Unfortunately for former Sooners running back Rodney Anderson, he hasn't had much luck staying healthy. After tearing his ACL last year, he may have just done so once again.

According to reports, the Bengals have grown worried Anderson tore his ACL during Thursday night's preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Obviously, this is terrible news for Anderson, who was selected in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

In the loss, Anderson carried the ball fives times for two yards. He went down with the injury, but was able to walk off the field under his own power. As you can see in the video below, Anderson was quite frustrated as he left the gridiron.

At this point, you can't help but feel bad for the young man. After missing 2018 with a knee injury, Anderson fought back to get ready for this season. He was making a splash with the Bengals during the preseason, only to have this happen.

Though nothing has been made official, it looks like his 2019 could be over before it even started.
