Running back Willis McGahee, who overcome a decade ago one of the most gruesome knee injuries in football history to become a steady and productive running back, has another knee injury.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, McGahee doesn’t believe the injury is serious.

He’ll likely have an MRI on Monday to gauge the specific condition of the knee and any associated ligaments and cartilage.

If McGahee can’t play, he’d likely be replaced by Ronnie Hillman.  The backup would be Lance Ball.  At the bottom of the depth chart is former first-rounder Knowshon Moreno.
