Joshua Morgan, who led the Washington Redskins with 48 receptions last season but has seen his playing time steadily decrease this year, was inactive for Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Morgan, who has 11 catches for 124 yards this season, has gradually been phased out of the offense as wide receiver Leonard Hankerson has taken over as the top Z receiver.
But while Morgan was frustrated after the game — he told The Times he was asked not to speak to reporters — he may have a chance to play again soon.
That’s because Hankerson was injured early in the second quarter and the initial diagnosis, according to Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, was a possible injured lateral collateral ligament in his left knee.
Darrel Young’s 62-yard catch-and-run TD kick-started the Redskins’ offense after it was shut out for three quarters.
