McGahee’s addition, which earlier was reported by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter and NFL.com, helps to fill the void created when running back Trent Richardson was traded to the Indianapolis Colts for a 2014 first-round pick.
McGahee will play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, a team source told ESPN’s Schefter. Cleveland’s offensive system under Norv Turner is similar to the one McGahee played in at Baltimore and he picked it up quickly Thursday, the source said. Cleveland’s coaches aren’t sure yet how much McGahee will play and won’t know until after watching him Friday in practice.
