Willis McGahee and Knownshon Moreno haven’t exactly been the 1-2 combination John Fox was hoping for early this season.
Moreno hasn’t stayed healthy (again) and McGahee is averaging 2.9 yards-per-carry as the team’s primary back. Moreno returned to practice this week, but he’ll stay in a reserve role according to the Denver Post.
Denver wanted to sign DeAngelo Williams this offseason, but settled for McGahee.
The Broncos also hope to get Elvis Dumervil, Champ Bailey, and linebacker D.J. Williams back this week.
