Rodney Anderson’s season likely over after suffering a torn ACL

Rodney Anderson’s injury was confirmed by Bengals head coach Zac Taylor as a torn ACL. He will likely miss the entire season. Due to injuries, Anderson played only 17 games in four seasons with the Oklahoma Sooners, which was a concern coming into this year’s draft.

Fantasy Impact

With Anderson out of the picture, both Joe Mixon and Giovanni Bernard’s workloads appear to be safe.

Rodney Anderson forced to exit Thursday's preseason game against the Colts

Cincinnati Bengals running back Rodney Anderson was forced to leave Thursday's preseason finale game against the Colts with an apparent knee injury.

Fantasy Impact

Anderson was most likely jockeying for Cincinnati's RB3 spot with Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard as the two backs projected to lead the backfield in 2019. It's unclear if this is the same knee Anderson injured during his final season in Oklahoma, but it certainly doesn't bode well for the 2019 sixth round pick. The Bengals will closely monitor Anderson's status as they will be making their final cuts to their 53-man roster soon.

Rodney Anderson gains 58 yards in preseason debut

Cincinnati Bengals running back Rodney Anderson picked up seven yards on eight carries in a 25-23 preseason loss to the Giants on Thursday. He added four catches for 51 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Anderson couldn't get much going on the ground but he made up for it with an excellent performance in the passing game. The rookie running back is fighting for a backup role behind starter Joe Mixon.

Rodney Anderson likely to start the year on the PUP list

Bengals rookie running back Rodney Anderson is likely to begin the year on the PUP list, according to The Athletic's Paul Dehner on Twitter. Anderson is recovering from a torn ACL and broken leg suffered last September.

Fantasy Impact

The Bengals are likely to be cautious with Anderson after he suffered such a serious injury last year, so this news should not be surprising. For his part, Anderson said that he hopes to be ready for training camp. He is worth a late stash in rookie-only drafts but does not offer much value in redraft leagues unless he can prove that he is healthy enough to contribute throughout the summer.
