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.


Miami lists inactives for Week 2 of preseason


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) According to the team's official website, the following players will not dress for the Dolphins against the Buccaneers Saturday night: Mike Gillislee, Knowshon Moreno, Daniel Thomas, Charles Clay, Micajah Reynolds, Mike Pouncey, Jason Fox, Arthur Lynch, Gator Hoskins and A.J. Francis.

Knowshon Moreno to make preseason debut next week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno (knee) is not expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Bucs, a source told NFL.com. However, he is expected to make his preseason debut next week against the Cowboys.

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.


Report: Knowshon Moreno's knee is 'bad'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/2014) The news continues to get worse for Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno. According to the National Football Post, a source said Moreno's knee is "bad."

Earlier Friday, NFL.com and Pro Football Talk reported that Moreno could be facing surgery on his left knee, which has kept him out of practice during minicamp this week. He is reportedly scheduled to see a doctor in Miami next week to find out what's going on and could require arthroscopic knee surgery.

The report in the National Football Post didn't indicate Moreno will miss the season or even be out for training camp but said he "probably will play, but the issue is how long." The assumption is Moreno could be dealing with a degenerative condition in the knee.

If healthy, Moreno will compete with Lamar Miller for the starting job. He was signed this offseason by Miami to a one-year, $3 million contract.


Knowshon Moreno could be facing knee surgery


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno could be facing surgery on his left knee, reports NFL.com.

The report says Moreno's lack of activity in practice is due to his left knee, which has been bothering him this spring. If Moreno does not improve then arthroscopic surgery is possible, and he plans to see a doctor in Miami next week to find out.

Moreno signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Dolphins this offseason, $1.25 million guaranteed. He is competing with Lamar Miller for the starting spot.


Report: Knowshon Moreno battling health issues


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/19/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno is dealing with some sort of medical issue that has kept him out of minicamp this week, a source told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Moreno had looked out of shape in previous workouts and seemingly fell out of first-team reps because of it. But according to the source Moreno's been slowed down by something else for "a couple of weeks." 

Moreno signed a one-year, $3 million deal this offseason after totaling over 1,500 yards and 13 touchdowns last season. He's been at practice and doing some individual stuff but hasn't done much work in 7 on 7 drills or team drills. 


Report: Knowshon Moreno's lost some weight


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/19/2014) Running back Knowshon Moreno has already dropped some excess weight, a problem he dealt with at the beginning of the team's offseason program, the Miami Herald reports. Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin still insists he's happy with what Moreno brings every day, though it's been Lamar Miller working as the primary running back in camp so far. 

Knowshon Moreno limited to individual drills


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno did some foot drills but was not a part of 7 on 7 or full team drills on Tuesday, the Palm Beach Post reports. Lamar Miller took first-team reps with Daniel Thomas pitching in with the starters. 

Coach Joe Philbin only defended Moreno following practice, saying he's had a good camp and "brings a lot of energy into the building every single day" per the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Moreno admitted less than a week ago that he was "not there" physically but expects to be fine for training camp. 


Knowshon Moreno knows he's out of shape


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/12/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno agreed with coach Joe Philbin that his fitness needs improvement, reports the Miami Herald.

Moreno has been working behind Lamar Miller with the backups during practice.

"I'm definitely not there," Moreno said about where he needs to be physically. "This is just the beginning. It’s just the beginning, getting your feet wet, and when you have time off, working at those little things, getting back to where you need to be, and once camp comes, it’ll be good."


Lamar Miller still ahead of Knowshon Moreno


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/10/2014) The Dolphins continue to use Lamar Miller as the starting running back in OTA workouts ahead of Knowshon Moreno, reports ESPN.

The report says Miller worked with the first team for the third week in a row. Moreno, meanwhile, appears to be working his way into shape.

"He's had a very good camp," coach Joe Philbin said of Miller. "This is the time as a third-year player that you're ready to make a big contribution."


Knowshon Moreno falls behind Lamar Miller


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2014) Although running back Knowshon Moreno opened Dolphins' OTAs with the first team, he is now working primarily with the second team as Lamar Miller takes a lot of first-team snaps, reports the Miami Herald.

Coach Joe Philbin told the paper that Moreno's conditioning "could be better."


Knowshon Moreno opens OTAs as starter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2014) Running back Knowshon Moreno took the first-team reps as the Dolphins opened OTAs, reports the Miami Herald. The free-agent acquisition played ahead of Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas.

Philbin likes Knowshon Moreno's versatility


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/23/2014) Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said Tuesday he likes new running back Knowshon Moreno's "versatility and multiple skill set," reports the Miami Herald.

Moreno signed with the Dolphins this offseason as a free agent from Denver. He is coming off a career season with 241 carries for 1,038 yards and 10 touchdowns and 60 catches for 548 yards and three touchdowns.


Knowshon Moreno expected to see more stacked boxes


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) As the Broncos' lead back last year, Knowshon Moreno rushed 242 times and all but 50 carries came against six or fewer defenders in the box, reports ESPN. Opponents played extra defensive backs to contain Peyton Manning and the passing attack.

Moreno, who signed with the Dolphins on Thursday, is expected to face more stacked boxes in 2014 and his numbers should suffer.


Expect Knowshon Moreno to end up on bust lists


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/27/2014) Last year the Dolphins had all sorts of issues when it came to running the football. They didn't run it enough (29th in the league in rush attempts) and when they did run it they used two backs almost haphazardly, making it tough for Fantasy owners to really trust either one (not that Lamar Miller nor Daniel Thomas did anything to distinguish themselves). 

Enter Knowshon Moreno, fresh off of a career year where he totaled 1,583 yards and 13 touchdowns on 301 touches (241 carries, 60 catches). Great numbers, but those are to be expected when you're the primary running back for the Broncos and the highest-scoring offense in NFL history. 

The Dolphins are rebuilding their offensive line and don't quite have the weaponry to stack up with what Moreno played alongside last season -- especially at quarterback. That means more focus will be on him as defenses will attempt to slow down Miami's run game. Moreno also comes to a tougher division in terms of matchups. And lest we forget that Moreno does have some injury issues that didn't really pop up until very, very late last season. 

I wouldn't bet on him exceeding the equivalent of 50 percent of those stats, though. That's not a bad thing -- that could still mean 900 total yards and six touchdowns, No. 2 running back territory. But I think Moreno will fall into the group of backs you settle for on Draft Day, not necessarily aim for. He'll probably be on a bunch of bust lists too. 


Knowshon Moreno to get $3 million in Miami


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Running back Knowshon Moreno's one-year deal with the Dolphins is worth about $3 million, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Knowshon Moreno favored to start over Lamar Miller


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) The Dolphins finally have an all-purpose tailback in Knowshon Moreno, and he's likely the front-runner to start ahead of Lamar Miller, according to the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel. "Because Moreno is viewed as a reliable pass protector, he's the type of tailback who never has to leave the field, which is what the Dolphins sought this offseason," the report said.
