RB Knowshon Moreno and Willis McGahee? left the game against the Chiefs Sunday with injuries in the first quarter and Moreno is unlikely to play when Denver hosts the New York Jets on Thursday night.
Moreno, who had a spectacular, tackler-hurdling 24-yard run on the opening drive, suffered a sprained ligament in his right knee. Moreno will have an MRI exam Monday to determine if there’s a tear, but the initial diagnosis was he will be sidelined for a while. McGahee suffered a strained hamstring on his fourth carry of the Broncos’ opening drive. “I’ll be all right,” McGahee said. “I could have come back in in an emergency situation.”
