Redskins' Alfred Morris to start in Monday's game

A year ago, you couldn't pick Alfred Morris out of a crowd.

"Last year everybody didn't think twice about it. 'who's this guy? London! Keep it moving.'"

Now, the crowd surrounds him. The sixth round pick went from relative unknown, to a franchise record-breaking running back who rushed for more than 1600 yards last season.

"I've always been the underdog," Morris said. "A lot of people always fly on the radar, and I just go in and do my job. I'm glad I get to come back another year."

Morris will be the starting running back Monday night when the Redskins host the Philadelphia Eagles at Fed Ex Field.
