Morgan Moses calls out Redskins coaches for sitting Adrian Peterson

Washington Redskins right tackle Morgan Moses wasn’t happy with the decision to make running back Adrian Peterson a healthy scratch on Sunday, and said he plans to say something to the Redskins’ coaching staff to ensure it doesn’t happen again, Scott Allen of the Washington Post reports.

“Any time you’ve got a Hall of Fame guy that doesn’t dress, man, it’s a slap in the face,” Morgan told the Sports Junkies on 106.7 The Fan on Monday, when asked if Peterson would have helped a Redskins running game that produced a measly 28 yards in a season-opening loss to the Eagles. “ … It’s my job as one of the older guys on the offensive line to speak up and say, ‘Hey, we need him.' Obviously, you don’t put a Hall of Fame guy like that on the sideline, and when he’s healthy, as well. I think he brings a lot to the game. I think he brings a lot to our team. But to have that guy just standing on the sideline is just, it doesn’t sit well to guys on the team or the NFL."

Shortly after the news broke that Peterson would be a healthy inactive for the first time in his career Sunday morning, reports emerged that the decision hadn’t gone over well with Peterson’s teammates.

“I’ve talked to a couple people earlier in the week, and even today, and they’re not happy about this,” former Redskins linebacker and CBS Sports Network analyst London Fletcher said on “That Other Pregame Show.” “Not everyone is on board with Adrian Peterson not playing in this ballgame. … It’s affecting that locker room. I just don’t understand it.”
