When the Dolphins brought in Knowshon Moreno to help their running back group there was a mixed reaction from the fan base wondering if Knowshon’s prior success in Denver was largely due to playing with Peyton Manning. That being said it was pretty much assumed that Knowshon would be the number one running back heading into week one. It pretty much has been all downhill from there as it was reported that Moreno showed up to camp with a little too much extra weight around his belly and that he was lining up with the 3rd and 4th team behind even Daniel Thomas. The curious case of Knowshon Moreno had many wondering early at camp if he was even a lock to make the roster.  Reports from the Sun Sentinel were that Moreno might be dealing with some medical issues. V conceivable #Dolphins bought damaged goods with Knowshon, who never looked right after 37-carry game vs NE & generated scant FA interest. — Evan Silva (@evansilva) June 20, 2014   This morning we found out that Moreno might be facing arthroscopic surgery on the knee, but that it’s nothing significant at this point. Even if the surgery is minor this surely isn’t how Knowshon wanted his career to start in Miami. Knowshon who signed a 1 year prove it deal has now clearly fallen behind Lamar Miller as the week one starter. At this point however the greater concern for Dolphins fan is whether Daniel Thomas will ever go away as the news of a Moreno surgery favors his odds of staying with the team.
