Per a tweet from NFL Insider Jay Glazer, the Denver Broncos have placed running back Willis McGahee on season-ending injured reserve (IR): McGahee was drafted in 2003 in the first round of the NFL draft by the Buffalo Bills, but sat out the entire 2003 season due to a knee injury in the Fiesta Bowl. When he returned in 2004, he strung together three straight 1,000 yard seasons. After the 2006 season, the Bills traded McGahee to Baltimore Ravens for two third draft picks and a seventh round pick because he made disparaging comments about the city of Buffalo. After four seasons with the Ravens, including a Pro Bowl year in 2007, McGahee signed with a 3-year, $9.5 million contract with the Broncos in 2011, and he made the Pro Bowl in his first year with the team. Prior to his injury,among running backs  McGahee was 11th in total yards (731), 20th in yards per attempt (4.4), 16th-T in touchdowns (4), and 12th in yards per game (73.1). For his career, McGahee has rushed for 8,097 yards and 63 touchdowns. He also has 202 receptions for 1,319 yards and five touchdowns.
