Alfred Morris injury update: Rib injury won't cost him any game, safe to put back in fantasy lineups

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Alfred Morris (ribs) is probable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. We break down the fantasy implications.

Redskins running back Alfred Morris (ribs) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He put in a full week of practice and will give it a go against the divisional opponent.

The bye week certainly helped Morris last week, and he won't miss any games. The full week of practice is really all the confidence you'd need to assume he'll resume a full workload.  The second-year back hasn't had a signature game yet, but his 5.3 yards per carry so far this year suggest a big game is on the way. The Cowboys haven't been too stout on D, so it could come this week.

If Morris can't get a full allotment, the team could call upon Roy Helu to get a few extra snaps. He's been terrific in the passing game and has been much better in pass protection.

Fantasy impact: You can go ahead and put ALF in your lineup. The Skins should be able to cure their ailments on offense in what could be a high-scoring game on Sunday Night Football. Helu is still a nice handcuff, though.
