Only two backs totaled more than 100 yards last season for the Redskins, but that’s all they needed to rank first in the NFL in rushing. Alfred Morris led the way with 1,613 yards on 335 carries, while Robert Griffin III ran the ball 120 times for 815 yards. Morris ranked 11th in elusive rating and 14th in breakaway percentage, per Pro Football Focus. Griffin really opened up holes for Morris in the Redskins offense, especially when Washington ran the read option. If Morris goes down, the Redskins could turn to Roy Helu, Evan Royster, Chris Thompson, Keiland Williams, Tristan Davis, Jawan Jamison and fullbacks Darrel Young or Eric Kettani.
