Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno has a torn ACL, according to a tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The Bronco’s back-up injured his knee with 2:18 remaining in the first quarter after a 22-yard run. Moreno had run for 52 yards on just four carries in what was on pace to be his best game of the season.
The former first round pick has run for 179 yards on 37 carries this year, and has no rushing touchdowns. His best year came in 2009-10 when he ran for 947 yards and recorded seven touchdowns on the ground. Moreno currently ranks fourth on the team in rushing behind Willis McGahee, Tim Tebow, and Lance Ball.
