The Denver Broncos pulled off a fourth quarter comeback to force overtime for the victory, but the team lost running back Willis McGahee earlier in the third quarter. After the game, head coach John Fox revealed that McGahee suffered a fractured hand.

McGahee's status won't be updated to Wednesday, but this injury could result in missing a few weeks of play. If he is able to practice with a cast on his hand, he could still play. If he is out for several weeks, Knowshon Moreno will take over as the featured back while Lance Ball will receive some carries. Moreno has struggled through two-plus seasons in the NFL and McGahee was brought in to move Moreno to being the third down back.

The Broncos face the Lions next week at Mile High.
