Moreno deactivated for Broncos game against Texans
Moreno had a touchdown in the Broncos' opener and drew praise from boss John Elway for his newfound patience following a season that was cut short by a knee injury. He won the backup job to Willis McGahee with a strong training camp.
Moreno fumbled away the ball at Atlanta on Monday night, however, and carried only twice afterward. It was one of four first-quarter turnovers in Denver's 27-21 loss.
Among the Texans' inactives were backup offensive linemen Andrew Gardner and Brandon Brooks.
