McGahee hurt his right knee early in the second quarter when he was tackled by San Diego defensive back Quentin Jammer on Sunday.
McGahee's return was questionable. He had 55 yards on seven carries, along with one catch for 18 yards.
The 10-year veteran was helped off the field and onto the bench after the hard tackle from Jammer, who was shaken up on the play as well.
Jammer was questionable to return after hurting his calf.
San Diego also lost linebacker Larry English for the rest of the game with a leg injury, while the Broncos were without special teams stalwart Omar Bolden after he suffered a concussion late in the first quarter.
