Broncos running back Willis McGahee was having a nice game, gaining 55 yards on seven carries when he went down with a right knee injury early in the second quarter.
McGahee suffered a knee injury after he gained 8 yards with 13:33 remaining in the second quarter, a run that immediately preceded Peyton Manning’s 13-ayrd touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas. McGahee did not return and will have an MRI on Monday to determine the full extent of the injury.
“It swelled up on him,” said Broncos coach John Fox. “We’ll know more (Monday).”
Ronnie Hillman and Lance Ball finished the game at tailback and combined for 78 yards rushing on 18 carries.
