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.

Some notes from Denver camp:

- Lance Ball was the No. 2 tailback behind Willis McGahee. Knowshon Moreno wore a knee brace and didn’t participate in team drills. Mario Fannin got some reps with the No. 2 offense.

- Caleb Hanie was clearly the No. 2 QB. Adam Weber was No. 3 and rookie Brock Osweiler was No. 4. The competition here is between Hanie and Weber. The Broncos probably won’t keep both.
