Redskins WR Josh Morgan not sure why his role is small


The Washington Redskins had a dominant run game last year. Wide receiver Josh Morgan let the team in receptions with 48. That might be a small amount on another team, but it was a team high for the Redskins. This year he hasn’t been getting as many opportunities. Through nine games this season, Morgan has 11 receptions.

Morgan was asked if he had an idea why his role was diminished.

“No sir, none at all,” he said, via CSN Washington. “I don’t even really try to worry about it anymore.”

Morgan added: “I know I didn’t do anything to lose my job. I come out here and work just as hard, if not harder, than anyone out here. I try to keep negative thoughts out my head. I just come out and play for my teammates, my family and for the love of the game, as I always do.”

He doesn’t think it has to do with a pair of drops early in the season.

“Not really,” Morgan said, asked if he recalls a specific drop or missed assignment that could have led to the decline. “It’s like tit for tat. You can say, oh, I dropped this pass, I dropped that pass. But then you could point to every other receiver on this roster and say the same thing. Or every tight end on this roster and say the same thing. …So, no, there’s no particular reason or indication or anything.”

It probably has to do with a healthier team. Pierre Garcon only played in 10 games last season and fought through injuries.
