NFL Injury Report:
When veteran running back Willis McGahee reported to Denver
Broncos minicamp last week he said he was fully healthy. McGahee had been
recovering from a torn medial collateral ligament (MCL) and compression
fracture in his leg, and Paul Klee of The Gazette has it on good authority that
he’s still not fully recovered, despite what he said earlier in camp. This is
what Klee believes ultimately led to the Broncos parting ways with McGahee.
Klee reports that the Broncos don’t believe McGahee is
healthy. The running back skipped voluntary OTAs, but Klee believes coach John
Fox when he said that wasn’t why the team wound up cutting the veteran back.
When McGahee did return, he received only limited carried
during mandatory minicamp. Rather than a roster crunch or moving down the depth
chart, Klee believes this had more to do with McGahee’s health.
It will be interesting to see if this ultimately holds up
McGahee from signing elsewhere, as other potential suitors will likely be
hesitant to bring him in if there are still questions surrounding his leg.

The Denver Broncos won the AFC West last year and easily will be the favorites this year to win the Super Bowl (please don’t sue us NFL).

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, there’s “some sense” that the Denver Broncos and left tackle Ryan Clady can get a deal done by next month.
