McGahee remained down on the field after a 1-yard run late in the first quarter. He was tackled on the play by Seattle linebacker Lofa Tatupu and defensive tackle Brandon Mebane. McGahee walked slowly off the field, and had his chest wrapped on the sideline before walking back to the locker room.
The team said McGahee was hopeful of returning in the second half, but was announced as being out when the second half began.
McGahee had five carries for 10 yards in the first quarter. Former Denver lead running back Mike Anderson took McGahee's place. Anderson had seven carries for the season entering Sunday.
Baltimore was already without middle linebacker Ray Lewis, and its top two tight ends and cornerbacks. Offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden also appeared to be holding his left hamstring at times in the first quarter, but never left the game.
