An illness kept Denver Broncos running back Willis McGahee from practicing fully until Friday, but the veteran is listed as "Probable" and is expected to start against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
McGahee was held out of Wednesday's practice and was limited on Thursday, but returned on Friday and will be active when the Broncos take on the Vikings' ninth-ranked run defense.
Released for salary cap purposes by the Baltimore Ravens, and despite missing one game with a broken hand, McGahee leads the Broncos' run-heavy offense -- only the Houston Texans have more rushing attempts than Denvers 367 on the season -- with 164 attempts and 775 rushing yards and is tied with quarterback Tim Tebow for the team lead with three rushing touchdowns.
In two career games against the Vikings, McGahee has 35 carries for just 81 yards with one touchdown.
