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

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.

Knowshon Moreno agrees to deal with Dolphins


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Free agent running back Knowshon Moreno agreed to a one-year deal with the Dolphins, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Moreno produced 1,587 yards from scrimmage and 13 touchdowns with the Broncos last year.

In Miami, Moreno will compete with Lamar Miller, and to a lesser extent Daniel Thomas, for carries.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) The Dolphins remain interested in signing free agent running back Knowshon Moreno, reports the Miami Herald. Moreno visited the team Friday, and his agent has continued discussions with the Dolphins since then.

Moreno would be an upgrade over Daniel Thomas and form a nice duo with Lamar Miller. The question, according to the paper, is whether the Dolphins and Moreno can agree on financial terms.


Knowshon Moreno set to visit Dolphins Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2014) Former Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno is expected to visit the Miami Dolphins on Friday, Sun Sentinel reports on Thursday.

Moreno was released by the Broncos earlier in March. The five-year veteran rushed for 1,038 yards with 10 touchdowns in 241 carries last season with Denver despite losing some of his touches to Montee Ball in the second half of the season.

Broncos making changes at running back


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/5/2014) The Broncos plan to let Knowshon Moreno leave as a free agent this offseason and go with their young running backs in Montee Ball and C.J. Anderson, reports the Denver Post.

The report says about Moreno "the Broncos appear willing to let him go in exchange for pushing second-year backs Ball and Anderson up a notch." And Ronnie Hillman will get a chance to help out as well.

The main benefactor is Ball, and the report says the "Broncos want to give Ball the first chance at becoming their No. 1 running back in 2014."

Anderson will be No. 2, and Hillman will work into the rotation as well. The Broncos will also look to bring in a veteran, and the report says free agent options include Darren McFadden, Donald Brown and James Starks.


Elway: No decision yet on Knowshon Moreno


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Broncos general manager John Elway said at the NFL Scouting Combine that the team has yet to make a decision about bringing back free agent running back Knowshon Moreno.

"We are still in that process," Elway said. "We are still in the process of evaluating where we are. When you talk about Knowshon, he had a tremendous year for us. You look at the year ... he was reliable, he caught the ball, ran the football for us and was also tremendous in pass protection. Knowshon was a big part of what we did this year. It’s still early in the process as far as what we're going to do in the free agent market."

Moreno has said he wants to stay in Denver, but the NFL Network reported the Broncos are not expected to bring him back in 2014.

"We'll see what happens in the offseason and hopefully I'm still here with this team," Moreno told 9 News Colorado. "I'm still part of the Broncos and that's all good right now. We'll see what happens with the rest."

Moreno's market value could be in the neighborhood of $4 million annually. The Denver Post does not expect the Broncos to go that high.
