Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno out for season (torn ACL)


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) The Dolphins placed running back Knowshon Moreno on season-ending injured reserve because of a torn ACL, the club announced Tuesday.

After leaving the Broncos for a one-year deal in Miami, Moreno struggled to make an impact and with injuries, also suffering a elbow issues as well. He played in only three games and in his final two rushed for only 14 yards on seven carries.

Lamar Miller will continue to be the Dolphins' primary back -- he leads Miami with 330 rushing yards -- with Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams also sharing carries.


Dolphins' Knowshon Moreno takes back seat to Lamar Miller Week 6


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno returned to action but took a back seat to his running mate Lamar Miller in a Week 6 defeat to the Packers on Sunday.

Moreno got stuffed by Green Bay's defense on a fourth and goal from the 1-yard like in the opening quarter, a costly result considering Miami lost by three points. Moreno rotated series with Miller early on, but only received two touches after halftime. He took six carries for 10 yards, averaging 1.7 yards per game. He also caught one pass for a again of 8 yards in a 27-24.

The Dolphins will travel to Chicago to face the Bears in Week 7.


Dolphins' Knowshon Moreno cleared for Green Bay game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) As expected, Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno was listed as probable for Week 6 against Green Bay, despite nursing an elbow injury. It'll be Moreno's first game back since the second week of the season. Lamar Miller is still expected to get the start.

Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno expected to play vs. Packers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno is on track to play Week 6 at home against the Packers, according to the Miami Herald. Moreno, who suffered an elbow injury in Week 2 against the Bills, returned to practice this week and has been officially ruled probable for Sunday. He'll likely wear an elbow brace for support against Green Bay.

Dolphins trying to see if Knowshon Moreno can play with elbow brace


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) While Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno is back at practice after missing two games due to a dislocated elbow, he is practicing with a bulky protective brace and the team is trying to figure out if he will be able to play with the brace, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

"I think it's just a matter of him getting used to playing with it in practice. He's got to get a feel of it and carrying the ball with it, pass protection," coach Joe Philbin said. "Obviously we just can't have him in there when we are running the ball or free release him all the time. Those are things we take the practice week to figure out."


Report: Knowshon Moreno practicing with elbow brace


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno is practicing Wednesday and wearing a brace on his dislocated elbow, reports ESPN.com. He made a surprising return to practice Monday, well ahead of his original timetable.

Moreno has a chance to play Sunday against the Packers. He ran for 138 yards and a touchdown in the first two games.


What to do if Knowshon Moreno returns


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) With Knowshon Moreno possibly on the verge of a return to action for the Dolphins, how should Fantasy owners approach Week 6's game against the Packers?

Lamar Miller has been a more-than-capable fill in for Moreno, totaling just 27 carries between two games in Moreno's absence. He rushed for 172 yards in those two games and finished with 30 Fantasy points, showing he can be productive even without a true No. 1's role. The return of Moreno might not be a death sentence for his Fantasy value, though it does put a ceiling on his potential upside even with a good matchup on the way.

What Moreno's role will be remains to be seen, assuming he is even able to play Sunday. The Packers have struggled to slow running backs this season, but if Moreno plays on a snap count, he should make for a risky start.

Smart money is on the Dolphins splitting the workload pretty evenly with Moreno coming back from an injury; remember, Miller got 11 carries even in Moreno's big breakout in Week 1. The Packers are allowing 21.6 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs this season, so Miller should be worth starting either way, with the upside of a solid No. 2 if Moreno sits out. If Moreno plays, consider both flex or No. 3 backs. 


Dolphins' Knowshon Moreno has chance to return to lineup Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said Monday if running back Knowshon Moreno, who has missed the last two games due to a dislocated elbow, proves he can handle all the necessary running back responsibilities in practice, then he has a chance to play Week 6 vs. Green Bay, according to The Palm Beach Post.

Moreno surprisingly returned to practice Monday after he said last week he would likely be sidelined four more weeks.

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.
