The Broncos got a big update on the recovery of one of their most explosive playmakers.
According to Denver7 ABC, the Broncos running back is "ahead of schedule" in his rehab from a torn meniscus in his right knee. Anderson was placed on injured reserve after undergoing surgery in October.
The Broncos had hoped that he would be recovered in time for the team's playoff run. If this update is any indiction, Anderson could be be back on the field to contribute in the postseason, assuming the Broncos qualify.
"Just know I will grind and push to be the best always and be stronger than I was before," Anderson said prior to his operation.
The Broncos rushing attack has struggled mightily in the last three weeks since losing Anderson. The Broncos' combination of Devontae Booker and Kapri Bibbs has led the Broncos run game to 24th in the NFL, averaging just 97.4 yards-per-game.
