Willis McGahee Injury Update: Denver Broncos RB Expects To Practice On Tuesday

The Denver Broncos released a bit of encouraging news on Monday. According to Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post, the team released a hypothetical injury report, as required by the NFL, and included running back Willis McGahee as a limited participant had there been practice.

McGahee had injured his hamstring after just four rushes in Sunday's 17-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. He has been cleared to practice on Tuesday, and should things go all right, he is expected to start on Thursday night against the New York Jets.

McGahee will have a new backup in Lance Ball since Knowshon Moreno was lost for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL. Jeremiah Johnson joined the active roster for the second time this season after the Broncos took him from the practice squad. Johnson had joined the team for Week 2's contest against the Cincinnati Bengals but did not see any playing time.
