Fox: Moreno to IR

Posted Nov 14, 2011

Denver running back will be placed on injured reserve after suffering knee injury vs. Chiefs. As a result, Jeremiah Johnson has been signed to the active roster.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Head Coach John Fox announced today that Knowshon Moreno will miss the remainder of the season due to an ACL injury suffered in Kansas City.

Moreno was injured during the Broncos' second offensive series against the Chiefs when he was swarmed by defenders after a 22-yard gain.

“He’ll be out for the season. We’ll place him on IR,” Fox said. “It was an ACL injury that’s going to require surgery.”

“You never like to see a player get a hurt and I feel for him because he has battled,” he added. “He had the hamstring early in the season and he battled back from that. He was having a really good day but he’s tough-minded and he’ll battle back from it.”

With Moreno heading to injured reserve, the Broncos have signed running back Jeremiah Johnson to the active roster from the practice squad.

"The upside with Jeremiah is that he's been with us," Fox said. "He knows the teammates and he's been giving our defense a real good look and been helpful in getting us better against the run."

Johnson, a second-year running back, was active in the Broncos' Week 2 win against the Cincinnati Bengals, making his NFL debut on special teams.

He spent his rookie season in Houston, and has also spent time on the practice squads of Carolina -- under Fox -- and Washington.

In four seasons at the University of Oregon, Johnson rushed for 2,336 yards and 30 touchdowns.

The team filled the practice squad spot vacated by Johnson with the addition of running back Xavier Omon.

Omon -- who will wear No. 33 with the Broncos -- played in seven games in the 2008 and 2009 seasons with the Buffalo Bills, running 11 times for 27 yards.

He has also spent time on the practice squads of the Seattle Seahawks, New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers and most recently the Cleveland Browns.
