The Facts: McGahee was back on the field with the team Tuesday, but he spent more time watching the offense than playing in it. McGahee was asked after practice if he thinks he would have received a bigger workload if had he attended workouts at the Broncos' complex in recent weeks: "Probably, but hey we've got seven other running backs."
Diehards Line: According to Post staffer Jeff Legwold, Ronnie Hillman continued to get the bulk of the work with the starters and rookie Montee Ball also was used far more than McGahee in Tuesday's practice. The two backs, selected by the Broncos in the 2012 and this past April's draft, represent a significant challenge to McGahee's starting job and his roster spot. Asked Tuesday where he would rank this year's level of competition at running back, he said: "It's always going to rank high to me because the other guys are younger. I'm always on the bubble," McGahee said. "Not too much you can do. It's a business. If something happens it happens. ..." Meanwhile, McGahee said he has been medically cleared to participate fully in practice and that he has worked out "hard, real hard," in Miami.
