Running back Willis McGahee participated in the portion of practice open to the media on Tuesday. The ninth-year pro left Sunday’s game against the Chiefs after suffering a hamstring injury in the first quarter.
“He was cleared to come back into the game, but we weren’t going to put him in there unless it was an emergency situation all in part to have him ready for this Thursday,” Head Coach John Fox said on Monday. “I think it obviously helped. Whether or not it will come to fruition, I’m not sure, but he’s a guy that we’d like to have healthy Thursday night.”
McGahee leads the team with 640 rushing yards, including a season-high 163 yards in Denver’s 38-24 win at Oakland in Week 9. He has topped the 100-yard mark in four games this season, which ties him for the third most in the league this season.
Linebacker Wesley Woodyard and cornerback Cassius Vaughn were also present at the beginning of practice on Tuesday — both were inactive on Sunday with knee and hamstring injuries, respectively. Every player on the roster participated in practice on Tuesday.
