On Wednesday, the NFL announced that Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller has been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week.
Against the Chargers on Sunday, Miller notched six tackles, three sacks and two forced fumbles in Denver’s 30-23 win over San Diego. His three sacks and two forced fumbles both represented career highs.
Denver’s backfield was dealt a tough blow on Monday afternoon. Coach John Fox announced that starting running back Willis McGahee suffered a torn medial collateral ligament and compression fracture in his right knee against San Diego on Sunday.
“Willis McGahee did have a ligament tear,” said Fox. ”It’s non-surgical. He’s not on IR at this point. Obviously...
Willis McGahee has been placed on recallable injured reserve by the AFC West-leading Denver Broncos.
The Broncos (7-3) put their 31-year-old running back on the list Wednesday, meaning he can return to practice after missing the final six regular-season games and play in a game after missing two more.
That would bring Denver up to the AFC title game.
McGahee tore the medical collateral...
Mike Adams remembers feeling the pit in his stomach when, instead of going to the supermarket, his mom, his aunt and a few of his six siblings walked around the corner to the church to pick up Thanksgiving dinner.
The volunteers put the cranberry sauce, the turkey, the mashed potatoes and the rest into a shopping cart and little Mike, not even 10 at the time, followed everyone back...

The Broncos worked out former Houston Texans running back Steve Slaton on Tuesday morning. As of Tuesday evening, the Broncos had not yet signed the former West Virginia...
If the Broncos are to make a serious push into the postseason, they'll do so sans their top rusher.

Time to shine Juan…
Well, the news just broke that Willis McGahee has a torn MCL and fractured lower leg and will be out anywhere between 4-8 weeks. Essentially ending his fantasy season. The Broncos will most likely use a committee with Ball and Hillman, but the upside grab is Hillman.
Ball is just a guy. Hillman has shown explosiveness in his limited time spelling McGahee...

RB Ronnie Hillman (Denver)
Percent owned (ESPN): 0.9%
Willis McGahee is going to be out an extended period of time and possibly the season with a broken leg and torn MCL. Ronnie Hillman and Lance Ball will split carries in his absence, but Hillman has by far the most upside of the bunch. He led the duo in carries 12 to 6 against San Diego after McGahee went down and the 3rd round...

Last night we all spent our time focusing on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s performance in his first career start and the implications that it had for Alex Smith (myself included) without considering the impact of Aldon Smith’s equally impressive night. Smith went on a tear against the Bears offensive line recording 5.5 sacks; and this performance begs the...
Not only does Denver Broncos running back Willis McGahee have a torn MCL, he also has a fracture in his leg, according to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports.
On top of Willis MaGahee’s torn MCL @mortreport reported on, he also has a fracture in the leg, which adds to why he’s out 6-8 weeks

With McGahee out 6-8 weeks, he likely won’t be back...
Ronnie Hillman (Denver Broncos)With Willis McGahee out at least 6 weeks, Ronnie Hillman steps into the picture as a potentially solid replacement. We don’t know how much of a time-share he will have with Lance Ball, but I think Hillman is the back who comes out on top in the last few weeks. Peyton Manning knows when to run the ball, and running backs have typically done pretty...
