The Denver Broncos lost both running backs Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno in the opening minutes of Sunday’s 17-10 victory in Kansas City, but that didn’t stop Lance Ball and Tim Tebow from combining for 139 rushing yards anyway.
Moreno suffered a “mild knee sprain”, ProFootballTalk reports, while no update is yet available on McGahee, who suffered a hamstring injury. Moreno was carted off the field while McGahee stayed on the sideline most of the game, so it’s possible these Broncos will be ready sooner rather than later.
But will “sooner” be soon enough? The Broncos face the New York Jets in four days on Thursday night. Let’s hope these injuries are mild indeed.
