Knowshon Moreno, the projected starting running back for the Denver Broncos this season, returned to practice for the first time since August 1 according to the Denver Post.
Moreno, who has been dealing a hamstring injury, wore an orange no-contact jersey.
Moreno, who remains No. 1 on the team’s depth chart, pronounced himself “80-some percent” healed from the injury. It’s unlikely he’ll play in the Broncos’ preseason finale at Minnesota on Thursday, however.
Coach Josh McDaniels said he isn’t worried about Moreno being OK for the regular season without a training camp because he went through something similar last season as a rookie, when he held out at the start of camp and then sprained a knee in his first preseason game.
This is definitely encouraging news if you’re a Broncos fan.
