Willis McGahee Status Update: Denver Broncos RB Has Sore Back, But Probable Against Miami Dolphins

Denver Broncos running back Willis McGahee missed Thursday's practice with a sore back, but he is listed as probable for Sunday's road game against the Miami Dolphins. He returned on Friday with a full practice and should shoulder the load for the Broncos once again.

While McGahee was expected to be the goal line back for the Broncos in 2011, Knowshon Moreno failed to maintain his hold as the starter, partly due to injury and other parts ineffectiveness. McGahee has had three 100-plus yard rushing games this season, including two straight. However, the Dolphins have the No. 12 rush defense this season, allowing 106.8 yards.

With Tim Tebow starting at quarterback, Dolphins defenders might be scrambling all day long, giving McGahee a few chances.
