Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno had the game of his life. He’ll apparently be back on the horse sooner than later.
Per a league source, Moreno has a bone bruise in his ankle. It’s painful, said the source, but Moreno will be OK for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs.
Moreno rushed for 224 yards on 37 carries against the Patriots. According to NBC Sports researcher Aaron Feldstein (i.e., the guy who finds out stuff I don’t know . . . i.e., plenty), Moreno generated the fourth highest rushing total for a player in a losing effort.
In 1976, O.J. Simpson set the then-single game record in a loss to the Lions. In 2002, Ricky Williams gained 228 for the Dolphins in a loss to the Bills. In 2012, Jamaal Charles gained 226 in a lost to the Colts.
Moreno was spotted on crutches after the overtime loss to the Patriots.
