Willis McGahee rushed seven times for 27 yards and added one catch for 14 yards in Sunday's preseason game against the 49ers.
McGahee showed well against the Niners' staunch first-team defense. He started and showed surprising burst while backup Lance Ball was used strictly as a change-of-pace option. Ball later left with a chest injury and did not return. Through three preseason games, McGahee has rushed 19 times for 71 yards (3.73 YPC) with one touchdown. He's locked in as the Broncos' early-down pounder and goal-line back.
