Hillman active, Moreno is not

DENVER -- Ronnie Hillman, welcome to the NFL. Knowshon Moreno, your brief time in the Denver Broncos’ good graces appears to be over.

Hillman, a third-round draft pick, will make his debut Sunday against visiting Houston. Moreno has been de-activated.

Moreno, a first-round pick in 2009, had a good training camp and preseason in a summer in which many thought he could be cut. He started the season as the backup. But he fumbled last week in Atlanta.

Hillman was inactive the first two weeks because the team didn’t think he could pickup blitzes. Sunday, the explosive Hillman will get his chance.
