The good news for Broncos fans is that running back Willis McGahee -- the veritable keystone to their rushing attack -- practiced today. McGahee, who has struggled with injuries all year, but missed only one game, leads the team in rushing yards, sporting 886 yards on the ground while averaging 4.9 per carry.
Rookie sensation Von Miller, who has also appeared on a number of injury reports over the last two months, missed the Bronco’s Week 13 win against the Minnesota Vikings while dealing with his thumb injury. Miller leads the team with 10.5 sacks.
Other notable injuries include WR Eddie Royal (153 receiving yards, 1 TD through 7 starts) and starting left tackle Ryan Clady, who has not missed a start in the 2011 season despite struggling with a knee issue.
