The Denver Broncos recently held their Wednesday practices, and running back Willis McGahee was among those participating. It's a step forward for the veteran back, whose currently making his way back after having hand surgery recently.
There's a chance that he could return to the field this week, giving the team more depth at the position after starting Knowshon Moreno at running back last week. Moreno had a season-high 14 carries against the Detroit Lions last week, covering 69 yards.
First reported by MaxDenver.com on their Twitter feed, McGahee was among three Broncos players to return to practice on Wednesday. The other two were tackle Orlando Franklin and tight end Virgil Green, both of whom have been banged up after getting hurt against Detroit.
