49ers RB Alfred Morris (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Chargers. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited again on Friday. We'll look for updates on his status, but Niners-Chargers doesn't start until 4:25 pm ET on Sunday.

49ers RB Alfred Morris admits that he's still learning the playbook. He has experience with HC Kyle Shanahan, but the offense has changed since their time together in Washington. Morris signed with the 'Niners just 3 weeks ago. “It’s not second nature yet, and that bothers me,” Morris said. “When you think, you’re not playing as fast. Right now, I’m still learning and getting that confidence. But, I think I’ll get to a place where I can carry a heavy load.” We're expecting Morris and Matt Breida to share backfield duties in Week 1 vs. Minnesota. Morris looks like the better non-PPR play, with Breida the better bet in PPR.

The 49ers have signed RB Alfred Morris. He'll provide some insurance after recent injuries to RBs Jerick McKinnon (calf) and Matt Breida (shoulder). Morris has experience in HC Kyle Shanahan's offense after spending his first 2 NFL seasons in it with the Redskins.

NFL Network's Jane Slater hears that Cowboys RB Alfred Morris will start this weekend's game against the Chiefs. That doesn't guarantee anything beyond him being on the field for Dallas' 1st offensive snap. But it does give Morris the 1st crack at developing the hot hand. Slater adds that RB Rod Smith, not RB Darren McFadden, is #2 on the depth chart -- but that "all will get touches."

Adam Schefter reports that former Washington RB Alfred Morris will sign a 2-year deal with the Cowboys. After a terrific rookie season in both real and fantasy terms, Morris saw his rushing attempts, yards, TDs and yards per carry fall each of the past 3 years. That slipped to 3.7 yards per rush in 2015, when Morris couldn't keep the primary backfield job away from rookie Matt Jones (but also never totally lost it). We wouldn't be surprised to see Dallas also add a mid-round RB in the upcoming NFL Draft, likely a more dynamic player than Morris. But the veteran will give them a steady presence behind 1 of the league's best offensive lines. Short of that, Morris will need to fend off and/or share the job with Darren McFadden, while Lance Dunbar remains a passing-game factor. The crowd might challenge Morris' volume and keep him in RB3 range for fantasy football, even if he leads the backfield in touches.
