Following the game coach John Fox told reporters that McGahee had experienced swelling in his knee. The 31-year-old will undergo an MRI today to determine the extent of the injury.
McGahee has rushed for 676 yards with four touchdowns on 160 carries with 203 receiving yards on 25 receptions over 10 games this season.
McGahee was replaced by running back Ronnie Hillman, who rushed for 43 yards on 12 carries and caught two passes for 16 yards. He would get the start if McGahee is forced to miss the Broncos contest next weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs.
