Knowshon Moreno injury: Broncos RB questionable with bone bruise
After a big Sunday night against the Patriots, the veteran running back could be shelved for the team’s rematch with the Chiefs.
Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno suffered a bone bruise in his foot on Sunday night and is questionable to return for a Week 13 rematch against the Kansas City Chiefs, reports the Denver Post.
Moreno piled up a career-high 224 rushing yards in Denver’s overtime loss to the New England Patriots, but received a significant bone bruise in his right foot in the process.
If the veteran running back can’t go, Peyton Manning and the Denver offense will be forced to turn to a pair of youngsters in rookie Monte Ball and second-year man Ronnie Hillman. Ball was the team’s second-round selection in the 2013 draft but has seen limited action this season in part because of a fumbling problem. He was benched after putting the ball on the ground in the third quarter against the Patriots, his second lost fumble in 72 carries.
