When the Broncos face the Bengals to start the season, they might be without the services of the twelfth overall pick in the 2009 draft.
According to Jeff Legwold of the Denver Post, tailback Knowshon Moreno is not expected to be back to 100 percent by the time Week One rolls around.
Even if Moreno's sprained MCL has healed by September 13, Moreno's conditioning likely will keep him on the shelf.
With LaMont Jordan also missing time due to injury, the current starter is veteran Correll Buckhalter, who arrived via free agency after eight years in Philly.
Peyton Hillis also could shift over from fullback, and Darius Walker could get reps, too.
Oh well. At least they still have Jay Cutler Kyle Orton at quarterback.
stay down bitch!
Alex Smith's current 9.8 YPC is one of the lowest marks in the NFL over the last 10 seasons. Only a few QBs have been worse:
Ryan Mallett (9.8), Derek Carr (9.4), Christian Ponder (9.8), Brady Quinn (9.8), Ryan Fitzpatrick (8.6), Brodie Croyle (9.7), Charlie Frye (9.7), Bruce Gradkowski (9.4), David Carr (9.2)
