Raiders Vs. Broncos Injury Update: Willis McGahee Says Broken Hand Won't Hinder Him

The Oakland Raiders might be without their top running back on Sunday, while the Denver Broncos might be on the way to getting theirs back. Advantage to the men in orange?

Willis McGahee has been somewhat limited in practice, but he's starting to show signs that he'll be ready for action this weekend.

Having McGahee play could significantly help out Tim Tebow in trying to generate things for the Broncos offense, an offense that struggled to put any points on the board last Sunday. Tebow does like to find McGahee as the dumpoff option in the passing game to help generate steady movement down the field, a huge key to victory. Couple that with the loss of McFadden, and Denver could have a strong shot at pulling out the upset on Sunday.

Here's a look at other injuries from Thursday concerning the Raiders and the Broncos.
