So far, 2009 has been nothing but a hard-luck country song for Josh McDaniels.
Given all that, the Broncos head coach said today that, while first-round running back Knowshon Moreno could play against the Cardinals in Thursday night’s preseason finale, it might not be prudent at this juncture.
According to the Denver Post, McDaniels said today that Moreno “would be capable of playing, but I’m not exactly sure if that’s the smartest decision.”
Moreno, the 12th overall pick out of Georgia, returned to practice Tuesday after injuring his knee in the preseason opener against the Niners.
Still, McDaniels didn’t rule out using him. (Gulp.)
“We’re going to talk about that, taking all the information into account and making sure we do the smart thing by the player and make sure we’re ready for next week,” McDaniels said.
If something does happen, Mr. Murphy may be wondering why his law has now been changed to McDaniels’ Law.
