Broncos' McGahee active; Bears QB McCown to backup Hanie

Tim Tebow will have his favorite running mate in the Broncos backfield Sunday as Willis McGahee is active for Denver's home tilt against the Chicago Bears.

McGahee, who has 886 rushing yards with four touchdowns this year, previously had been listed as questionable on the team's injury report with a knee injury.

Broncos wideout Eddie Royal (concussion) is inactive.

There are no notable inactives for the Bears, but the Chicago Tribune reported that the team will use Josh McCown as its backup quarterback vs. the Broncos. The Bears signed McCown on Nov. 23 following Jay Cutler's broken thumb sustained in a win over the San Diego Chargers.
