The Denver Broncos running attack didn’t get through their Week 7 win unscathed.
Running back C.J. Anderson sustained a right knee injury during Denver’s 27-9 victory against the Houston Texans. The running back played through his ailment in Week 7, but the injury is now a cause for concern.
Anderson’s knee caused him to missed Wednesday’s practice. Denver’s starting running back is reportedly getting a second opinion on his banged up knee, according to Mike Klis of 9 News in Denver.
The Broncos are optimistic Anderson’s injury is minor. Although there is concern he could miss some action.
Anderson appeared to injure his knee making a cut during an 11-yard run on the last play of the first quarter. The 5-foot-8 running back’s 106 rushing yards versus Houston was his highest rushing total of the season.
Anderson leads the team with 437 rushing yards this year.
Denver faces the San Diego Chargers at home on Sunday.
