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.
Talked to a source who has seen Knowshon Moreno's knee. Said it's "bad." Prob will play, but the issue is how long.

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.
in a report from Rapoport Friday, Knowshon Moreno will visit with a doctor next week to see if surgery is necessary, tough break for him
