Knowshon Moreno's injury-plagued career has taken another turn - this time to the Injured Reserve list.  The Broncos running back tore the ACL in his knee during yesterday's 17-10 win over the Kansas City Chiefs and will require surgery.

Broncos head coach John Fox made the announcement during his weekly press conference earlier on Monday. 

"I feel for him," said Fox. "He battled and was having a really, really good day. It's unfortunate.I feel for him. He battled .... and was having a really, really good day. It's unfortunate."

The Broncos will likely bring running back Jeremiah Johnson up from the practice squad to take Moreno's spot on the roster, especially considering the Broncos have a short week to prepare for Thursday night's home game against the New York Jets.

Fox also gave an update on the team's other injured running back, calling Willis McGahee 'day-to-day' with a hamstring injury he suffered in the 1st quarter against the Chiefs.  The Broncos will return to the practice field on Tuesday.
