The Denver Post has confirmed that Broncos RB Mario Fannin tore his Achilles’ tendon during a scrimmage on Saturday and is out for the season. Willis McGahee remains the starter in Denver, while Knowshon Moreno remains in a competition with Ronnie Hillman, Lance Ball and Jeremiah Johnson for the backup spot.

Knowshon Moreno lost the Broncos' starting tailback job to Willis McGahee last year and was used mostly in a third-down role before he was injured. McGahee remains the team's starter, and the team drafted a running back, Ronnie Hillman, in the third round. Veteran Lance Ball also has taken plenty of snaps with the first-team offense through the first five days of camp. Other running backs in camp include Mario Fannin (also coming off an ACL injury), Jeremiah Johnson and Xavier Omon.
Moreno's snaps Monday came right after McGahee's work with the rest of the first-team offense.
