ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos rank dead last in the NFL in rushing with a paltry 75.4 yards per game. So why are these guys smiling?
Because second-year tailback Knowshon Moreno finally seems to be hitting his stride after a series of setbacks from injuries.
Moreno's right hamstring popped on the first day of training camp and he didn't play in the preseason, then he tore his left hamstring at practice in September and missed three games.
Finally healthy after a bye, Moreno recorded his first career 100-yard rushing game in a rout of Kansas City two weeks ago and he caught a career-high seven passes out of the backfield in a loss at San Diego on Monday night.
