Knee injury sidelines Willis McGahee

AP

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.

  1. I think they’ll actually give Moreno one more chance to prove himself before turning to the Ball/Hillman combo, if McGahee is going to miss any games, especially with the Chefs coming up, the very small success Moreno has had in the nfl has all come against the Chefs.

  2. ewoods6: if that were the case they probably would have released him already. One thing the Broncos do not have is depth at RB, when choosing between Moreno, Ball, Hillman, Jeremiah Johnson (practice squad) and other unsigned players, Moreno is sadly the best of a bunch of bad options.

    cuda: you’re aware the trade deadline was after week 8 right? Unless Gerhart was suddenly released and I completely missed it your prognostication is probably incorrect.

  3. Hey atwater….if they valued Moreno more than Hillman than why is Hillman the #2 and Moreno a healthy scratch every week????? What sense would it make to bring Moreno in to start when he hasn’t played in weeks? C’mon…

  4. Yea the Moreno suddenly starting comment was just as dumb as the Gerhart comment. Apparently some people who post here don’t even watch football, on another article someone was posting about Vincent Jackson being a great player on the Chargers this year. C’mon Man!
