By the time he was done, Morgan had a 34-yard return. And while the Redskins didn’t take advantage on the ensuing offensive drive, it was a boost. Their previous best return was just 11 yards.

Davis inactive, deadline looms

Tight end Fred Davis was inactive for the second consecutive week.

Davis sat amid rumors that he wants to be dealt before the NFL trade deadline Tuesday. Davis denied that in a radio interview last Tuesday with WJFK-FM (106.7 The Fan).

But he also said that a change of scenery might be necessary if he isn’t in the team’s plans.

Last season, Davis appeared in seven games before sustaining a season-ending tear of his left Achilles tendon Oct. 21 in a game against the New York Giants.

He was second on the Redskins with 796 receiving yards in 2011 and had 59 catches and three touchdowns. But Davis missed the final four games of that season for a violation of the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
