Bruce has another 0 catch day
Morgan has a nice game and looks really good playing along side Crabtree
Bruce is benched in favor of Morgan the next week
I am convinced the team didn't want to bench Bruce a legend and future HOF 16 year vet for a guy who hasn't played yet. Morgan however is what a 6th round pick? You don't have to do much explaining to the locker room about that one.
Week 8 Bruce will have 0 or 1 catch meanwhile B.Jones will have at least 3 catches
B.Jones takes Bruce's spot week 9 as the #3 WR
then i'm not sure if Bruce would ask for his release or just earn a free gamecheck.
Im sure you will see Morgan and Bruce share snaps, I think the team did not want to come out and bench Bruce in favor of a rookie (who just signed 2wks ago) but you can be sure Morgan will be getting some of Bruce's snaps and he will also be splitting some time with Crabtree and also seeing action as the 3rd WR, so Morgan may not lose many if any snaps.
He just may end up having one of his best games of his career with all the hype and attention around Crabtree and the fact Gore is back so that means 8 and 9 man fronts again.
