No hamstring tear for Knowshon

NFL_moreno2.jpgEarlier today, multiple reports emerged indicating that Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno suffered a torn hamstring in training camp.

A report now emerges that the hamstring isn’t torn, after all.

Josina Anderson of FOX 31 says via Twitter that the MRI revealed that the injury wasn’t as serious as the team had feared.  More specifically, there’s no tearing of the muscle.

To summarize, then, roughly a dozen (or so it seems) skill-position players have taken cart rides in the early days of training camp, and not a single one ended up with a serious injury.

UPDATE:  Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that Moreno is expected to miss three weeks due to the hamstring strain.

  1. I’m sorry but Moreno fragile. He won’t last the year (he may not last the the preseason at this rate).
    JMcD: CALL BRIAN WESTBROOK.

  2. Uh, what? If you want an insurance policy for a “fragile” Moreno, why in the holy hell would you call upon Brian Westbrook to be that policy? Since when was an aging player with a staggering number of concussions an insurance policy for a guy with a hamstring issue?

  3. “The Denver Post and NFL Network report that the Broncos fear Moreno tore his hamstring, which usually means he tore his hamstring. (Otherwise, they’d say it was minor.)”
    So, Florio, it does no good to second guess what they said earlier, from what you posted………

  4. To bad McDumbass didnt like Hillis, would be nice to have him as a back up.
    Good thing mcDummy wasted a first round pick on an over rated full back in Tebust.

  5. dez was the only one that was really hurt. and they made his ass walk. somethings wrong with this picture

  6. Coincidental his middle name starts with P and ends with Y…and i think that is exactly what he hurt

  7. Point taken. I’m a retard. I’m just so over Moreno hurting himself.
    Can anyone else suggest a good replacement for mister “i twist something on every play”?
    But my comment made no sense. Time for a bong hit.

  8. Thank god.
    Don’t know how we’d make do without that 3.8 yards-per-carry average and that Gerald Willhite-esque ability to fall on your face in the open field.

  9. Doesnt matter the Broncos are going nowhere anytime soon. They got rid of their 2 best players Cutler and B. Marshall. Drafted Tebow in the 1st rd! LOL and have ZERO talent at QB. Great job Donkeys!

  10. Says the Raider fan: “Doesnt matter the Broncos are going nowhere anytime soon.”
    Hi. Lar. I. Ous.

  11. raiderbob… i dislike the broncos but Russell, McFadden, Heyward-Bey. Come on man use your head before rippin a team for draftin someone they really like before he has even taken a snap.

    Why does Steelersrule keep posting the SAME EXACT COMMENT OVER AND OVER AGAIN?
    Probably for the same reason you post over and over again on the same topic, and use CAPS as well. The rest of us know why. We’re just waiting for you to figure it out.

  13. Freaking RaiderRob (I assume in all seriousness)says:
    “Doesnt matter the Broncos are going nowhere anytime soon. They got rid of their 2 best players Cutler and B. Marshall. Drafted Tebow in the 1st rd! LOL and have ZERO talent at QB. Great job Donkeys! ”
    This is by far the most hilarious thing I have seen on this site. Oftentimes, its the lack of perspective that keeps me reading the comments. An egregious example, this. Bravo, RaiderRob, Bravo!
    By the way, Ryan Clady is their best player. Then Champ Bailey. So there’s that.

  14. a strain is a tear of a muscle, while a sprain is a tear of a ligament. lets educate ourselves and call injuries what they are. there are different degrees, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd (the feared tear). knowshon tore his hamstring, its just not as bad as previously thought, but still a tear. so basically, you cant have a strain and not tear your hamstring. i noticed the article is linked to other articles to discuss the degree of injury, but when you have conflicting or scientifically inaccurate reports as the link line, it is misleading to readers who follow this site for their football info.
    i bring just the facts while you adjust the facts.

  15. HANDSOFSWEED, what makes you say that Brian Westbrook has had a “staggering” amount of concussions. He’s only had 2 in his 8 years in the NFL. Many people think he wasnt fully recovered from his 1st concussion, thats why he suffered his 2nd during his 1st game back. So I dont know where the hell you came up with a “staggering” amount.

    You’re definitely a clown, I’ll give you that.
    As much as I have loved watching Westbrook play, the guy is physically shot.

  17. Another Ronnie Brown in the works…. always banged up or something EVERY YEAR!!! Call Westbrook, but Shannahan will probably beat them to it!!!
