WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Rodney Anderson | Free Agent RB

The Bengals waived Rodney Anderson after a failed physical.

Anderson flashed big-time talent at Oklahoma, but he just hasn't been able to get healthy, and Cincinnati is now moving forward with other options on the depth chart behind Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard. This move should lock Trayveon Williams in as a dynasty stash and potential handcuff to Mixon. As for Anderson, we'll see if he can get cleared and find an opportunity elsewhere.

Rodney Anderson tore his ACL, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

This is terrible news for Anderson, who worked his way back from a bad ACL tear suffered early last season with Oklahoma only to have his rookie season end before it gets started. The talented sixth-round pick will now have to go through another rehab process as he looks to get back on the field in 2020. The Bengals will certainly not rush Anderson back after a re-tear, so consider him questionable for Week 1 of next season for now. Anderson has long-term upside, but he probably isn't a must-hold in dynasty leagues.

Rodney Anderson has been ruled out for the rest of tonight's preseason game.

Anderson has a right knee injury, which is the knee that he suffered a torn ACL on last year at Oklahoma. Hopefully Anderson is just dealing with a tweak or some discomfort, but more information should become available in the next 24 hours.

Rodney Anderson (knee) has been cleared to practice for the Bengals.

The rookie running back avoided the PUP list despite coming off an ACL tear suffered last season at Oklahoma, and he's now passed his physical and will hit the field sooner than expected. This is a great sign for Anderson's progress, and he has the talent to quickly rise and become the primary backup on early down behind starter Joe Mixon. The knee injury is a big reason Anderson lasted until the sixth round of this year's draft, and he could become a major steal that potentially contributes early in his career.

The Bengals have selected Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Injuries unfortunately plagued Anderson’s college career, with both his freshman and junior seasons ending after just two games. When he worked his way into the No. 1 back for Oklahoma during the 2017 season, he was one of the best players in the nation while starting the final seven games of the year, rushing for 1,161 yards and 13 touchdowns—along with 281 receiving yards and five receiving touchdowns on 16.5 yards per reception—on the campaign. Anderson is a big back at six-foot and about 225 pounds, but he moves and catches the ball well—that durability is probably the big reason he's going so late, and the Bengals probably feel he was too good of a value to pass up at this point, even after drafting Trayveon Williams earlier today. Anderson could’ve returned to school to potentially build his draft stock into an early Day 2 pick (or higher) in 2020, but he’ll now look to work his way up the depth chart in Cincinnati.
