Knowshon Moreno has significant bone bruise

Denver Post - [Full Article]

Broncos’ running back Knowshon Moreno left Gillette Stadium on Sunday night with 224 more rushing yards on his stat chart — but also a boot on his right foot.

Moreno’s injury is not considered serious by football standards, although he did suffer a significant bone bruise in his lower right leg. He will be questionable at best to play Sunday at Kansas City.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Broncos could be in trouble if Moreno misses time. Both Ronnie Hillman and Monte Ball have been benched because of fumbling, Hillman (inactive this past week) last month and Ball on Sunday night. Even undrafted rookie C.J. Anderson botched a handoff in OT Sunday night and otherwise appeared out of sync when Moreno came off the field for a breather. Ball is probably the guy to step in here, but it could end up being a hot hand or committee approach - like it was supposed to be before Moreno stepped up. Someone is going to have to be trusted...
