Let's review the Broncos' running back situation. Knowshon Moreno, bless his gritty heart, is approaching the point of overworked. He is getting used more than his ripped-apart-and-sewn-back-together knees — two major surgeries in two years — should handle because youngsters Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman have yet to seize the available backup role. A trust issue with ball security has been the problem there. Meanwhile, rookie running back C.J. Anderson has been a game-day inactive member of the Broncos' 53-man roster. Anderson gets his chance Sunday. Undrafted out of California, Anderson will be activated on the Broncos' 46-man game roster for the game against the Mike Shanahan-led Washington Redskins, according to multiple NFL sources.
