When the Redskins’ Alfred Morris scores this year, his trademark celebration may end up costing his team.

Pro Football Talk reports the referees working NFL training camps have been warning players about celebrating too much.

That could mean more penalties will be in the works.

Morris taught the dance to NewsChannel 3’s Laila Muhammad during training camp.

The NFL rule book calls for a 15-yard penalty for excessive celebrating.
