C.J. Anderson’s worst case scenario has been ruled out. Tests have confirmed that the Broncos running back does not have an ACL tear, as Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets. More should be known about the full extent of Anderson’s injury later on today when the Broncos provide an update. C.J. Anderson (vertical)

Anderson suffered his knee injury in the first quarter of Monday night’s game against the Texans. Showing tremendous heart, Anderson stayed in the game. Afterwards, the Broncos took a closer look at the injury and feared significant damage. Anderson isn’t totally out of the woods and could still miss multiple games, but it doesn’t sound like his injury is a season-ender.

Yesterday, it was reported that Anderson is expected to be out at least a few weeks. That still sounds like the most likely outcome for the the 25-year-old, but we should know more about his timetable this afternoon.
