Alfred Morris had an auspicious start to the game as even though statistically the fumble in the first quarter counted against RGIII it was Morris who mishandled a good pitch from the quarterback.  And Morris also struggled to get much going on the ground as he had only 29 yards on 11 carries.  But the more Morris touches the ball the better he runs so as long as he handles the ball properly then all is well.

Roy Helu also struggled against the Browns tough defensive front so Morris wasn’t alone.  But the Redskins backup running backs made up for it later in the game.  Evan Royster got things going with a nice catch and a TD run to give the Redskins the lead at halftime.  And rookie Silas Redd had another good performance, running hard and getting extra yards with second and third effort.

Rookie Lache Seastrunk again led the team in rushing for the second consecutive game with 7 carries for 35 yards.

Running backs grade - C+
