Broncos running back Willis McGahee left Sunday’s game against the Chargers with a knee injury and did not return.
McGahee was off to a good start, with seven carries for 55 yards, but he went down hard when he was tackled on that seventh carry and stayed on the ground in obvious pain. No details were given other than that he hurt his knee.
With McGahee out, Ronnie Hillman got the bulk of the work at running back, and Lance Ball also got an increased workload. Those two would likely share the running back duties going forward if McGahee needs to miss any games.
