Willis McGahee is questionable
By Bill Williamson
The Denver Broncos listed running back Willis McGahee as questionable to play Sunday against Chicago. He was limited in practice Friday after not practicing earlier in the week. He has said all week that he will play.
Denver rookie linebacker Von Miller is listed as probable with a thumb injury that kept him out against Minnesota last week. He practiced fully on Friday for the first time since suffering the injury against San Diego 12 days ago. Receiver Eddie Royal hasn’t practiced all week with a concussion and he is questionable. I doubt he plays. Tackle Ryan Clady practiced fully on Friday for the first time this week and he is listed as probable with a knee injury.
Meanwhile, the Oakland Tribune is reporting that receivers Jacoby Ford and Denarius Moore were running and doing drills Friday. Both have been out with injuries. Yes, it is a good sign that they are running, but I’d be surprised if the team will be comfortable enough with them playing Sunday at Green Bay. However, they appear on target to play next week against Detroit. As expected, running back Darren McFadden did not practice Friday and he is expected to miss his sixth consecutive game due to a foot injury.

It will forever be Tebow Time for one Broncos fan. And he tells ESPN.com’s Page 2 the reason why. It’s worth reading for a chuckle. Page 2 also came up with this Tebow ditty. Meanwhile, Charles Barkley, yes, Charles Barkley is begging the Bears to beat the Broncos and end the Tebow madness. Hey, Chuck, even if the Bears do win, I have a feeling that won’t stop TebowMania.
