Report: Knowshon Moreno Has 'Serious' Right Hamstring Injury, Receiving MRI Today

With Broncos coach Josh McDaniels predictably mum about Knowshon Moreno's leg injury, fans have been left to speculate about Moreno's condition given the scant amount of information available--mainly that his knee may have appeared to buckle upon his injury. It doesn't take much of a leap in logic to start wondering if Moreno had torn his ACL,which would certainly end his 2010 season right now.

Fortunately for Moreno, the Denver Post is adamant that his right knee is fine. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for his right hamstring. Per our Broncos blog Mile High Report, Moreno's hamstring injury could keep him out for at least the rest of camp: 

FInal word has yet to come from the Broncos regarding Knowshon Moreno, but it is sounding more and more like he sustained a 'serious' hamstring injury. While good news that it is not a knee, reportedly, a hamstring for a running back could be just as bad - especially if it is torn.

Some around here are saying 6 weeks, which would have Knowshon back in time for the Jacksonville game(42 days away from today).

Fox 31 reporter Josina Anderson corroborates this information, reporting that Moreno is scheduled for an MRI on that hamstring at the local hospital this afternoon.
