Mor­gan benched

The Washington Times Daily - - Sports -

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.
