News: Moreno is expected to be sidelined for at least a month with a left elbow injury, and the team has re-signed Daniel Thomas to shore up the position. Impact: Moreno, the NFL's leading rusher in Week 1, was hurt in the first quarter of Sunday's loss at Buffalo.(STATS, 2:51pm)
Sep 14, 2014
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. 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Moreno suffered a dislocated elbow Sunday against the Bills, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Impact: Moreno is slated to undergo tests to see how long he'll be out, but his injury would appear to open the door for Lamar Miller to head the Dolphins' backfield in the coming weeks, assuming the ankle issue Miller sustained Sunday is minor, as expected. Meanwhile, Damien Williams is a candidate for added backfield work in Moreno's absence.(RotoWire, )

News: Moreno hurt his left elbow on his first carry against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Impact: Moreno didn't return after injuring his left elbow 11 minutes into Miami's 29-10 loss to the Bills.(STATS, 12:50pm)
Sep 14, 2014
News: Moreno suffered an elbow injury during Sunday's game and will not return. Impact: Moreno immediately went back to the Dolphins' locker room, after enduring a gruesome elbow injury. With a return to Sunday's game already ruled out, expect Lamar Miller to carry the bulk of Miami's backfield duties for the remaining time against the Bills.(RotoWire, )
Sep 14, 2014
News: Moreno (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills. Impact: Moreno was limited in practice this week, though there was never an indication that he would miss Sunday's game. He appears to be working in a bit of a tandem-backfield with Lamar Miller, but Moreno has all the upside after his 24-carry, 134-yard, one-touchdown performance in Week 1.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 12, 2014
News: Moreno (shoulder) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Bills. Impact: While Moreno's shoulder issue limited him at practice this week, he should be good to go Sunday against the Bills, working in tandem with Lamar Miller in a timeshare that tilts in Moreno's favor at this stage.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 11, 2014
News: Moreno (shoulder) remained listed as a limited practice participant Thursday, the Dolphins' official site reports. Impact: We would be surprised if Moreno wasn't out there Sunday against the Bills, though an official probable designation come Friday would be reassuring to his fantasy owners.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 10, 2014
News: Moreno (shoulder) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday, the Dolphins' official site reports. Impact: We'll track Moreno's status as the week continues, but so far there has been nothing to suggest that his status for Sunday's game against the Bills is in any danger. Moreno moved past the knee issue that slowed him this summer to record 24 carries for 134 yards and a touchdown this past Sunday against the Patriots, while working in tandem with Lamar Miller, who carried 11 times for 59 yards in the contest.(RotoWire, )
Sep 7, 2014
News: Moreno had 24 carries for 134 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Patriots. Impact: Lamar Miller finished with 15 total touches and a score, but it was Moreno who did the heavy lifting Sunday. He was already having a solid game, before he punched in a four-yard touchdown with under four minutes remaining to put the Dolphins up by 10. Regardless of what the depth chart says, Moreno appears to be the top back in Miami.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Sep 2, 2014
News: Lamar Miller remains listed as the starter at running back over Moreno on the Dolphins' first official depth chart of the regular season, the team's official site reports. Impact: Though Miller remains listed atop the Dolphins' posted depth chart, the reports suggests that both Moreno and Miller should see considerable playing time out of the team's backfield. In any case, until something of a predictable distribution of the team's carries emerges, and that won't be revealed before Sunday's season opener against the Patriots, we'll continue to operate under the assumption that some form of timeshare will be in effect to start the season. Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald maintains that he expects Moreno to emerge as the team's top back, but such a scenario remains speculative for now, given the team's posted depth chart.(RotoWire, )
