Willis McGahee practiced in full pads for the Denver Broncos on Wednesday, Andrew Mason of Mile High Sports reports. McGahee suffered a ribs injury during Sunday's game against the Houston Texans, and had to leave the game after rushing for just 36 yards on 12 carries.
Fantasy Impact: With McGahee a full participant in practice, odds look better that the Broncos won't have to rely on a committee of Lance Ball, Ronnie Hillman and Knowshon Moreno against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. McGahee has been productive when he has been on the field. In Week 2 he rushed for 113 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries. He is the only proven commodity in the Broncos' backfield, making him a good RB2/Flex play in standard fantasy leagues most weeks.
