Alfred Morris on starting: 'I've been going through a lot these last years'

Dallas Cowboys reserve-turned-starting running back Alfred Morris reflected on his past Wednesday while speaking to reporters. 

Morris will likely make his first start of 2017 this Sunday in the wake of Ezekiel Elliott's looming six-game suspension.

Some of his comments were intriguing, particularly how he had "gone through a lot these last two and a half years." Morris joined Dallas after a four-year stint as a starting All-Pro and Pro Bowl running back in Washington, only to take a back seat to the star Elliott. 

Through his "comfortable is never doing anything great in this life," it's clear that Morris hasn't been living the easy life in Dallas. But his mindset reflects a working-mentality, which is something Cowboys fans will want with him taking handoffs. 

Morris has rushed for 5,043 yards and 31 career touchdowns over six seasons. Morris has 13 carries for 105 yards in five games this season while fullback Rod Smith has 10 carries for 69 yards. Veteran Darren McFadden has not played at all this year. All three figure to get work in Elliott's absence.
