Maurice Morris to fill RB Smith's role

Detroit Free Press - [Full Article]

Now that Lions running back Kevin Smith (knee) is on injured reserve, backup Maurice Morris steps into the starting role. He has had only 42 carries this season -- only four over the past three games.

"I'd like to see Maurice be able to get those carries," offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said. "He hasn't had a lot of carries this year, mostly as that second role. He basically gets everything that Kevin was getting."
