(DENVER) — Denver Broncos running back C.J. Anderson could be out for a while after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his knee.
A source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Anderson suffered damage to the meniscus in his right knee. The extent of the damage would be determined during the surgery.
ESPN says a full meniscus tear could cost Anderson the remainder of the Broncos’ season, while a partial tear could see him return in four or five weeks.
An MRI Anderson had done on Wednesday revealed no tear of his ACL.
Anderson suffered the injury late in the first quarter of the Broncos’ Monday night win over the Houston Texans. Anderson returned to the game eight plays later, however, and finished with 16 carries for 107 rushing yards.
Rookie Devontae Booker is expected to start on Sunday in Anderson’s place.
