Willis McGahee injures hamstring

DENVER — Denver Broncos running back Willis McGahee suffered a left hamstring injury during Sunday’s loss to New England.

McGahee stretched out on the sideline for most of the second quarter and through halftime and returned for the third quarter, but departed after only two carries. Coach John Fox said after the game no players were injured seriously. But the team will have a quicker than normal turnaround for the Buffalo game, which will be played Saturday on Christmas Eve.

McGahee was off to a huge start against the Patriots, running for 70 yards on seven carries. But he's endured a string of nagging ailments of late. He had a left hamstring injury previously that hampered him badly in a win over the Jets on Nov. 17.

He then missed the final series of the Dec. 4 game at Minnesota with a knee issue and didn't appear to be at full speed against Chicago the following week.
