The Broncos' running game was much-improved in Week Six against the Jets, surpassing the 100-yard mark for the first time this season with 145 yards on 37 carries. While the return of RB Knowshon Moreno (12-48 rushing) surely helped, we hear the newfound success could have more to do with an improving offensive line. It seems that rookie OT Zane Beadles has become Denver's guy on the right side, beating out veteran Ryan Harris. While Harris may not be 100 percent, the decision to promote Beadles was made with both health factors and performance in mind, according to a source close to the team. Harris was an All-Pro in 2008 and started 23 consecutive games before suffering a toe injury in ’09 that eventually forced him to go on injured reserve. This season, Harris has been hampered by a high ankle sprain suffered in the preseason, which has allowed Beadles to step in. The change was largely based on the versatility and development of the second-round pick, according to a daily team observer.
