The Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris has battled through some pain from his bruised ribs. Morris said he is good to go and will play against the Cowboys on Sunday night.
“All is well with me,” Morris said, via CSN Washington.
“There are some remnants of it,” Morris continued. “But it’s nothing serious, nothing that will hinder me out there playing, so I’m not worried about it.”
Morris also said he is considering different types of torso padding to protect his ribs. Though he added that he isn’t a fan of it.
“It’s annoying,” Morris said. “I really don’t want to do anything. But it’s a precaution. They want me to do it, so I’ve been trying different padding and stuff.”
Morris has carried the ball 56 times for 296 yards this season. His career best game came against the Dallas Cowboys in week 17 last season. With a playoff berth on the line he stepped up to the plate, carried the ball 33 times for 200 yards and three touchdowns.
