Knowshon Moreno signs one-year deal with Miami
Thursday, March 27, 2014, 3:28pm
At least for the moment, Moreno will join Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas in Miami to help bolster one of the weaker running attacks in the league from 2013. Moreno's departure seems to leave Montee Ball in a good position in Denver, with Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson also in the mix. But, the Broncos had a hard time trusting all three of those guys last year right into the Super Bowl. They could again address this position in the draft with a slim free agent crop left. Adam Schefter has since reported the Broncos believe in Ball and that it's his time to shine.

Montee Ball takes first team reps on Wednesday
Thursday, November 28, 2013, 10:36am
Broncos interim coach Jack Del Rio said Wednesday he was hopeful RB Knowshon Moreno would return to practice this week and be available for at least some of Sunday's road game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Both teams are 9-2 and tied for first in the AFC West.
"He didn't go today,'' Del Rio said. "I felt pretty good about the report I got back. We'll just see how the week goes.''
Montee Ball is expected to get the start if Moreno doesn't play and took snaps with the first team Wednesday. But the Broncos would likely use all three of the remaining backs on the roster -- Ball, C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman -- in a rotation if Moreno doesn't play. All three have struggled at times with ball security this season, with Ball having lost three fumbles.
A rotation with Anderson and Hillman would limit Ball's upside in the event that Moreno sits. If Moreno does play, it sounds as if the Broncos are prepared to give Ball a significant share of the carries as a backup despite his ball security issues.
Knowshon Moreno has significant bone bruise
Monday, November 25, 2013, 10:29am
Broncos’ running back Knowshon Moreno left Gillette Stadium on Sunday night with 224 more rushing yards on his stat chart — but also a boot on his right foot.
Moreno’s injury is not considered serious by football standards, although he did suffer a significant bone bruise in his lower right leg. He will be questionable at best to play Sunday at Kansas City.
The Broncos could be in trouble if Moreno misses time. Both Ronnie Hillman and Monte Ball have been benched because of fumbling, Hillman (inactive this past week) last month and Ball on Sunday night. Even undrafted rookie C.J. Anderson botched a handoff in OT Sunday night and otherwise appeared out of sync when Moreno came off the field for a breather. Ball is probably the guy to step in here, but it could end up being a hot hand or committee approach - like it was supposed to be before Moreno stepped up. Someone is going to have to be trusted...
