Willis McGahee’s quietly impressive comeback season has hit a detour.

A league source tells PFT that the Broncos running back will miss 1-2 weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a broken bone in his hand.

The Tebows Broncos host Detroit this week, and will have to rely on Knowshon Moreno and Lance Ball to carry the load in the backfield. It was telling that Ball received many of the carries Sunday after McGahee was hurt.

McGahee is tenth in the league in rushing yards with 456 on the ground.  Moreno and Ball have 56 yards apiece on the year.
