Dallas RB Alfred Morris is competing with Darren McFadden, who has missed the first two preseason games as he recovers from a broken elbow, and rookie Darius Jackson for the backup job behind first-round pick Ezekiel Elliott.
“He was more of a first- and second-down back in Washington,” coach Jason Garrett said, “so we’re giving him an opportunity to do some other things here. He’s a good football player and a pro. He’s working hard and learning every day.”
The story said the he’s running well enough to get it, but the Cowboys want him to be a better receiver and blocker. He caught a screen pass for a short gain and dropped another pass in the flat and pass catching was never something he excelled at with the Skins. He’s worked hard to improve as a blocker, the story said.

Alfred Morris moves from Washington to Dallas where he hopes he will get an opportunity to revive his career. Morris did not miss a start in his four-year career with Dallas and rushed for over 1,000 yards the first three years.
However, the last two years his numbers starting spiraling downward and last year's were the worst of his career. Morris will probably only get that chance if Elliot bombs or gets hurt which would move him up the depth chart.
2016 Bottom Line
It's going to take lot for Morris to get on the field with a stud rookie and a reliable veteran in front of him. He is late-round depth at best, but probably should not be on your draft radar.
