Bengals Believe Rookie RB Rodney Anderson Tore ACL

According to Tom Pelissero, the Bengals believe sixth-round rookie RB Rodney Anderson tore his ACL again in Thursday’s preseason finale. 

Anderson missed his final year of college last season at Oklahoma with a torn ACL in that same knee. He fell to Cincinnati in the sixth round because of his extensive injury history, including a neck injury in 2016 and an ankle injury in 2015. 

Anderson, 22, was selected in the sixth round of this year’s draft by the Bengals. He agreed to a four-year, $2,647,840 contract that included a $127,840 signing bonus.

During his college career at Oklahoma, Anderson rushed for 1,285 yards on 200 carries (6.4 YPC) to go along with 17 receptions for 281 yards receiving and 21 touchdowns over the course of 17 games.
