AFC West: Steve Slaton

Broncos make move on Willis McGahee

November, 21, 2012
In a procedural move, the Denver Broncos are placing starting running back Willis McGahee on injured reserve with the ability to bring him back for the AFC championship game if the team makes it that far.

This move is essentially a move to add a player to the roster. McGahee suffered a torn MCL in his knee Sunday against San Diego and the team doesn’t think he will be ready to come back for about two months.

The Broncos could add a running back to the roster. Candidates include Jeremiah Johnson from the practice squad and Steve Slaton, who worked out for the team Tuesday.

Monday, we looked at what McGhee’s loss will mean to the team.

CBS Sports reported Denver worked out running back Steve Slaton and the team could sign him if Willis McGahee is put on the injured reserve, McGahee has a knee injury that is expected to keep him out at least six weeks. Still, Denver may want to wait to see if McGahee could come back for the postseason.

Slaton is a smaller back and he wouldn’t necessity help Denver’s need for an inside running presence.
