Good news out of Dove Valley today — both running back Willis McGahee (knee) and left tackle Ryan Clady (unknown) have returned to practice.
The Denver Post‘s Patrick Saunders reports:
The Broncos’ veteran running back was back on the practice field Tuesday for the first time since he suffered a torn right MCL and compression fracture to his right tibia on Nov. 18. McGahee, however, won’t be eligible to play Saturday when the Broncos host the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC divisional round of the playoffs. McGahee would be eligible to play in the AFC championship game on Jan. 20 should the Broncos get that far. …
Also back on the practice field Tuesday was Pro Bowl left tackle Ryan Clady. He was limited in practice last week with an undisclosed injury.
We won’t know what Clady’s injury is until the league requires the Broncos to release an injury report on Wednesday (not Tuesday, as was previously expected). On a different note, the Broncos signed offensive guard Justin Boren and wide receiver Gerell Robinson to future contracts on Monday.
