Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) misses practice on Wednesday, seeks second opinion

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said after beating the Texans last Monday night that he’d like to continue riding a 1-2 punch of C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker out of the backfield, but circumstances may dictate a different approach.

Mike Klis of KUSA reports that Anderson will miss practice on Wednesday while going for a second opinion on a knee injury that he suffered in the game against Houston.

Anderson got hurt on a run at the end of the first quarter, but was able to remain in the game and ran for 84 more yards after going down on the play.

Fantasy Impact: 

This isn’t a death knell to his Week 8 availability, but it is concerning. Devontae Booker would be a high-end RB2 if Anderson can’t play. Anderson finished the game in Week 7, so for now we're assuming he'll play.
