And after his heroic defensive display, the 30-year-old shared a picture of his grim heel on social media.
The image shows his heel looking badly damaged with The Bluebirds captain admitting that he also pulled his calf at the beginning of the second half.
It's accompanied with the caption: "And to think you've just played 90 minutes with that on your ankle. How you do it I'll never know."
Morrison told Sky Sports he took painkillers to numb the pain and complete the match.
He said: "I think I pulled my calf after about 50 minutes.
"So, I popped a few painkillers and got on with it.
"But look the young lad who came in at right-back Tom Sang, Browny next to Flinty. Joe Ralls out of position in left wing-back. We dug in today.
"This is what Cardiff City is all about."
The victory in the South Wales derby puts Cardiff in the frame for the Championship play-offs this season.
They're four points behind sixth-placed Reading with eight league games remaining.
