The Cincinnati Bengals took on the Indianapolis Colts in the final game of the preseason on Thursday night.

Most of the starters on both teams didn't see the field during the game. However, it does present an opportunity for those trying to make a roster to give teams a lasting image for the coaches heading into Labor Day Weekend.

The rosters will be cut down to 53 over the weekend before the regular season starts next week.

One of the players that excited coaches last weekend was running back Rodney Anderson. The former Oklahoma star dominated the Giants last weekend and looked to be well on his way to earning a roster spot.

However, during Thursday night's game against the Colts, Anderson left the game with a knee injury.

According to multiple reports, Anderson made a cut during the game and went to the ground. He eventually limped off the field, but was ruled out for the rest of the game.

It's awful news for the star running back. His collegiate football career came to an end due to a knee injury.

After a breakout season in 2017, Anderson suffered a torn ACL in the second game of the season in 2018.

Hopefully Anderson avoided serious injury tonight.
