Willis McGahee Injury Update: Denver Broncos RB Practices Friday, Listed As Probable

Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post reports Willis McGahee of the Denver Broncos has made progress in his recovery:

@PostBroncos: Good news for Broncos offense: McGahee practiced fully today and is listed as probable vs Raiders.

McGahee, who is undergoing a career renaissance with the Broncos in 2011, broke his hand against the Miami Dolphins in Week 7 and then shortly thereafter required surgery on the injury.

If McGahee is unable to play on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, tailback Knowshon Moreno will continue to carry the load of the Bronco's running -- but it appears increasingly likely McGahee will be cleared to at least split the rushing load with Moreno.

McGahee is currently tied with several other illustrious running backs -- namely Maurice Jones-Drew and Michael Turner -- with 4.5 yards per carry. Getting his production back will no doubt be a helpful distraction for quarterback Tim Tebow, who leads the league with nearly a 15 percent sack rate.
