ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Willis McGahee is back in the Denver Broncos' camp, if not necessarily their good graces.

The 11th-year running back skipped each of the Broncos' 10 "voluntary" practices over the last month but showed up for the start of the team's three-day mandatory minicamp Tuesday.

With second-year pro Ronnie Hillman and rookie Montee Ball getting most of the work out of the backfield Tuesday morning, McGahee got only a few snaps in his first practice since suffering a right knee injury last November.

McGahee said he skipped the OTAs for family reasons and insisted that missing those workouts didn't put him in a bad spot by giving the youngsters a head start.
