Running back Knowshon Moreno is ready to make his Dolphins debut. He said so Wednesday. And sure enough, Moreno is expected to play Saturday against the Cowboys, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.
Moreno missed all offseason workouts and the first two weeks of training camp while he was recovering from a June knee scope.
Now Knowshon must prove that he deserves a healthy amount of carries in Miami's backfield, which is being led by Lamar Miller right now. This is probably going to turn into a pretty equal timeshare, a fate made worse for fantasy owners with the fact that the Dolphins' offensive line is still really poor. Moreno won't come close to repeating his 2013 career year in Denver. But as a 10th-round pick, he doesn't bear too much risk.
