The Broncos lost RB insurance behind starter Knowshon Moreno on Friday as LenDale White will miss the entire 2010 season with a torn Achilles tendon.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that White, who left Thursday's preseason finale with an injured ankle after a nine-yard run, had torn his Achilles tendon. The Broncos signed White this summer to help back up Moreno after White was released by the Seahawks. Moreno just returned to practice at what he called "80 percent."

White would have had to sit out the first four games of 2010 for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Now, the five-year veteran out of USC will miss the entire season. White's best year came in 2007 when he started all 16 games with the Titans and rushed for 1,110 yards with seven touchdowns.

White, a native of Denver, ran for only 222 yards and zero touchdowns last season with the Titans. Injuries to Moreno and RB Correll Buckhalter have hurt the Broncos' depth at that position. Buckhalter made his preseason debut Thursday night.
