Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) was placed on Reserve/Injured with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Moreno only had one carry in the second half of the game Sunday, Oct. 12, but the team didn't offer an explanation that an injury was the cause.

Week 9: vs San Diego Chargers

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. The Dolphins have taken care of business and beat the teams they should have defeated over the past two weeks, with 24/148/0 rushing at Jacksonville (a 27-13 win) and 33/137/1 rushing at Chicago (a 27-13 win). Lamar Miller remains the lead back with 32/139/1 rushing and 5/43/0 receiving over that time span, with 11/43/0 rushing and 5/37/0 receiving doled out to Daniel Thomas in his change-of-pace role. The Chargers have not taken care of business in the past two weeks, dropping two games straight while allowing 30/139/2 rushing to the Broncos last week and and 39/154/1 rushing to the Chiefs two games ago. Advantage, Miami.

2014 Week 6 vs GB (6 / 10 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Moreno hit the low end of his recovery from a dislocated elbow, returning four weeks to the day after he was injured at Buffalo in Week 2. While he was clearly slowed and distracted by his brace, Moreno still rotated series with Lamar Miller throughout the first half. Joe Philbin didn't hesitate to send Moreno out on the second drive of the game when the Dolphins recovered a punt block in Green Bay's red zone. Unfortunately, Miami ran up-tempo runs on first and second down from inside the 5 and Moreno couldn't punch it in. Then, they went for it on fourth down and again he was stuffed. It was an unfortunate blow to anyone who started him, as he only had three more touches the entirety of the game and was on the sidelines for most of the second half. Lamar Miller isn't going anywhere, but it shouldn't be a huge worry that Moreno was sat down for the rest of the game. He's coming off a somewhat serious injury, and he had been complaining about the bulky arm brace earlier in the week. Miller was running well at the outset of the second half, and the move to sit down Moreno paid off, with the Dolphins scoring a touchdown on their first three offensive possessions of the second half. Moreno and Miller should form a nice duo going forward, and it's possible they both could have weekly value, but their weekly usage may be inconsistent, frustrating fantasy owners.
