Last week, Morris recorded his first 100-yard rushing performance of the season, gaining 125 yards on 21 attempts. With his next 100-yard rushing game, Morris will tie Earnest Byner, George Rogers and Terry Allen for the fifth-most 100-yard rushing games in team history (12).

Through two-and-a-half seasons, Morris (3,714) is one of only 17 running backs in NFL history to exceed 3,700 rushing yards in his first three seasons, joining Eric Dickerson, Earl Campbell, Jamal Lewis, Chris Johnson, LaDainian Tomlinson, Adrian Peterson, Clinton Portis, Terrell Davis, Ottis Anderson, Barry Sanders, Emmitt Smith, Eddie George, Edgerrin James, Walter Payton, Curtis Martin and Jim Brown, a list that features seven Pro Football Hall of Famers.
