Last night, the Cincinnati Bengals took on the Indianapolis Colts in the preseason finale for both teams

Most of the key players on both teams didn't see the field during the game. Before NFL teams cut their rosters down to 53, players tried to make a lasting impression.

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 the game last night, Anderson left with a potentially serious knee injury.

On Friday afternoon, Bengals head coach Zac Taylor confirmed Anderson suffered a 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.
