This may led to Morris seeing more time in passing situations. It appears running backs may be more involved in the passing attack than in past years.
