Redskins | Joshua Morgan could return to starting lineup

Tue, 19 Nov 2013 11:10:38 -0800

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said WR Joshua Morgan, who was inactive in favor of WR Nick X. Williams as a punt returner in Week 11, could return to the starting lineup if WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) needs surgery to fix a torn lateral collateral ligament in his knee. "I've got a lot of belief in Josh Morgan," Shanahan said. "I have a lot of confidence in Josh that he'll come back strong and help us this week as a receiver. But I explained to him what he needs to do in both special teams and wide receiver to get to a level that I think he can get to. I think he has the ability to be a Pro Bowl player and I want to get that out of him." Williams muffed a punt and failed to field another against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Morgan would be, at best, a flex player in deeper leagues if Hankerson is out for extended time.

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 10:35:24 -0700

Washington Redskins WRs Pierre Garcon, Joshua Morgan, Santana Moss, Leonard Hankerson and Aldrick Robinson have appeared to lock up spots on the final roster.
