Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno said Friday that he expects to play on Super Bowl Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.

Moreno suffered a rib injury in the fourth quarter of last week's AFC Championship game win against New England. His X-ray results were negative, and he was limited in practice this week. From USA Today's report:

"It feels good, getting better. I'll be ready to go," Moreno said.

"I've had things like this before and it hasn't really stopped me."

Moreno said he didn't expect to need any additional padding when he plays against the Seahawks. He was one of three Broncos listed as questionable this week on Denver's injury report -- a formality, even though there are no games this week. Including the postseason, the running back has 1,039 yards and 10 touchdowns this year.
