FRISCO, Texas (AP) Alfred Morris struck the same defiant tone from the last time the Dallas running back was preparing to replace suspended star Ezekiel Elliott.

Roughly the same answer, too, heading into Sunday’s game at Atlanta.

“I’ve treated every single day like I have the past six years,” Morris said Friday , a day after a court rejected Elliott’s latest bid to delay a six-game suspension over alleged domestic violence. “Nothing changes for me. It’s just, `OK, it’s another start. OK. It’s fine.’ The ups and downs, they really didn’t matter to me.”
