Moreno, Vickerson, DRC set for MRIs
By Jeff Legwold
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The Denver Broncos left Gillette Stadium with some injury concerns to go along with a gut-wrenching 34-31 overtime loss to the New England Patriots, including to running back Knowshon Moreno.
Cornerback Omar Bolden suffered a concussion in punt coverage late in the game and will be subject to the league’s protocol in the coming days. Defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson suffered a right hip injury while cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie injured his shoulder trying to field a Hail Mary attempt on the last play of the first half.
Vickerson and Rodgers-Cromartie are expected to get MRIs Monday after the team returns to Denver. Moreno, who suffered a lower right leg injury in overtime, was using crutches to go to and from the trainer’s room following the game. He left the stadium using a walking boot.
Moreno, who rushed for a career-best 224 yards on 37 carries in the overtime loss, is expected to get an MRI as well.
