On Thursday night, the Cincinnati Bengals took on the Indianapolis Colts in the preseason finale for both squads.

Most of the starters on both teams didn't see the field during the game. Without the starters on the field, it opened an opportunity for other players to make a name for themselves before rosters are cut down to 53 players this weekend.

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.

Now the team reportedly fears Anderson suffered a significant knee injury. According to a report from NFL insider Tom Pelissero, the Bengals believe Anderson suffered yet another torn ACL.

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 heartbreaking news for the former Sooners star who saw his collegiate career come to an end due to a torn ACL.

Stay tuned for an official announcement from the team.
