Willis McGahee, Knowshon Moreno leave game

Tim Tebow, Willis McGahee AP

Willis McGahee’s great season has hit a setback.

The Broncos running back went down in pain Sunday without being hit. He had to be helped off the field.

Knowshon Moreno replaced McGahee in the lineup.  After getting the ball on a short field, Tim Tebow made a nice move in the hole to rush for a seven-yard score.

UPDATE: Moreno left the game on the next series with an undisclosed injury.   The Broncos have called nine runs and no passes as of this post.

UPDATE II: Both players went to the locker room.  Moreno is doubtful to return with a knee injury. McGahee is questionable to return with a hamstring injury.  Lance Ball is now the team’s primary back. Denver has called 15 runs to one pass.

    14 runs 0 passes in the first quarter by the Broncos. I don’t care if you hate Tebow or love him that is insulting to any QB who is not winning in the 4th quarter.

    And there were only one set of footprints heading into the endzone, and the Broncos said, “That’s where Tebow carried us.”

    Knowshon Moreno has been an utter disappointment since coming into the league

    If Tebow’s really a “great guy”, a “team player” and someone who will “do anything to help the team”, he needs to line up at rb and take some handoffs from Kyle Orton (or Brady Quinn who is active today). Just imagine the possibilities of an offense that could both run AND pass!

    Just stunning. 4 min left in the first half, Tebow has no yds passing, and they lead 10-0.

    Meanwhile, Tebow has had one pass attempt in the last 3 qtrs of football going back to last week. WTF John Fox

    Fox’s plan makes some sense; run, run, run then try to drop a long one as the defense pulls in. Tebow isn’t too far off on his throws. One wobbly one – anyone remember Billy Kilmer – that was still could have been caught.
    I don’t mind it. Some short slants, screens a bootleg or something would be nice to mix it up.

    This is exactly what any team should do…run the ball until the other team proves they can stop it. If they never stop you, you win. 4.5 yards per carry is a successful formula all by itself.
