Josh Morgan expected to start for Washington Redskins


Just a week after taking a not-so-subtle shot at head coach Mike Shanahan, wide receiver Josh Morgan is expected to draw the start on Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers – this according to ESPN.

Morgan, who was a healthy scratch from Sunday’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles told the media after the game that he was not allowed to speak to them and that he wasn’t good enough to play.

That changed though after Leonard Hankerson, who took Morgan’s role went down with a nasty LCL injury. Now, in need of help, the Redskins will turn to the struggling Morgan when they host San Francisco on Monday Night Football:

Morgan will return to the starting lineup, one game after being inactive for the first time in his one-plus years in Washington. Morgan has not been productive this season, with just 11 catches. He opened the season as the starter, but has only made two starts.

Aldrick Robinson is expected to split some snaps with Morgan, despite the start.
