Broncos running back Willis McGahee will miss 1-2 weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a broken bone in his hand.
The Broncos host Detroit this week, and will have to rely on Knowshon Moreno and Lance Ball to carry the load in the backfield. It was telling that Ball received many of the carries Sunday after McGahee was hurt.
As the story indicates, Ball did get carries over Moreno once McGahee left the game. McGahee is worth holding onto it seems, and should get his job back.
