Report: Knowshon Moreno suffered dislocated elbow


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno could miss up to four weeks after suffering a dislocated elbow in Week 2 against the Bills, according to ProFootballTalk.com.

Moreno suffered the injury after his first carry of the game, which went for 4 yards, and he was unable to return to the game. At this point, the team has not updated his status, but he will likely be evaluated further Monday.


Knowshon Moreno ruled out with elbow injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Bills toward the end of the first quarter, with what appeared to be a left elbow injury.

Moreno fell awkwardly on his left elbow at the end of a play, and had to be helped to the locker room. He was ruled out for the game shortly after going to the locker room, though the extent of the injury is not yet known.

Moreno entered the game in the team's second drive, and finished with one carry for 4 yards. His status moving forward is unknown.


Knowshon Moreno playing through shoulder issue


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno is active and in uniform, as expected, for Week 2 against the Bills. Moreno was listed on the official injury report for Sunday's game with a shoulder injury, but it was never expected to be serious enough to keep him out. 

Knowshon Moreno limited again Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno was limited in practice Thursday.

Moreno is dealing with a shoulder injury. Despite the lack of action in practice, Moreno is expected to play Week 2 against the Bills. 


Knowshon Moreno, Mike Wallace limited Wednesday

(9/10/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno (shoulder) and wideout Mike Wallace (hamstring) were limited in Wednesday's practice ahead of their Week 2 matchup at Buffalo.

Dolphins OC not making decision on starting RB yet


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Despite Knowshon Moreno's terrific debut against the Patriots in Week 1's 33-20 win over the Patriots, Dolphins offensive coordinator Bill Lazor told reporters Monday he has not thought about whether Moreno will be moved into the starting lineup for Week 2 against the Bills.

Lamar Miller got the start for the Dolphins and was solid, rushing for 59 yards on 11 carries. However, Moreno was the star of the victory, totaling 134 yards on 24 carries. Regardless of which player starts the first series for the Dolphins, Moreno looks to be the lead back at this point. 


Knowshon Moreno leads the way in opening victory


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno put any questions about who the team's No. 1 option is in Week 1, as he carried the team to a 33-20 win over the Patriots Sunday.

Moreno split time early in the game with Lamar Miller, but quickly established himself as the team's workhorse. He carried the ball 24 times for 134 yards, a total that would have ranked as his second-best performance a year ago.

Moreno split time with Miller on goal-line packages, but still found the end zone on a 4-yard run in the fourth quarter. He did not factor into the passing game in the win.

Moreno's role was not clear after injuries slowed him in the preseason, but he seems to have cemented himself as the team's top option with Sunday's performance. The Dolphins' next game is set for Sunday in Buffalo in Week 2. 


Dolphins backfield timeshare unlikely to make either worth starting


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) The Dolphins brought Knowshon Moreno in this offseason to compete with Lamar Miller for playing time, but it appears as if Miller will open the season as the starter. However, with a potential timeshare looking likely, will either be of much use in Week 1 against the Patriots?

The Patriots were 14th in the league in Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs last season, but the Dolphins actually found a surprising amount of success against them. Miller in particular was a solid contributor, as he rushed for 150 yards total and accounted for 16 Fantasy points. However, that was when he was sharing the workload with Daniel Thomas, a much less useful overall option than Moreno, who should cut into his playing time even more.

In fact, The Miami Herald reported Monday Moreno is likely to see more playing time than Miller, who will likely be used in more limited packages until he proves he is otherwise ready for a larger role.

Even if Moreno does end up playing a larger role, neither player is likely to be used as anything like a workhorse for Sunday's game, making each a risky Fantasy option. Neither ranks among the top-30 in our running back rankings for this week, though Moreno has slightly more value at this point as a Flex option. 


Lamar Miller listed as starter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) The Dolphins' first depth chart lists Lamar Miller as the starter at running back over Knowshon Moreno, reports the Miami Herald. But the paper adds that "it's all subject to change of course."

Miller had a disappointing preseason, while Moreno averaged 6.4 yards per carry in his one preseason appearance.


Report: Knowshon Moreno, not Lamar Miller, is lead back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) The Miami Herald asserts "it is clear" Knowshon Moreno is the Dolphins' lead running back and that Lamar Miller is the No. 2 back. Miller had a chance to seize the job this preseason but averaged 3.4 yards per carry.

The team will have a package of plays for Miller and use him as a change of pace, the paper said.

"I've seen lots on the practice field that tells me where we're headed with Lamar and I feel very good about his ability to be productive," offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said. "But if you're talking about the preseason games, his production needs to improve."


Coach more effusive about Lamar Miller than Knowshon Moreno


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Dolphins running backs Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno split first-team reps the past two days, reports the Miami Herald. While coach Joe Philbin said the starting job is open, he was more effusive talking about Miller.

"I like everything Lamar has done since he's gotten here," Philbin said. "He's had an excellent offseason and camp. ... I like everything he's done since April 21 [the start of offseeason workouts]."

About Moreno, Philbin merely said, "He ran the ball well Saturday [against Dallas]."

The paper called Moreno the better third-down option, because of his superior pass protection skills. Miami opens the season Sunday, Sept. 7 against New England.


