ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos placed running back Willis McGahee on injured reserve (designated for return), it was announced on Wednesday.

McGahee opened 9-of-10 games for the Broncos this season, leading the club with 731 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 167 carries (4.4 avg.) in addition to posting 26 receptions for 221 yards. The 10th-year pro ranks third among active players with 8,097 career rushing yards, and his 33 100-yard rushing games lead all current running backs.

In his first season with the Broncos in 2011, McGahee was selected to play in his second Pro Bowl after recording his fourth career 1,000-yard rushing season (1,199 yds.). He joined Ricky Watters (S.F./Phi./Sea.) as the only players in NFL history to record 1,000 yards rushing in a season with three different teams—having previously done so with Buffalo (2004-05) and Baltimore (2007).

McGahee is eligible to return to practice in six weeks (Jan. 2) and can be activated by the Broncos in eight weeks (Jan. 16).
