McGahee, Broncos say broken hand not an issue

Denver Broncos running back Willis McGahee says his broken right hand shouldn't hinder him Sunday at Oakland.

McGahee practiced Thursday for the second straight day and was able to carry the ball in either hand.

McGahee missed last week's game against Detroit after undergoing an operation to insert screws and a plate into his right hand. He's been wearing padding over the incision and said he's not worried about taking a helmet to the hand because he'd have to carry the ball high for that to be a concern.

McGahee wasn't the Broncos' starting tailback when Denver lost to Oakland in the opener. Denver rushed 13 times for 38 yards in that game, and coach John Fox said Thursday that he "abandoned the run too quickly" that night.
