Dolphins linebacker Dannell Ellerbe faced a lot of questions about Knowshon Moreno Wednesday.

(On RB Knowshon Moreno) – “We were kind of cool before he signed at Georgia, but he’s a guy with a lot of energy. He will bring a lot of electricity to the game. He’s a fighter. He’s a good player. He’s athletic. I was a fan since college.”

(On RB Knowshon Moreno being an emotional player) – “Oh yeah, he loves the game.”

(On if he knew RB Knowshon Moreno in high school) – “No I didn’t know him in high school. I just knew him when he came on his visit.”

(On how RB Knowshon Moreno looked at practice today) – “Just to see him in pads is a blessing to me. I’m ready for him to get healthy and get out there on the field and help this team.”

(On what he’s seen from RB Knowshon Moreno when he’s gone against him at practice) – “He was very elusive and I believe now that he’s gotten to the league, he’s added more power to his game. I’m looking forward to him playing on my team again.”

(On if this the first time he’s worked on the JUGS machine after practice) – “No, I’ve been working on the JUGS since last year. I actually reached out to Derrick Brooks and I asked him how to get all the interceptions like he did. He told me to catch 25 balls after practice every day, so I’ve been catching 30.”

(On if he has a nickname for RB Knowshon Moreno) – “No, I don’t. I just call him Know- Know.”

(On RB Knowshon Moreno as a receiver) – “Oh yeah, he can catch passes too. He can get out of the backfield. He’s good in routes. He’s an all-around player to me.”

(On if he is excited about Friday to play at Atlanta) – “I’m excited to get my feet wet up under the lights and on TV again. Being that they are on Hard Knocks, so I know this game will make TV. It’s going to be on HBO.”
