Knowhon Moreno injury sidelines Miami running back

Miami Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno has been injured in the team's game against the Buffalo Bills.

The first quarter injuries for the Miami Dolphins continue this week against the Buffalo Bills. After seeing linebackers Koa Misi and Dannell Ellerbe leave the game last week against the New England Patriots with first-quarter injuries, it now appears running back Knowshon Moreno may be joining that group this week.

Moreno ran the ball in the first quarter against the Bills, converting a first down on the carry. As he was tackled, however, his left elbow appeared to bend backwards as he was hit from behind. He immediately began rolling around on the ground holding his arm.

After trainers came on the field to check out the injury, Moreno walked off the field cradling his arm. He immediately went to the locker room.

Lamar Miller will replace Moreno, who has been officially ruled out of the game. Moreno entered the game as the NFL's leading rusher.
