Willis McGahee Injury: Denver Broncos RB Aims For Complete Game Against Kansas City Chiefs

The Denver Broncos barely escaped Kansas City with a victory in November, and that was without Willis McGahee for most of the game. This week, McGahee will go up against the Chiefs and he's looking to play the entire game, reports CBS Sports' Lee Rasizer. McGahee dealt with a hamstring issue that game and then had to overcome a knee issue in December. He has been limited since that mid-November game, but he has gone over 1,000 rushing yards for the season.

McGahee has led a resurgent Broncos rushing attack, which hadn't had a 1,000 yard rusher since Tatum Bell did it in 2006. With this game being almost like a playoff game, McGahee wants to do his part to lead the Broncos to a AFC West title for the first time since 2005.
