The Broncos' leading rusher suffered the injury after San Diego cornerback Quintin Jammer struck him in the knee with his helmet.
With McGahee out, Ronnie Hillman and Lance Ball will share snaps at the tailback position.
The Broncos also have Knowshon Moreno on their 53-man roster and Jeremiah Johnson on their practice squad.
