Willis McGahee Injury: Broncos RB Sat Out 4th Quarter Since Team Was Losing Big

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox doesn't seem too concerned with what happened to running back Willis McGahee during Sunday's loss to the New England Patriots. McGahee left the game early with a leg injury and returned for just two carries in the third quarter. He didn't play in the fourth quarter because the Broncos were in a deep hole, John Fox told reporters on Monday (reported by Andrew Mason).

Had the game been closer, McGahee surely would have played. At this point, there's no reason to assume that McGahee won't be available for Saturday's game against the Buffalo Bills. However, there's always a chance that we will see McGahee listed on the injury report.

Lance Ball would likely start if McGahee is unable to go. Jeremiah Johnson didn't get any carries outside of his one 25-yard carry at the start of the game.
