RB McGahee Suffers Torn MCL and Fractures Leg; Out 6 to 8 Weeks

The Broncos offense took a huge blow on Sunday, as RB Willis McGahee suffered a torn medial collateral ligament in the team’s win at home over the Chargers.

According to Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen of ESPN, it appears that McGahee will be out six to eight weeks. He’s also dealing with a fracture in his leg.

The 31-year-old will probably end up on IR, as it would be a miracle to see him return this season. Expect Ronnie Hillman to get the bulk of the carries moving forward, and Lance Ball will also be in the mix at the RB spot for Denver.
