Alfred Morris said the injury that caused him to leave the Carolina game early in the second quarter was a stinger, and that “they blew it out of proportion on TV.”
Morris missed just five plays because of injury in the 21-13 loss on Nov. 4 and left the game on his own, concerned staying in would lead to a mistake.
A stinger is a spine injury where nerves leading to an arm are stretched or compressed, leading to a temporary loss of sensation. He also left the Redskins’ game against Minnesota on Oct. 14 with a stinger, though the numbness was in his left arm. His right arm was the one affected against Carolina.
