Don’t Forget About Running Back Alfred Morris

    When former joined the Cowboys during , many slotted him as the day one starter right off the bat.

    But once was selected fourth overall just a little over two months later, Morris sort of became the forgotten back.

    With all of the hype and expectations circling around the back, those around the Cowboys even began to question just how many plays a game Morris would see. Then, rookie began to emerge and gain traction with the fans, pushing Morris even further onto the back burner.

    But as Elliott missed more and more time, Alfred Morris made his presence known. Now, as has come to an end, we have time to reflect on just how good Morris has been.

    The staff writers over at put together their list of the top-10 performers during camp, slotting Alfred Morris at 4.

    And we wondered how many reps might get. Instead, he took nearly every first-team snap of camp with Elliott getting banged up and the other two veteran backs missing every practice. Morris not only showed the durability he’s displayed the first four years in the league, but his attitude is so infectious. He’s actually waiting for the other guys to return so in his words, “can get better.”

    As the staff writers mentioned, Morris's ability to get through all of camp with virtually no is commendable. With the of and the hamstring troubles of Elliott, Morris' durability will be a necessity.

    His veteran experience and attitude also bring a lot to the roster. His work ethic has constantly been complimented this summer, and it should help the younger backs come along in their own development.

    Zeke is . We all know that. But in order for the Cowboys to be as successful as we want them to be,  Alfred Morris is going to need to take quality carries in every game. And so far, things are looking good for him.
