ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno will miss Sunday's game against Baltimore because of a lingering hamstring injury.

The second-year back has missed the last two games with the injury that he suffered in practice two Thursdays ago, prior to a loss to Indianapolis.

Moreno has 111 yards and two scores on 39 carries this season. He has also caught five passes for 71 yards.

Fullback Spencer Larsen (ankle) will miss his second consecutive game on Sunday.

"Knowshon and Spencer just aren't ready to go and I don't think it is the right thing to do to force them to play before they are ready," Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels said at his Friday press conference.
