If not a complete exhale, the Broncos may have at least stopped holding their collective breath. The early indication is starting running Knowshon Moreno suffered a severe right hamstring injury, according to an NFL source.
The fear is Moreno may have torn his hamstring.
Although hamstring injuries can vary in severity - and Moreno no doubt popped his pretty good -torn muscles typically heal quicker than ripped up knee ligaments. Remember, there are still 42 days remaining until the Broncos’ first game, sept. 12 at Jacksonville.
Moreno suffered his right leg injury after catching a screen pass and fell in pain after making a cut. He had to be carted off the field and assisted into the locker room.
Moreno, ranked as a top-15 back in both our regular and PPR rankings, was expected to be the one beacon of offensive stability in Denver. Fantasy owners need to be aware that he's not going to be at full strength for awhile, and make plans accordingly.