Dolphins still evaluating running back situation


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) In the wake of Knowshon Moreno's brilliant performance Saturday, Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said nothing has been decided at running back. "We haven't released anything," Philbin told ESPN.com.

"We're still evaluating right up until we name our starter. I thought [Moreno] played well."

Making his preseason debut, Moreno ran 10 times for 64 yards against the Cowboys. Lamar Miller carried seven times for 34 yards and caught two passes for 3 yards.

Whether Moreno starts or not, he'll be a "key cog" in the offense, the website said.


Knowshon Moreno outplays Lamar Miller in dress rehearsal game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Dolphins coach Joe Philbin rotated running backs Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno during Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys.

Miller got the start but Moreno saw some early work on the opening drive and showed some explosiveness throughout the game. Moreno's first handoff resulted in a 19-yard dash. On the second drive, he ripped an 11-yard run. He played the entire first half and finished with 10 carries for 64 yards, averaging 6.4 yards per attempt.

Miller played into the third quarter with the first unit and took seven handoffs for 34 yards, averaging 4.9 yards per attempt. He was targeted three times and finished with two catches for three yards.

Knowshon Moreno's conditioning 'getting there'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Dolphins coach Joe Philbin told the Miami Herald that running back Knowshon Moreno's conditioning is "getting there. This is a big week ... I think Wednesday and the rest of this week will be important for his conditioning."

Moreno missed the first two preseason games following offseason arthroscopic knee surgery. Miami hosts the Cowboys on Saturday.

Knowshon Moreno becoming a factor again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno participated in his first full-padded practice Monday, and he wasn't afraid to test his knee, reports ESPN.com. Moreno made several sharp cuts and had an impressive inside run for about 25 yards, the report said.

"I'm definitely comfortable," said Moreno, who's coming off summer knee surgery. "I know what I'm doing out there and, if I have any questions, I can ask the quarterback. I can ask whoever. But I feel really good."

Moreno looks to be in better shape than he was a month ago but is still not 100 percent. "You're never 100 percent in this game," he said. Still, Moreno is now in position to challenge Lamar Miller for the starting job.


Knowshon Moreno pleased with progress


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Although Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno was activated off the PUP list and cleared to practice Wednesday, coach Joe Philbin made sure to temper expectations about an immediate return to the lineup for Moreno.

"This was his first practice out here [Wednesday], so I don’t know if it would be a wise coaching decision [to play] a guy who really hasn’t participated, to throw him in a game yet," Philbin said, per The Miami Herald.

Moreno might not be ready for game action, but he was pleased with his progress coming off knee surgery.

"Just gradual [improvement]," Moreno said, describing his recovery from his surgery in June. "Just gradual every day. Trying to make a step towards getting out there. But [Wednesday] was just testing it out and seeing how it feels. It feels good to put the shoulder pads on … and come out here and just work with the guys."


Knowshon Moreno not ready for team drills


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) While the Dolphins activated Knowshon Moreno (knee) from the PUP list, he did not participate in team drills Wednesday, reports the Miami Herald.

Dolphins activate Knowshon Moreno


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/6/2014) The Dolphins have activated running back Knowshon Moreno from the PUP list, making him eligible to practice and play in preseason games.

The Miami Herald previously reported that Moreno wasn't a lock to play in the preseason after undergoing a knee procedure before the start of training camp. 


Knowshon Moreno could miss entire preseason


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno is still laboring to walk following arthroscopic knee surgery and is not guaranteed to return during the preseason, reports the Miami Herald. Moreno wore ice packs on both knees and "had an awkward gait" as he walked to the practice field Friday, the paper said.

"I feel good, but at the same time, I just want to be right, be real good, so when I go out there, I can just be full-speed and not have any setbacks," he said.

Moreno's recovery from the late June procedure has gone slower than expected. He couldn't say if he'd play in any preseason games.

"I really don’t even know," Moreno said. "I just want to take each day one at a time. They have a schedule for me and they’re just going to tell me every day what I have to do, and I just go out there and do it."

At this point it would be an upset if Moreno unseated Lamar Miller as the starter.


Dolphins place Mike Pouncey, Knowshon Moreno on PUP list


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) The Dolphins opened training camp Friday by placing center Mike Pouncey and running back Knowshon Moreno on the physically unable to perform list, reports ESPN.

Pouncey had major hip surgery this summer and reportedly could miss as much as eight weeks of the regular season. Moreno had a cleanup procedure on his knee and should return before the end of the preseason.

Both players are expected to eventually be key members of Miami's offense. Pouncey is arguably the Dolphins’ best offensive player. Moreno, who started last year for the Broncos, signed a one-year contract to compete with incumbent starting tailback Lamar Miller.


'Won't be too long' until Knowshon Moreno returns for Miami


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2014) Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said he's not worried about Knowshon Moreno coming back in bad shape. The team opens training camp on Thursday and will begin practicing soon thereafter. Moreno had offseason knee surgery after reportedly showing up to camp out of shape. 

"Not full throttle 100 percent reps yet but won't be too long," Philbin said of Moreno via the Miami Herald.


Knowshon Moreno to get left knee scoped


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery and miss four to five weeks, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Moreno likely won't be ready for the start of training camp.

He signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Dolphins after enjoying a career year with the Broncos in 2013. Moreno was expected to start or at least share snaps with Lamar Miller, but the injury has set Moreno back.
