Knowshon Moreno Injury Update: Broncos RB Reportedly Healing Well

Although he hasn't quite lived up to the hype that he had coming out of college, Knowshon Moreno proved to be a valuable asset to the Denver Broncos this season, as he and Willis McGahee combined to form a quality RB duo. However, Moreno saw his season come to an end prematurely, as he injured his knee in the 17-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on November 13.

According to Pro Football Weekly, Moreno continues to heal following the surgery for his Torn ACL and all indications are that he will return to the team in 2012:

Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno is healing well from the knee surgery he underwent in November after suffering a torn ACL. According to a team insider, Moreno is likely to return in 2012, though not with a very big role. His salary-cap number is fairly low next season, so there is little risk in keeping the former first-round pick on the roster to see how he recovers from the injury.

Prior to his injury, Moreno had rushed for 179 yards on 37 carries. Moreno also proved to be a decent receiving threat out of the backfield, pulling in 11 receptions for 101 yards and a TD.
