The Redskins held rookie RB Alfred Morris out of their preseason finale against the Buccaneers on Wednesday night.
While the Shanahans' backfield is much too difficult to predict with any hint of certainty, we might take Morris' absence as a sign that the Skins want to keep him healthy for a big Week 1 role against New Orleans. Evan Royster and Roy Helu carried the mail against the Bucs. Morris is on track to play on early downs in the opener, with Tim Hightower replacing him on third downs.
