Injured Denver Broncos running back Willis McGahee returned to practice on Tuesday wearing a non-contact black jersey, according to the Denver Post.
It was the first day McGahee was eligible to practice since being placed on the team's injured reserve/designated-to-return list with a torn medial collateral ligament and leg fracture. He sustained the injuries in a Week 11 victory over the San Diego Chargers.
While he can practice, McGahee is not eligible to play until the AFC championship, if the Broncos advance. They face the visiting Baltimore Ravens in the AFC divisional playoffs on Saturday.
In 10 games, McGahee ran for a team-high 731 yards with four touchdowns. Knowshon Moreno has filled in effectively for McGahee.
