| C.J. Anderson to miss at least a few weeks -- Wed Oct 26 4:35 pm --|
May miss rest of season, seeking second opinion
|C.J. Anderson is expected to miss at least a few weeks with a bone bruise in his right knee, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported, via sources informed of the injury.
Anderson is seeking a second medical opinion on the knee. Depending on the results, it's possible that he could miss the remainder of the season, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport added, per a source with knowledge of the situation.
FF Today's Take: Updating previous reports, it looks like C.J. Anderson's knee injury may be serious enough to keep him out for the remainder of the year. Don't drop him until more information on the length of his recovery is determined. In the meantime, rookie Devontae Booker's fantasy stock soars from RB3/Flex option to RB1 status for the foreseeable future. He's been able to accrue a 5.2 YPC over the past month and has an extremely favorable schedule in November.

Missed practice Wednesday

Running back C.J. Anderson is currently getting a second medical opinion on a right knee injury, sources told 9NEWS. Anderson suffered during the game Monday night against the Houston Texans.
There is hope the injury could be minor in nature, although itís also possible he could miss an extended period. (9 News)|
FF Today's Take: Anderson has been losing snaps to rookie Devontae Booker in the last couple weeks and now is getting his knee looked at which he injured but played through on Monday night. If Anderson misses any time, Booker will become a borderline RB1 play.

FF Today's Take: Both backs are viable RB2s facing the Chargers in Week 8, with Anderson having more upside as a straight-ahead runner and Booker filling in more on passing downs.
