Willis McGahee Injury Update: Denver Broncos RB Misses Practice, Ready To Play Vs. Chicago Bears

Denver Broncos running back Willis McGahee missed Wednesday's practice, but he appears ready to go for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears. After sitting out practice with what was listed as a knee injury, McGahee eventually said that he was going to play, reports Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post.

McGahee has sat out Wednesday practices earlier in the season in order to provide his 30-year-old body with extra rest. He has missed only one game this season, not playing in the 45-10 loss to the Detroit Lions. Other than that, McGahee has played through a broken hand and a hamstring injury.

He's held up remarkably well since becoming the team's starting running back in Week 2. He has six 100 yard rushing games this season. His original role was expected to be as a goal line back and to pound the ball on short-yardage situations that Knowshon Moreno was unable to get. As it turned out, Moreno was unable to stay healthy and was inconsistent as well (before a torn ACL ended his season prematurely).
