KUSA - Running back Knowshon Moreno is listed as questionable for Super Bowl XLVIII after leaving the game Sunday with a rib injury.
He was limited at practice all week.
"I feel good," he said Friday. "For a lot of people, I don't think an injury will keep you out of a game like this."
Moreno carried the ball 14 times for 59 yards in the AFC Championship Game before being hit by New England linebacker Dont'a Hightower early in the fourth quarter. Though he has solidified himself as the Broncos starting running back, rookie Montee Ball has made significant strides throughout the season.
Being the Super Bowl and also the proximity to his hometown - Moreno attended Middletown High School in New Jersey - it may be surprising not to see him out on the field on February 3.
