ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Alfred Morris would be quite the rookie sensation story - if he weren't playing on the same team as Robert Griffin III.
The Washington Redskins sixth-round draft pick from Florida Atlantic is tied for third in the NFL with 1,106 yards rushing. He and Griffin have combined to produce the top running attack in the league.
Morris says he's not a fan of the limelight and doesn't mind being in Griffin's shadow. He says he's looking forward to growing with Griffin as a teammate and that he hopes ``it's the beginning of a beautiful relationship.''
The Rebdskins host the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
