The injury-riddled season of Knowshon Moreno that never seemed to get on track has come to a premature end.
"He's tough-minded and he'll battle back from it," Fox said.
The Denver Post reported Monday McGahee has been cleared to practice Tuesday in preparation for Thursday's game against the New York Jets on NFL Network. Barring a setback, McGahee is expected to start against the Jets and will be backed up by Lance Ball and newly-signed running back Jeremiah Johnson, per The Post. Johnson was signed from the team's practice squad on Monday.
McGahee had surgery to fix a broken finger on his right hand a few weeks ago, but returned against Oakland to run for 163 yards and two touchdowns. He had four carries for 17 yards against the Chiefs before exiting.
