McGahee would not be eligible to play until the AFC Championship Game if Denver gets that far. But his rehab is going well enough that he could be back on the practice field as the Broncos prepare to host the Ravens.
"I won't update you with anything about that until [Tuesday]," coach John Fox said.
McGahee strained the MCL in his right knee and suffered a compression fracture of his right tibia, the bone that runs just below the knee cap, on Nov. 18.
Before the injury in Denver's 23-20 win over San Diego, McGahee ran for 731 yards and four touchdowns in nine-and-a-half games, averaging 4.4 yards per carry. He also had 26 catches for 221 yards.

Replacement Knowshon Moreno has rushed for 525 yards and four scores but averages 3.8 yards per carry. He has 21 catches for 167 yards.
"This isn't my first rodeo for a knee," McGahee told the Associated Press on Monday. "I've been through a lot worse."
The 10-year vet said that though he's pleased with the rehab, he doesn't know how his knee will respond to practicing.
McGahee is on his fifth playoff team but hasn't reached the Super Bowl.
"We're winning," he told the AP. "My selfish days are over with. It's time to get a ring."
