As sure as Samson found strength in his hair, Alfred Morris and the Redskins ground game needed his car.
Morris proudly owns a 1991 Mazda 626 that teammates nicknamed Bentley when he joined the Washington Redskins last year when he rushed for over 1,600 yards. Mazda offered to refurbish the car, so Morris has been without it since summer.
Morris the Redskins leading rusher yards, scores (3 TDs) and rushing efficiency (5.2 YPA). With the Redskins' depressing 1-4 start, it feels like his game is off. But things are rounding into shape.
The Redskins were the NFL's leading rushing team last year. The teams top three rushers this year, Morris, Robert Griffin III and Roy Helu, Jr., are each averaging over four yards per attempt. That is bound to have a telling effect as the season goes on.
Meanwhile, Bentley's return is boost for a team in need of one. Start Morris on all your fantasy teams. Sampson has got his hair back.
