Denver’s overtime loss at New England happened despite the very best efforts of running back Knowshon Moreno.
The one-time draft bust has broken out during two years with Peyton Manning, and Moreno put together the performance of a lifetime in Foxborough, gaining 224 yards on a whopping 37 carries.
Per multiple reports, Moreno was spotted in the locker room on crutches. Mike Klis of the Denver Post has reported that Moreno left the stadium in a walking boot.
It became obvious during overtime that Moreno had injured his right foot or ankle. He continued to play not long after hopping toward the sidelines after an Aqib Talib tackle.
The Broncos will need Moreno next Sunday, when they head to Kansas City for a rematch with the Chiefs.
