knee sprain is what they are calling it, which will mean a mild tear at least more than likely

MRI to come...kinda' makes the 3 picks seem like a good day doesn't it

in my experience the less painful it looks the worse it is. cross your figures. he walked off and just adjusted the knee pad, maybe he never felt the tear? didnt look bad at all, but it doesnt have to.

No he was hurt on his second run... just watched it again and again. Nothing unusual about the run, just an out of shape player that should have been pulled after a couple runs. Here's what's going down right now:

11:32 ET
Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno hurt his right knee in the second quarter and Denver coach Josh McDaniels is facing scrutiny that he might have left him in for a play after the injury.

yeah he took a blow to the knee on that run, didn't look to bad but he came up limping and stayed in for a play after that and I don't know honestly it could be bad but it didn't look bad.....

hopefully its a mild injury and nothing that keeps him out long.

but knee sprains are always scary.

As I understand it, a sprain is a tear - just a question of severity. In my uneducated opinion, it's either an MCL which is 2-4 weeks or an ACL which is the season. Can anyone else confirm?

First off Lou from Littleton is a Ra-tard, second I think any trainer would ice any kind of contusion so that doesn't tell me anything. Didn't O Gary play a quarter with a torn ACL?

I don't care if Lou is a "Ra-tard" or a genius, nor do I know what a trainer would or should do. And what Gary did in a game many years ago is irrelevant to this situation.

What I am saying is that a guy that was actually in the locker room after the game told a radio personality that it may have been a bruise, but the MRI will confirm.

If you want to believe the worse, so be it. I choose to be optimistic until confirmed, one way or the other.

Sigh... I think this is one of the main reasons that Shanny was so averse to taking a running back in the 1st round. Sometimes it works out well, but more often than not, they are out of the league in 3-4 years due to the extreme punishment that you take playing that position.

Let's hope that our boy is more Emmit Smith than Ki-Jana Carter, and everything will be A-OK tomorrow....

If the guy is hurt, he shouldnt be playing, whether thats after one carry or 20. And while Ive seen comments that people dont think it mattered in terms of worsening the injury, the fact is, no one knows this. Moreno staying in could have worsened the injury for all anyone knows at this point. For all anyone knows, it could have made the difference between being out a week or two to being out the season. Again, its simply not known at this point but a lot of the comments downplaying the significance of keeping him in there is living in denial.

I was so hoping McD would have been to find a way to get Cassel this season or next season. I mean afterall the Cassel talks over the phone is what caused Cutler to want to traded! McD needed Cassel like Shanny needed Elway for success.

McD has got to find a highly intelligent/skilled Franchise QB or he won't be successful in Denver over the next two years....plain and simple.

The horrible fact is, to get a top 5 Franchise QB coming out of the draft we fans must possible endure 2 consecutive 4 or 5 win season.......that ain't going to be pretty.

Knowshon Moreno left the game with a sprained knee, according to CBS4Denver, which broadcast the game locally. Moreno will have an MRI Saturday. The Broncos would be devastated if Moreno, who was effective when he played, had to miss significant playing time. If it is just a sprain, Moreno should be ready for the start of the regular season.

I am kinda glad that X and McDaniels don't. I found both of them over-hyped and think don't project well as QBs in NFL. They are very good college QBs, but I think that playing on teams that so much physical better then their opponents makes folks think they are better then they are. When you have 6 to 8 seconds to throw due to very good offense lines and play in spread offense that makes a lot of folks believe that they are better then then are for the pro-game. I am more pissed off that we don't have a chance at Berry, Mays, Dunlap or Cody. All are major play makers that project as solid starters in the league.

BTW my pro QB current list

1. Snead (top 5)
2. Hiller WMU (15 to 32 range)
3. Bradford (mid 2nd)
4. Dan LeFevour (mid to late 2nd)
5. McCoy (3rd round)
6. Rusty Smith (3rd to 4th)
7. Pike (4th to 5th)
8. Juice Williams (5th to 7th)
9. Clausen (ND) (2nd/3rd on physical talent, but later if doesn't improve decision making)
10. Tebow (late 2nd/early 3rd if the wildcat stays in vague)

Also if Locker (WU) learns the pro style game under Steve Sarkisian I could see him being a solid 3rd rounder that would be extremely interesting

No.. it was not 1 carry. He got injured on his second carry. After the 2nd INT he came back in and played the 3rd series. The pass play that Orton got picked off when he tried to throw long, Moreno is the RB that got called for the chop block.

With our luck, I wouldn't be surprised if it was an ACL injury. That is just our luck and I can't expect anything better at this point.

But, watching the play over and over and over... It does look like it would be a bruise and not a tearing type injury. It looked like he banged the knee rather than tearing something. I'm guessing he'll be out two weeks and be able to play in the pre-season finale.

More importantly, what is McD going to do about the QB position. The best thing that could have possibly happened to Orton last night is that he sucked away from Denver. Had he been in Mile High, it would have been terribly ugly.

