The Denver Broncos may be without running back Willis McGahee for six to eight weeks. ESPN reports that McGahee has a torn MCL. Fox’s Jay Glazer adds that the star runner also has a broken leg. Denver’s offense had been looking strong in recent weeks as Peyton Manning and company have gotten into sync. The injury will end McGahee’s season but may be able to make it back to the post season, should Denver not place him on injured reserve. Ronnie Hillman is now the Broncos’ early-down back, with the lead-footed Lance Ball in line to handle passing downs. The Broncos will work out free agents on Tuesday. Denver could bring McGahee back next season at a price tag of $2.5 million but given that he recently turned 31 that is hardly a given.
