Knowshon Moreno, who had been sidelined after recovering from surgery he had several months ago, was extremely impressive in his debut with the Miami Dolphins.
On his very first carry, he ran for 19 yards. He had several more nice runs after that and finished the night with 10 carries for 64 yards. The entire team rushed for 200 yards with a 5.7 yards per rush average. Previously, the Dolphins had only rushed for 98 yards on 47 carries, which was ranked the worst in the league.
“I feel like in this game, you’re never 100 percent, but I feel good enough to compete, be productive and help this team,” he said. I’m a patient guy and I just let things happen, let things flow,” he said. “Whenever my opportunities come, I just try to take advantage of it.”
Head Coach Joe Philbin agrees that Moreno ran well and whether he likes it or not, he may have a running back controversy on hism hands.
“Yeah he ran the ball well,” Philbin said. “We had really good production, good balance.”
