Willis McGahee Injury Update: Denver Broncos RB Expected To Play Vs. Chicago Bears, According To Report

Though he is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears, Denver Broncos running back Willis McGahee is fully prepared to play, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. McGahee missed the first two days of practice with a knee injury before returning to the practice field on Friday afternoon.

McGahee has proven that he was capable of resurgence as a 30-year-old running back in the league after down years in Baltimore the previous two seasons. He has six 100-yard rushing games this season and is on pace to crack 1,000 yards for the first time since 2007.

If McGahee doesn't play or has reduced carries in the game, expect Lance Ball and Jeremiah Johnson to split carries. And, of course, plenty of Tim Tebow using his legs.
