Alfred Morris is going to be Pro Bowl.
Last year he was snubbed after being second in the NFL with a Redskins record 1,613 rushing yards. This year he was not named to the original roster despite being fourth in the league with 1,245 yards on the ground.
But he was named an alternate and that gave him a chance. He will get the roster spot that will be vacated by either Frank Gore of the 49ers or Seattle’s Marshawn Lynch when one of their teams qualifies for the Super Bowl on Sunday.
The team posted an Instagram video of Morris talking about his selection. Aloha, Redskins fans,” Morris said. “Just found out I’m going to Hawaii. I appreciate all the support. Mahalo.”
The game will be played on Sunday, January 26 in Honolulu. Trent Williams will also represent the Redskins in the game.