I dont think so. I think he is like our not so secret weapon. We make is seem like he is 3rd stinger rb, 1st team FB. But when the real games come along he and Knoshon are going to chewing up defenses left and right.

Knowhon comes in games, runs for yards and tds and tires the defense out, while they chase him around. And then in the late 3rd/4th. Hillis comes in and does exactly what Mcdaniels said he wants to do. Beat up opposing defenses. Once they are all tired of chasing knowshon, hillis comes in and just beats the piss out of them.

I think it's entirely legitimate to ask whether it was a good idea to play a guy who just walked into camp a few days later, especially when we knew he was going to be on the team. It's not like he was fighting for a job and had to get seen by the coaches. I think they should have waited till next week to let him get into game shape.

Lou from Littleton is a complete homer that just uses stats for arguments. I have called him up a couple times after some bad losses to SD and he was excited and hopeful spitting out empty stats.

Remember Seattle gets the lower of the two draft picks next year. I guess there is a chance that both Denver and Chicago suck and both have top 10 picks. If Cutler goes down Chicago will suck for sure with no proven backup QB.


No Seattle gets our pick not the Bears pick.

Moreno's injury is the least of Denver's problems.

False.

Good thing we signed Marcus Thomas. I know that sounds like a joke, but he played for my college team. I want to see him play, but not at the cost of having Knowshon injured. Hopefully he is alright.

Jesus, calm down everyone. Moreno can't be seriously injured.

They've been stretching a lot in training camp!!!!!!!!!

Seattle gets Denver's natural 2010 first rounder which will be a top 5.

Yep just like a couple years ago when everyone was bitching that Denver didn't trade with Cleveland so they could draft quinn and would be guaranteed a top 5 pick in the draft. Seriously if Cutler gets hurt the Bears will be terrible.

First off Lou from Littleton is a Ra-tard, second I think any trainer would ice any kind of contusion so that doesn't tell me anything. Didn't O Gary play a quarter with a torn ACL?

Tom (Lou from Littleton) is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. You may not like his style but I think it's a little class-less to call someone you don't know a retard.

Knowshon popped it on his 2nd run. So anyone bitching that he was in there too long is stupid.

I blame Knowshon's agent if this lingers and ruins his career.

Anyone know when the MRI is supposed to take place today, or when we should hear some news on the severity?

You do realize that this is orangemane right? Bowlen's a drunk, Cutler's a crybaby, Marshalls a asshat and anyone who disagrees with me is a ****ing clueless asshole.

It's past noon in Denver.
What's the dealio with the results of the morning MRI?

Lou from Littleton is a complete homer that just uses stats for arguments. I have called him up a couple times after some bad losses to SD and he was excited and hopeful spitting out empty stats.

I honestly have no idea what that has to do with my post that Alan Roach(who was in the locker room) told Lou from Littleton that Moreno was not on crutches after the game, nor was he icing it down. He (Roach) said that the thought was it may have been just a knee bruise.

Now Roach may be wrong after the MRI comes out, but Lou's homerism is irrelevant.

Calm down, Veruca.

Scares the living hell out of you.....doesn't it! We could see some bad JU JU befall this organization and we blame it all on what transpired btwn Dec - Mar 2009.

Yeah, and judging by what I saw on Friday, if Royal gets hurt the Broncos might not win a single game.

Injuries can derail ANY team. If Brady goes down again this year who will take over there? He Who Shall Not Be Named , Royal , Marshall are all examples of key players that would have a severe negative impact if they went down. Adrian Peterson, LT, Roid boy (chargers) are others.

But if you have a "system" in place that doesn't put TOO much emphasis on
any ONE guy, and the overall talent level is adequate you can survive it without dropping off too much, and still win. NE did that last year, although
they ended up not making the playoffs. Tough break for them (and us the year WE ended up out after a 11-5 record too), but thats the rules.

Actually I think that we may just have found enough receiver talent that losing either Royal or Marshall this year may not have that much effect. Both would be a disaster.

Almost every year it seems like some WR makes a name for himself in TC. This year it's McKinley and to a lesser extent Lloyd.

Dare I say neither will be effective come regular season?

Gaffney may be good but if he's opposite Stokely I think this team is in for a long season. BMarsh is the glue that will hold the WR corps together. Add a healthy Royal to the equation and this is the deepest WR group in the NFL.

However, if both Royal and Bmarsh go down with injury, yah, not good...

Sigh... I think this is one of the main reasons that Shanny was so averse to taking a running back in the 1st round. Sometimes it works out well, but more often than not, they are out of the league in 3-4 years due to the extreme punishment that you take playing that position.

Let's hope that our boy is more Emmit Smith than Ki-Jana Carter, and everything will be A-OK tomorrow....

First thing that comes to mind. This is exactly the reason taking a RB in the 1st round is such a huge risk.

Even the good ones generally don't have very long careers. Better to build up a spectacular line, a good complement of receivers, a QB that can move around and stretch the field, a FB that can catch the ball as well as pound it, and then take gambles with lower picks, low round RBs work out as often as they don't.
