Anderson was placed on the active/PUP list a few weeks ago.
Anderson, 23, was selected in the sixth round of last year’s draft by the Bengals. He agreed to a four-year, $2,647,840 contract that included a $127,840 signing bonus.
Unfortunately, Anderson tore his ACL during the preseason and spent the year on injured reserve.
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.
