Knowshon Moreno was the Broncos' starting tailback the previous two seasons, as well as in the season opener this year. He missed the next two games with a hamstring injury, and by the time he returned, Willis McGahee had earned the No. 1 role.
Moreno has only 17 carries through six games this year for 54 yards. He also has eight catches for 92 yards. He will start in place of the injuryed McGahee.
Lance Ball is expected to be in the mix as well, and given the team will probably have some scripted run plays for Tim Tebow, it becomes a less-attractive situation.
