The Denver Broncos official Twitter account has released their Week 9 injury report, confirming that running back Willis McGahee appears to be recovering and preparing for a possible start on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. McGahee was among the six players listed on today's injury report:
TE Julius Thomas
RB Willis McGahee
RT Orlando Franklin
Did not Participate:
FS Quinton Carter
CB Cassius Vaughn
TE Virgil Green
The Broncos offense especially needs the recovery of right tackle Orlando Franklin. Quarterback Tim Tebow has been sacked on nearly 15% of all passing plays, by far worst of any starter in the NFL in 2011. For the Broncos to succeed, they will need to give Tebow more time and keep him from getting skittish.
Starting rookie free safety Quintion Carter missed practice again and will almost certainly miss Sunday's game.
