Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno and OT Ryan Harris have both been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts.

RBs Correll Buckhalter, Laurence Maroney and Andre Brown are expected to share the carries previously handled by Moreno.

OT Zane Beadles will replace Harris at the right tackle spot for the third consecutive week.

The way we see it

Moreno's unexpected injury means the newly acquired Maroney will be thrown into the Broncos' offense quicker than expected. Maroney joined the team last week but did not see any time on the field. Buckhalter has not been very effective so far this season, rushing for just 34 yards on 17 carries. Brown is in the same boat as Maroney, as the recently signed back hasn't seen the field this season.

With a banged up offensive line and starting cornerbacks Champ Bailey and Andre Goodman not being 100 percent, the Broncos will need to play at the top of their game to hang with the Colts on Sunday.
