Denver running back Willis McGahee (ribs) will likely play Sunday, according to the Denver Post. McGahee practiced fully Thursday after turning in a limited session Wednesday.Fantasy Spin:The Post said McGahee "appears to be on track to play Sunday against Oakland." He'll decide later this week if he'll wear additional padding to protect the ribs but he should be able to handle 15-20 touches against an average Raiders run defense.

Denver running back Willis McGahee (ribs) is listed as probable for Week 4, according to the Denver Post.Fantasy Spin:McGahee left Sunday's game against Houston with injured ribs but he's been fine in practice this week. Even if he wears protection for his ribs he should still be fine to start as a RB2 in 12-team leagues.
Joe Mays won't play this week vs. the Raiders after all.
After it was leaked that Mays was suspended for one game following his helmet-to-helmet collision with Matt Schaub that resulted in the quarterback losing not only his helmet – but a piece of his ear also – the NFL upheld their ruling of suspending Mays for one game. Mays will be barred from the team's facilities...
When the Broncos opened up the Peyton Manning era in the season opener vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers on September 9th, Manning didn't turn the ball over a single time, and it was hard to find anything to criticize about Manning's debut with the 'Orange Crush', as he slowly dissected Pittsburgh's defense, going 19/26 for 253 yards and two touchdowns.
Brian Dawkins has no idea how he'll react Sunday, when he watches his No. 20 jersey formally retired before the Eagles-Giants game at Lincoln Financial Field.
''I've thought about it, and I just don't know,'' he said. ''Will I kick into game mode or will I be a mushy tear machine? I don't know. All I know is it's an awesome thing. Last...
The Denver Broncos insist they're not the NFL's new bad boys.
They've racked up $134,000 in fines already for crossing the line on both tackles and talk and watched three of their players get served with suspension letters from the league office.
They say it's coincidental.
If the NFL upholds his punishment, the Broncos will have to face the Oakland Raiders, the...

You saw it, I saw it, Roger Goodell saw it and my head is still ringing from it four days later. The hit administered by Denver Broncos Linebacker Joe Mays on Houston Quarterback Matt Schaub will be one that Schaub will not soon forget. A portion of the quarterback’s ear was torn off when the helmet was dislodged from his head. Helmets are made to be snug to fit and protect...
An injury report that looked terrible Sunday night isn't quite as bad as the Broncos returned to practice Wednesday morning.
Starting running back Willis McGahee (ribs), cornerback Tracy Porter (knee) and tight end Jacob Tamme (groin), all of whom suffered some sort of injury Sunday against Houston, are on the field, and in full pads, as the team begins preparing for Oakland...
This Sunday, the Eagles will honor their former Safety and fan favorite, Brian Dawkins. On Sunday night, the Eagles will retire the legendary #20 prior to the start of the game. B-Dawk was remebered for his on, and off the field leadership. Brian gave absolutely everything he had, night in and night out. Besides his on field play, and his never give up attitude, Dawkins was...
The punishment wasnt nearly Joe Mays-severe, but still Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller got dinged pretty good by the league office.
Miller was fined $15,750 for a roughing the passer penalty he incurred during the Broncos 31-25 loss to the Houston Texans.
No comment, Miller said, adding he would appeal.
Specifically, the league said Miller unnecessarily drove...
Broncos LB Joe Mays had his one-game suspension upheld yesterday for his brutal helmet-to-helmet hit on Texans’ QB Matt Schaub last Sunday.

The impact of the hit was so great that it sent Schaub’s helmet flying, along with a small piece of his ear lobe. And if you look closely enough in the banner pic above, you just might be able to make out...
This Sunday the Oakland Raiders will be going up against long time rival, the Denver Broncos. The Raiders lead this series overall with a record of 53 wins, 39 losses and 1 tie. The Raiders hope to make that 54 wins this Sunday, but the Broncos will do their best to keep it from happening. [...]
