(9/14/2014) The Bears declared these players inactive for Sunday night's game in San Francisco: wideout Josh Morgan (groin), linebacker Khaseem Greene, center Roberto Garza, guard Matt Slauson, offensive tackle Charles Leno and defensive ends David Bass and Cornelius Washington.

Josh Morgan staying steady with preseason production


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Wide receiver Josh Morgan was one of the bright spots for the Bears on Friday night against Seattle.

Morgan caught three passes for 48 yards. His average of 16 yards per reception topped the team among those who caught more than one. He has six catches for 89 yards in the last two games combined.


Josh Morgan is 'next man up' at No. 3 receiver spot


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Bears coach Marc Trestman referred to Josh Morgan as the "next man up" for the No. 3 receiver job, reports the Chicago Tribune. The position came open when Marquess Wilson broke his collarbone two weeks ago.

Morgan caught three passes for a team-high 41 yards against the Jaguars last Thursday. Newly-signed receiver Santonio Holmes, who caught punts in practice Monday, needs to get up to speed quickly to challenge for the No. 3 job.


Josh Morgan agrees to community service


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/9/2014) Bears receiver Josh Morgan, who was accused of assaulting a valet driver in April, has agreed to do community service to have the charge against him vacated, reports Comcast Sports Net.

The report says Morgan has agreed to 32 hours of community service, and they must be completed within four months. If Morgan complies with the terms of the program, the misdemeanor assault charge against him will be erased from his record.

Morgan is competing to be the No. 4 receiver for the Bears behind Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Marquess Wilson.


Bears receiver Josh Morgan jailed on assault charge


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/29/2014) A week after signing a one-year deal with the Bears, receiver Josh Morgan was arrested following an altercation at a Washington, D.C. area nightclub. Police say he punched someone in the face during a verbal confrontation. Morgan claims he's innocent and was released following his arrest because he qualified for citation release.

"Not a scratch on his face," Morgan told WRC-TV in Washington via the Chicago Tribune. "I didn't touch him. ... I've always been a standup guy in the community; I've always been a standup guy period. Everybody knows me. Everybody knows how I am. Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. What a coincidence that now I signed with the Chicago Bears, now all of a sudden it happened."

Josh Morgan hoping for another chance in Washington


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2014) Receiver Josh Morgan had his contract voided by the Redskins last week, but he hopes to return to the team at a lesser price in 2014.  “This is my hometown. This is my community," he told the team's website. "My family is here. My friends are here. This is my team I grew up rooting for.”

Morgan, 28, clashed with former coach Mike Shanahan and produced a career-low 214 receiving yards last season. He wants a fresh start with new coach Jay Gruden.


Three Redskins' contracts voided


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/7/2014) Three members of the 2013 Redskins -- Josh Morgan, Brandon Meriweather and London Fletcher -- all had their contracts voided Friday, according to USA Today. The move will save the Redskins some cap space. 

Morgan had fallen out of favor in Washington and suffered with some of his worst numbers -- just 214 yards and no touchdowns despite playing 14 games. 

Meriweather had a tumultuous tenure with the Redskins, tallying 76 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble and three interceptions over 14 games (two seasons; he hurt his knees in 2012). 

Fletcher, on the other hand, is a candidate for the Hall of Fame after closing out a 16-year career without missing a single game. He is retiring. 


Washington inactives Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Washington has made QB Robert Griffin III, WR Josh Morgan, CB Chase Minnifield, C J.D. Walton, G Josh LeRibeus, LB Adrian Robinson and LB Brian Orakpo inactive Week 17.

Griffin III continues to sit in favor of Kirk Cousins. Orakpo is dealing with a groin injury, and has not improved enough to play.


Roy Helu among fringe contributors


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) The Redskins got minimal contributions from running back Roy Helu, wide receiver Josh Morgan and wide receiver Nick Williams Week 15 at Atlanta.

Helu, the most notable of the three, played a decent number of snaps in relief of Alfred Morris, but he finished with just three carries for 5 yards and one catch for 4. Morgan had three catches for 29 yards, and Williams had one catch for 4.

The Redskins host the Cowboys in Week 16.


Santana Moss, Josh Morgan contribute


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) Wide receivers Santana Moss and Josh Morgan both factored in the Redskins passing game Week 14 against the Chiefs. Moss caught three passes for 30 yards. Morgan caught one for 15.

Neither player has been a huge contributor on offense this season, but Moss has been the more consistent of the two, catching at least three passes five times this season. He was targeted six times in Week 14.


Redskins get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) A slew of Redskins made small offensive contributions Week 13. Receiver Santana Moss caught a 15-yard pass and had a 10-yard run. Receiver Aldrick Robinson had a 9-yard carry and was targeted twice without a catch.

Tight end Fred Davis caught two passes for 13 yards, his first catches since Sept. 15. He also had a terrible drop late in the fourth quarter. Wideout Josh Morgan caught a 10-yard pass, and wideout Nick Williams had a 6-yard grab. Fullback Evan Royster ran twice for zero yards.

They'll face the Chiefs in Week 14.


