Browns | Willis McGahee misses practice

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knee) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 17. The team was just giving McGahee a day off from practice to rest his surgically repaired knee, and he rode a bike and worked on the side during drills. Cleveland expects him to play in Week 7 versus the Green Bay Packers, but he'll likely be on the injury report for the rest of the year. "We have an unusual situation, and we're making the best out of it," offensive coordinator Norv Turner said. "McGahee is giving us plays. Ogbonnaya is giving us plays. Bobby's giving us some plays. Now we're going to use Fozzy a little bit and see how he does. No question it's a group effort."
McGahee will continue to see the majority of touches in this backfield if he can stay healthy. That counts for something. However, he's on the wrong side of 30 and isn't much more than a flex play most weeks.
