Washington Redskins wide receiver Josh Morgan is clearly frustrated with his diminished role in the offense. Earlier in the week he 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.”
Morgan was declared inactive for Sunday’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and did not dress. After the game when Morgan was leaving the locker room he was asked about his demotion, and he said head coach Mike Shanahan had given him a gag order.
“Coach said I can’t talk. Coach said I can’t play football and I can’t talk,” Morgan said, via the Washington Post.
Earlier in the week Morgan said he didn’t think it had to do with a pair of drops early in the season. I think we can all safely assume this weekend’s benching had to do with the comments made during the week, Morgan wasn’t battling any kind of injury.
