Tailback Alfred Morris said Monday that the bruised ribs he suffered during the Washington Redskins’ victory Sunday at Oakland were sore but he does not regard the injury as serious. Morris said the injury was “fine” and added: “I mean a little tender still but nothing serious so I’m all good.” According to Morris X-rays showed no breaks. He said he was hurt earlier during the game before coming out for good and being replaced by backup Roy Helu Jr. “It was a little tender before at the start of the game” Morris said. “But it wasn’t nothing that I felt like would take me out of the game so I was like you know whatever. I feel like when I fell on that play it kind of was like I said icing on the cake. I had to come out. I said ‘Yeah this isn’t something I’m gonna walk off.’ ” Morris aggravated the injury when being hit later in the game. “What happened was after that last run when I hit the ground somebody landed on me and kind of like arched my body in a weird way” he said. “It bruised my ribs in doing it. So it’s kind of weird but it happened.” Morris said he’s not certain how long his recovery will take but he feels fortunate that the Redskins now are on their bye week. They next play Oct. 13 at Dallas. “It definitely helps out [to] give me a little extra time to recover and get ready for the next opponent” Morris said. “So even though our bye week is early — nobody likes the early bye week. At the same time for me it’s perfect timing.”
