Maroney expected to get bulk of load

Good analysis here by Jeff Legwold in the Denver Post today regarding the Broncos options in the running game considering No. 1 RB Knowshon Moreno – who injured his hamstring before last weekend’s game and didn’t practice at all this week – is out.

Without Moreno, expect Laurence Maroney – who rushed 12 times for a team-high 24 yards last week in his first appearance in a Denver uniform – to get the bulk of the carries.

From the Post:

Maroney, because of his history in McDaniels' offense in New England, figures to get the start again and do the bulk of the early-down work. McDaniels sees Maroney as more of a run/receiving option than (Correll) Buckhalter.

Buckhalter will play in the team's third-down package as well as in most hurry-up situations. Buckhalter was in the hurry-up drives against the Colts just before the half and at the end of the game when the Broncos stayed in their three-wide-receiver set.

McDaniels likes Buckhalter as a runner, but the Broncos have been careful in monitoring his workload given how much time he missed in training camp because of a neck/back injury.

Because FB Spencer Larsen (ankle) also won’t play, TE Dan Gronkowski will fill that role when Denver goes into its two-back set. Last week, he split time between tight end and fullback, so this week, he should be better prepared to handle his somewhat-unfamiliar position.
