Tailback Alfred Morris said Monday that the bruised ribs he suffered during the Washington Redskins’ victory Sunday at Oakland were sore but he does not regard the injury as serious.
Morris said the injury was “fine” and added: “I mean, a little tender still but nothing serious so I’m all good.”
According to Morris, X-rays showed no breaks. He said he was hurt earlier during the game before coming out for good and being replaced by backup Roy Helu Jr.
The Skins have a bye this week so the extra time off will be just want Morris needs - he looks like a good bet for Week 6. Owners should still make it a priority to pickup Helu as a handcuff on this week's waiver wire, though.
