MONSTER blow for this team... Now we have to just hope Ronnie Hillman, Lance Ball, and Knowshon Moreno can give somewhat decent production. This really sucks. Likely will be done for the season.

Crying or Very sad

Second I saw it I knew it was at least an MCL/ACL tear. His knee flexed awkwardly when he planted, shame, was having a great season. Hope he can come back strong but at his age, it's dicey. It really is a shame.

I think Manning and Thomas will be fine without him.

For the regular season. Will likely be back for the playoffs.

Denver was going to make the postseason. Might turn out to be a blessing for this team. Now they really get to see what Hillman is made out of. If he steps up, you have a great rotation. If he doesn't, then you slip a fresh McGahee into the lineup for the playoffs.

They haven't exactly been blowing teams out, they have won both chargers games and the cinci game with defensive points and turnovers. Losing the run game is huge, taking more risks throwing could lead to more interceptions and we're already struggling to with fumbles.

Hopefully Lance Ball can step up and be a good all purpose option. Hillman is kinda small to be throwing up the middle.

The Broncos should still be OK for the regular season. Rough luck for McGahee though.

This is likely the last to be seen of McGahee. That's such a tough injury to come back from at his age. On the other side Hillman is a future hall of famer so the Broncos won't miss a beat. If Peyton stays healthy they will be in the AFCG at the least.

That's big. They're going to lose a game they would have won otherwise because of this.

Really bummed for Willis. He was a warrior for us.
