Knowshon Moreno Mia - RB
News: Moreno was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a torn ACL, according to the Dolphins' official website. (Oct 14)
Impact: The announcement is very surprising, as there had been no report of Moreno even suffering a knee injury, let alone one that would end his season. Moreno, in his first year with the Dolphins after spending the first five years of his career with the Broncos, suffered a dislocated elbow in Week 2 against the Bills and had just returned last Sunday against the Packers, rushing six times for 10 yards. With Moreno now out for the season, the Dolphins' backfield belongs to Lamar Miller, with Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas battling for backup touches. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 8:59a ET)

Knowshon Moreno Mia - RB
News: Moreno is expected to miss four-to-eight weeks due to a dislocated and possibly fractured elbow, The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports. (Sep 14)
Impact: Further testing may provide more clarity, but all reports indicate that Moreno is facing a lengthy absence, which could perhaps make him a candidate for the IR/designated to return list. Lamar Miller (ankle) also left Sunday's game and failed to return, but his injury is not believed to be quite so serious. Miami's third-string back is Damien Williams, while Orleans Darkwa sits fourth on the depth chart. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 5:43p ET)

Knowshon Moreno Mia - RB
News: Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel suggests that the arthroscopic procedure that Moreno is slated to undergo on his left knee will likely sideline the running back for 5-to-6 weeks. (Jun 23)
Impact: The report, which adds that Moreno's knee needs to be "cleaned up," indicates that his upcoming procedure isn't expected to be invasive. While this is obviously a setback with regard to his chances of claiming the Dolphins' No. 1 running back assignment, the estimated timetable for his recovery would present him with an opportunity to make a case for the job during the preseason.
