Late in last Sunday’s win over the Vikings, Broncos running back Willis McGahee suffered a knee injury. As a result, he missed practice Wednesday and Thursday. But he returned to practiced on a limited basis Friday, and he’s officially listed as questionable.
Unofficially, a league source tells PFT that McGahee is expected to play.
McGahee has been one of the unsung heroes in Denver’s push to 7-5, with six 100-yard games. He should receive serious consideration for the comeback player of the year award.
He’d likely prefer a playoff berth. With a win over the Bears on Sunday, the Broncos will move closer to making that happen.
