Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno has had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee since the end of the season. Broncos coach John Fox confirmed the surgery when asked Thursday morning at the NFL’s scouting combine.
Moreno underwent a treatment to insert stem cells harvested from bone marrow in his pelvis into his right knee. It is the same knee Moreno tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) to end his 2011 season.
Moreno would be an interesting draft pick this summer if not for the injury. Willis McGahee may return and the team wants to use Ronnie Hillman more in 2013. This is shaping up to be a murky RBBC.
