Knowshon Moreno injury described as "bad"

The Miami Dolphins brought in RB Knowshon Moreno this offseason to help carry the load in the running game. The team might be regretting that move after hearing about the knee problems that he is having.

Jason Cole describes the knee injury as “bad” and is questioning how long he will be able to play this season. He feels that he will play during the year, but he doesn’t believe that he will be able to last.

The Dolphins have Lamar Miller already on the roster taking the first team reps. Miller will have to take the bulk of the carries for the team during the season, while the team limits the amount of touches that go to Moreno. That is not the way you want to use your free agent signing in the offseason.

Moreno will be seeking another opinion on the situation next week to determine if surgery is needed, per Ian Rapoport. Hopefully he will be able to fight through the issues and still be productive on the field.

    were is the bottom for the dolphins? how much woes can it get?

      The Dolphins were 8-8 and had a great off-season. This is the first blow, and with the good showing of Miller so far it’s far from apocalyptic.

        Great off-seasons are usually determined by the regular season. However what cannot be ignored is the O-line imploded, and Ryan got crushed. THIS I would not count as having a great off season.

    Cut him and save the $$$$
    (Some $$$ anyway)

  • Don Devine

    This is BULLSHIT!!!! It should be determined if he came to us with this injury. If he did we should be able to cut him with no loss to money and we should be further compensated by Denver!!!!!

    Why should Denver compensate Miami for a free agent signing?
