New Cowboys running back Alfred Morris did his best to downplay the significance of Sunday's game in Washington, where he spent the first four years of his career.

Morris signing with Dallas as a free-agent this off-season.

"At the end of the day, it's a business and everything happens for a reason," he said. "I just feel like it's another game, but I can't say how I feel until I actually get on the field."

Morris enjoyed his time in Washington, even though the team decided to let him sign elsewhere.

"I have a lot of fond memories, and some not so fond," he said. "Overall, I'd say that I had a good experience."

The running back says Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins is still a close friend. The two trained together prior to the 2012 draft, and their wives are also close.

In his Cowboys debut, Morris rushed for 35 yards on seven carries.
