Denver running backs Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter have both been injured on the Broncos' first day of training camp.

Moreno was carted off the field after hurting his right leg Sunday, and Buckhalter injured his left leg minutes later.

About an hour into the workout, Moreno caught a pass in 7-on-7 drills and turned upfield when his leg buckled. He grimaced as he hopped into the team's headquarters for tests.

According to reports out of Denver, an MRI revealed that Moreno did not suffer a torn hamstring, but likely a severe strain.

Buckhalter hurt his leg about 10 minutes later during the same drill and limped off on his own.

The Broncos traded veteran running back J.J. Arrington to Philadelphia on the eve of camp. They had no immediate word on the extent or nature of the injuries to Moreno and Buckhalter.