Josh Morgan has most receptions in a game since Week 1


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2013) Redskins wide receiver Josh Morgan didn't make much of an impact but still managed to finish as the team's second leading receiver during Monday's loss to the 49ers in Week 12.

Morgan was held without a grab in the opening quarter but bounced back with five receptions in the second quarter. He was targeted just once and was held without a catch after halftime. He caught five of the six passes thrown his way for 45 yards in a 27-6 defeat.

It was the most receptions he’s had in a game since Week 1. He has 16 receptions for 169 yards and no touchdowns this season. He'll look to stay productive in Week 13 against the Giants.

Josh Morgan to replaced injured WR in starting lineup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2013) Redskins coach Mike Shanahan announced Wednesday wide receiver Josh Morgan will slide into the starting lineup Week 12 vs. San Francisco after Leonard Hankerson suffered a season-ending knee injury Week 11.

"I've got a lot of confidence in him and he had a good practice (Wednesday)," Shanahan said of Morgan.

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/17/2013) The Redskins' list of inactives for Week 11 at Philadelphia includes defensive back Jose Gumbs (ankle), quarterback Rex Grossman, linebacker Brandon Jenkins, offensive lineman Josh LeRibeus, tight end Fred Davis, defensive lineman Chris Neild and wide receiver Josh Morgan.

Santana Moss, Josh Morgan make minimal contributions


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/8/2013) The Redskins got minimal contributions from two wide receivers during the Week 10 loss at Minnesota Thursday night. 

Veteran Santana Moss couldn't get his feet in bounds on the game's final pass from Robert Griffin III as the Redskins lost the game. Moss finished with one catch for 13 yards on three targets. 

Josh Morgan had a worse night as he was targeted once and did not make the catch. He also nearly fumbled yet another ball on special teams. The Redskins play at Philadelphia next week. 


Redskins have plethora of minor contributors


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) The Washington Redskins had a plethora of minor contributors during the Week 9 win in overtime against the San Diego Chargers Sunday. 

Led by veteran wide receiver Santana Moss, the backup pass-receiving options for quarterback Robert Griffin III had a decent day. Moss caught one pass for 2 yards and also ran the ball once for 18. 

Backup tight end Logan Paulsen recorded three receptions for 9 yards and was targeted three times. Niles Paul, also a TE, caught one pass for 6 yards and saw two targets. 

Backup wide receivers Josh Morgan and Aldrick Robinson combined for one catch for 4 yards. It was Robinson who made the grab. 

The Redskins next play on Thursday of Week 10 at Minnesota. 


Josh Morgan frustrated by lack of playing time


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2013) Redskins receiver Josh Morgan hasn't played more than 26 snaps in any game since the opener, and he's frustrated with his role, reports ESPN.com. Morgan has 11 catches for 124 yards this season.

“It’s hard, but you can’t do nothing about that,” Morgan said. “You just got to go out there and make the best of whatever opportunities they do give you. It’s definitely hard.

“The more you play, the more you’re into the game and the more you can recognize defenses and adjust on the fly,” he added. “Things like that. You get a better feel for the game and what they’re doing. It’s much different than standing on the sidelines."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Morgan was not even targeted in the game by quarterback Robert Griffin III. He did fumble a kick return, however, as the Redskins recovered. 

Moss did not make a catch in the game, despite seeing two targets. Hankerson caught one pass for 26 yards and saw five targets on the game. Washington plays at Denver in Week 8.

Josh Morgan not upset about diminished role


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2013) Redskins wide receiver Josh Morgan said he's not complaining about seeing his playing time dwindle. In fact, Morgan said he's healthier than he was last season and believes he is capable of contributing when given the chance, according to The Washington Post.

"That’s whatever the coaches want," Morgan said Wednesday. "I just work here. I’m just playing. Whatever they want to do, however they want to play it, that’s what they want to do. I have felt like when I have had the opportunity that I’ve showed it."


Leonard Hankerson, Josh Morgan continue to vie for PT


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2013) Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said there remains an ongoing competition between receivers Leonard Hankerson and Josh Morgan, despite Hankerson starting a second straight game Week 3 vs. Washington and seeing an increase in playing time. Hankerson played 54 snaps Sunday, while Morgan logged 24 snaps.

"We thought [Hankerson] had a better game the week before so we gave [him] a few more reps than we did [Morgan] just because of his play the week before," Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said, per The Washington Post. "A lot of competition there for playing time."


Redskins receivers come up empty


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2013) Redskins secondary receiving options Josh Morgan, Aldrick Robinson and Niles Paul didn't have the best of games Week 3 during the home loss to the Lions. 

Morgan caught both passes that came his way for 19 yards. He was targeted just the two times. 

Robinson did not make a catch on two targets. He appeared to come down with a long touchdown pass from Robert Griffin III late in the game that would have given the Redskins the lead. Upon further review, however, replays showed that Robinson did not make the catch. 

Paul also had a bad drop late in the game on what could have been a big play. He was targeted just the once by Griffin in the game. 

Washington plays at Oakland Week 4 and these receiving options are all just roster depth.
