And you're not supposed to lose your job because of an injury.

Tell that to Wally Pipp and Drew Bledsoe....

If McGahee can't get all the way back this season, that's one thing. But otherwise, McGahee's your guy even if Moreno has earned a larger share of the carries going forward. I could see Fox going to a 50/50 split or maybe 50/40/10 (with Hillman the 10) assuming Willis gets back for the AFC Championship Game and the Broncos make it that far. Think Moreno will be given the chance to win the job next season, though.

If Moreno keeps playing this well, I doubt McGahee gets a lot of carries if he returns....
