Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno hasn’t practiced since arthroscopic knee surgery in June, and he’s not sure when he’ll be able to go.
Asked if he’ll be able to play at some point in the preseason, Moreno told the Miami Herald, “I don’t know. I don’t know. I really don’t even know. I just want to take each day one at a time. They have a schedule for me and they’re just going to tell me every day what I have to do, and I just go out there and do it.”
Moreno signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Dolphins in March, with $1.25 million guaranteed. But it’s looking increasingly like a running back who was already on the roster, Lamar Miller, will be the Dolphins’ starter. Moreno said he’s unconcerned about who wins the starting job.
“To tell you truth, I’m not even worried about that,” Moreno said. “That’s not my decision. The only thing I can do is what I do out here on the field and get better each day. Whatever the decision the coaches make, it’s the decision the coaches make. But at the same time, I feel like any one in that backfield, any one of those backs, can be a starter or help this team in some way.”
The Dolphins hope Moreno can help the team soon.
