Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno was taken off the physically unable to perform list late last week following summer knee surgery and saw his first action in team drills Monday. Moreno showed progress and flashes of the player he was in Denver.
"I'm definitely comfortable," Moreno said after Monday's practice. "I know what I'm doing out there and, if I have any questions, I can ask the quarterback. I can ask whoever. But I feel really good."
Monday's full-padded practice marked Moreno's first contact football since February's Super Bowl defeat.
He said he's still not 100-percent, but according to the story Moreno looks in better shape than he was a month or two ago and hasn't been afraid to test his knee. Moreno made several sharp cuts in both the running and passing game. His best play Monday was an impressive inside run for about 25 yards. Moreno also showed good body lean and pad level during goal-line runs, which is an area Miami struggled last season.
