Denver Broncos running back Willis McGahee practiced on Wednesday, after being listed as day-to-day by coach John Fox on Tuesday. According to Mike High Sports, McGahee was limited in practice yet says he is ready for the game on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.

"All systems go on my end," McGahee said. "Three days ago, it was a little tough, but today running around, just out there moving, felt pretty good."

McGahee suffered a rib injury in last Sunday's loss to the Houston Texans and was forced to leave the game in the third quarter. He finished with 36 yards on 12 carries and has 213 yards rushing on 50 attempts with two touchdowns through three games this season.

The veteran running back is in his second season with the Broncos, enjoying a career comeback in 2011 after four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. Starting 14 games in 2011, McGahee rushed for 1,199 yards and four touchdowns on 249 carries, earning a Pro Bowl berth at the end of the season.
