Morris Named NFL Week 7 Rookie Of Week

Posted Oct 26, 2012

For the fourth time in seven weeks, fans have selected a Redskin as the NFL’s top rookie, with RB Alfred Morris collecting the honors for Week 7.

For the fourth time in seven weeks, the fans have selected a Redskins player as the NFL’s top rookie performer of the week, with running back Alfred Morris collecting the honors for Week 7.

Morris rushed for a career-high 120 yards on 22 carries in the Redskins’ 27-23 loss to the New York Giants.  Morris set the tone for the team’s 248 rushing yards in the game, the most since the team rushed for 296 yards against the New York Jets on Nov. 4, 2007.

He is currently ranked second in the NFL  with 658 total rushing yards, one yard behind Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster of the Houston Texans.

Morris is the leading rusher in the Redskins top-ranked rushing attack, now averaging 177.7 yards per game on the ground.

The Redskins have now rushed for 1,244 yards this season, the most the team has ever rushed for in the first seven games of a season since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. The previous high was 1,235, set by the 1984 team.

With his fan vote selection this week, Morris joins quarterback Robert Griffin III as a recipient of the award, after Griffin III was selected for Weeks 1, 4 and 6.

The other finalists this week were linebacker Dont’a Hightower of the New England Patriots, quarterback Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts, running back Doug Martin of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and safety Harrison Smith of the Minnesota Vikings.

After the regular season, five players will be nominated for NFL Rookie of the Year honors.  Fans can vote for the winner on NFL.com/rookies throughout the month of January. 

The NFL Rookie of the Year will be announced at the second annual “NFL Honors” awards show in New Orleans on Saturday, February 2, the night before Super Bowl XLVII.
