DENVER -- Denver running back Correll Buckhalter went to the locker room with an ankle injury. He is questionable to return.

First-round pick Knowshon Moreno is playing now. Buckhalter had to be helped off the field, but he limped to the locker room on his own.

Buckhalter has had a good season. The Broncos love Moreno, but they love him in tandem with Buckhalter. The rookie is going to have to come up big if Denver has a chance to beat Dallas.

Moreno was just stopped on fourth-and-1 at the Dallas 30 on the final play of the third quarter. Denver used defensive lineman Darrell Reid as his lead blocker. Reid tripped and Moreno was blown up.
