Willis McGahee Injury Update: Denver Broncos RB Practices Friday, Listed As Probable

Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post reports Willis McGahee of the Denver Broncos has made progress in his recovery:

@PostBroncos: Good news for Broncos offense: McGahee practiced fully today and is listed as probable vs Raiders.

McGahee, who is undergoing a career renaissance with the Broncos in 2011, broke his hand against the Miami Dolphins in Week 7 and then shortly thereafter required surgery on the injury.

If McGahee is unable to play on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, tailback Knowshon Moreno will continue to carry the load of the Bronco's running -- but it appears increasingly likely McGahee will be cleared to at least split the rushing load with Moreno.

McGahee is currently tied with several other illustrious running backs -- namely Maurice Jones-Drew and Michael Turner -- with 4.5 yards per carry. Getting his production back will no doubt be a helpful distraction for quarterback Tim Tebow, who leads the league with nearly a 15 percent sack rate.

Willis McGahee Injury Update: Denver Broncos RB Practices Again, May Play Sunday

The Denver Post is reporting that Denver Broncos running back Willis McGahee practiced again on Thursday, further increasing his chances of playing this Sunday against division rivals the Oakland Raiders. Though his practice was limited, coach John Fox suggested McGehee could indeed play Sunday.

Willis McGahee, playing in his first year with the Denver Broncos, broke his hand against the Miami Dolphins and shortly thereafter had surgery to repair the damage. McGahee, who had lost both his starting position and productivity with the Baltimore Ravens, had been undergoing a surprise resurgence with the Broncos, rushing for 460 yards through 6 starts, averaging 4.5 yards per carry.

The Broncos will release their official injury report later today, so stay tuned to SB Nation Denver for updates on Willis McGahee and all other Denver Broncos.
