Lions Vs. Broncos Injury Update: Willis McGahee, Brady Quinn Among Inactive Players

Sunday's game between the Detroit Lions and the Denver Broncos begins soon, and the Broncos recently announced on Twitter that seven players will be inactive for the game, including running back Willis McGahee and quarterback Brady Quinn. Also inactive for the game are safety Rafael Bush, fullback Quinn Johnson, guard Manny Ramirez, tackle Tony Hills and defensive end Derrick Harvey, at least among Broncos players.

McGahee is the primary loss for Denver here, as he's been the main running back for the Broncos most of this year and played pretty well, rushing for 457 yards over his past five games. He's expected to be out for a while, though, so the Broncos are starting former first-round pick Knowshon Moreno in his place.

Safety Rahim Moore is also at less than 100 percent, so the Broncos are starting Quinton Carter in his place. Moore is active for today's game, but will not be in the starting lineup.
