Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno, who emerged as a potent offensive force the last six weeks of the season, left Saturday's game with a knee injury. Before getting hurt early in the third quarter, he gained 32 yards on 10 carries and also caught a 14-yard touchdown pass. Moreno was fitted with a knee brace as he left the stadium Saturday night, but he was walking without much limp as he walked through the locker room Sunday.
In six games since taking over for an injured Willis McGahee, Knowshon Moreno has averaged 111 total yards and 0.7 TDs, which are RB5-type numbers. In his first nine games, McGahee averaged 98 total yards and 0.4 TDs (RB10 numbers), so he was good in his own right. Both players are under contract through 2014, so we may see a RBBC a la Jonathan Stewart/DeAngelo Williams that HC John Fox used while with the Panthers.
