Knowshon Moreno says he’s ready to go


There hasn’t been a lot of good news related to running back Knowshon Moreno since he signed with the Dolphins this offseason.

He was overweight during spring work, which left him down the depth chart while Lamar Miller, Daniel Thomas and others got more of the work. Then he needed to have his knee scoped in June, keeping him off the field early in training camp and leaving him inactive for the first two preseason games.

The clouds have started clearing for Moreno, however. He’s been practicing for a couple of weeks and Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that he looked the best he’s looked all summer during Wednesday’s practice. For his part, Moreno said that he feels good and that he feels ready to play against the Cowboys this weekend.

The team will determine his status after watching him work on Thursday, but this would be the week to get Moreno some work if they want him to get up to speed against a starting defense. If that goes well, the Dolphins may reshuffle the depth chart at running back before the regular season because they’ve run for just 104 yards in the first two weeks.

  1. With a lack of push from their OL Miami desperately need a back like Moreno that has the vision to run in a zone blocking scheme. But why rush him back when the games don’t even count?
    Let the OL continue to develop for a couple more weeks then let unleash him when NE comes to town.

  2. Oh wow! Moreno arrived 7 lbs overweight 3 months ago. I’m sure we are doomed by his failure. If anything we are doomed at Center (temorarily) and RG. Even Adrian Pederson would struggle with poor blocking.

  3. While everyone’s favorite teams were sitting on a beach or infront of their TV’s knowshon Moreno was still playing football into the superbowl. The guy amassed 1600 yards last season, and they were TOUGH yards. Don’t kid yourselves that this guy wasn’t a bell cow for the broncos and a constant outlet for peyton. They broke him down all season. So why do people act surprised if the guy is a little dinged up or out of shape in the spring? I think he earned it. Looks like hes coming back full swing into the start of regular season. no surprise there for me.
