Report: Moreno has 'slight tear,' out 2-3 weeks

Posted on: August 1, 2010 9:32 pm
Knowshon Moreno's hamstring injury from Sunday's practice has had Broncos fans sweating bullets all afternoon.

But if Vic Lombardi's report on Twitter is accurate, they can probably breath a (small) sigh of relief.
The news gets better. From what I'm told, Moreno suffered a slight tear - basic strained hammy. 2-3 weeks. Only his hammy really knows Moreno -- and the Broncos -- aren't necessarily out of the woods yet, of course. Hamstring injuries aren't exactly the type of thing that go away quickly, and it's entirely possible that this will impede him once the season actually starts.

More good news came down too from Broncos camp: Correll Buckhalter is supposedly "fine" and that means the Broncos' running back depth chart hasn't been completely obliterated before the season even starts.

In other Denver-related training camp news , Tim Tebow is apparently quite popular -- he hit Matthew Willis for a 40-yard pass and fans went bonkers in the stands. They then followed it up by chanting "Tebow! Tebow! Tebow!" as he stretched towards the end of practice.

Report: Moreno has 'slight tear,' out 2-3 weeks

Westbrook should be getting a call this week.  I don't think they can wait around to see what the options are on guys getting released.  And there are a few teams that would be willing to bring in Westbrook, McDaniel better make up his mind.  I don't think he's giving any information willingly (ala Bellichek), so this could be far worse in reality.

Report: Moreno has 'slight tear,' out 2-3 weeks

I'm going to start by saying I'm a broncos fan

Knowshon isn't even good when he is healthy. Maybe he will average 1.5 yards a carry with this nagging hammy all year.

Report: Moreno has 'slight tear,' out 2-3 weeks

So if it's a slight hammy tear, why does the headline say slight knee tear!? Big difference! Gotta love the "professionals" at CBS!
