Knowshon Moreno runs during drills as running backs coach Bobby Turner looks on at NFL football training camp in Englewood, Colo.

Moreno, who rushed for 2,734 yards and 30 touchdowns in his two seasons at Georgia, was the 12th overall pick in the draft.

He missed his eighth day of training camp Friday while his agent and the team were hashing out the final details of a five-year deal expected to carry $13 million in guarantees.

Moreno will join the team for Sunday afternoon practice. The Broncos are taking Saturday off.
