Texans Vs. Broncos Inactives, Week 3: Knowshon Moreno, Tim Dobbins Out

Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno is on the inactive list for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans. This means rookie running back Ronnie Hillman could see his first NFL action with Moreno out.

Not that Moreno has done much for the Broncos this season, with just 15 yards on eight carries in two games. But he was named the Broncos' No. 2 running back behind Willis McGahee earlier this season, though his fumble last week against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football may have factored into the rookie replacing him this week.

Both third-string quarterbacks, Caleb Hanie for the Broncos and John Beck for the Texans, are inactive for this game. Take a look at the inactive list for both teams.
