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.
