Knowshon Moreno’s knee may keep him off the field this year

Knowshon Moreno was off to a promising start last season with the Dolphins, carrying 24 times for 134 yards in a Week One win over the Patriots. And then he did nothing the rest of the season. And he may do nothing this season, either.

Moreno, who played in only two more games and ran for just 14 more yards after that great Week One performance before suffering a season-ending knee injury, may not be able to play at all this season. Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that Moreno won’t be playing football this year because his knee isn’t right.

Although the 27-year-old Moreno became a free agent in March, there’s been no buzz about any team having any interest in signing him, which suggests that the knee injury is indeed a major issue. Moreno has a history of knee injuries and also suffered a torn ACL in 2011.

Moreno made $3 million on a one-year contract with the Dolphins last season. He had his best season in 2013, carrying 241 times for 1,038 yards and 10 touchdowns with the Broncos.

  1. Might never get a shot sadly enough; I really liked him but if no one thinks he’s worth it this year and he’ll be 29 when the season starts next year at the RB position (b-day in july), hard to imagine a team picking him up.

    Very underrated running back over the years shame to see this happen.

  2. Sure hope he saved some of that $3M. I know a lot of folks who worked for 50 years and never made $2M or anywhere close to it. Good luck to Moreno.

  3. Hate seeing this happen to good players and I’m a Raiders fan admitti this. Hate on me for it, idc. Dude had a decent little run…played in a Super Bowl, was a high draft pick, made a lot of money. Could always be worsw. Plus, he seems like a smart dude, so he’ll do alright for himself.

  4. He made $16mil with the Broncos before last year so he shoooould be able to afford to take some time away.

    Really? Never got a shot? The name No Show mean anything to you? He got a shot, and a new clip. History is more than a browser tab boy.

  6. I’ve also heard not-so-swavory things about him as a person.

    It’s just heresay, obviously, but I’ve heard multiple times throughout the years about episodes such as the team plane incident with a corporate sponsor and his “do you know who I am schtick” to the cops during his DUI. Allegedly.

  7. This is why I side with the players who want to get paid. One hit and you’re on the trash heap. They lose your phone number quick.

  8. Poor guy. Great football player. With the Dolphins or not, I hope the man gets to return.

  9. 3 million for one game? To watch him dominate the Pats and get the win, every penny of that 3 mil was well worth it!

  10. Man, he was GREAT beating up on the Patstricks last season!

    And did it without cheating!

    Freudian slip of the troll tongue, “Even here in Denver”. By the way fake Dolphin fan, the Dolphins released him in March. At least read the article.
