Ravens vs. Broncos: Willis McGahee, Chris Kuper back at practice

US PRESSWIRE

Denver is getting ready to host the Ravens this weekend, and is getting healthier by the day.

The Denver Broncos are gearing up to face the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday afternoon in the AFC Divisional playoffs, and they recently saw some good news. Both running back Willis McGahee and guard Chris Kuper practiced, according to the Denver Post.

Kuper has been a study in perservence since the end of the 2011 season, when he had a grotesque ankle injury that included a fracture and dislocation against the Kansas City Chiefs.

This year, Kuper had again been sidelined for nine games but he could be back in the lineup against Baltimore when the whistle is blown. Per the Denver Post:

"It's been a trying year for me," Kuper said. "I feel good. I'm doing my best out there to be ready to go. This is what I've been playing for since I've been here. I missed our (playoff) game last year because of injury, and I was doing everything I could to get back during the season, not just the playoffs."

As for McGahee, the ex-Raven continues to work his way back from a torn MCL that he sustained against the San Diego Chargers in the middle of November.

McGahee can't play this weekend against Baltimore, but could be activated for the AFC Championship game, per the NFL's injured reserve list rules.

Wide receiver Trindon Holliday and tackle Ryan Clady also practiced on Tuesday.
