The Denver Broncos received bad injury news on C.J. Anderson.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the running back told people close to him that he’s done for the season. Rapoport added, per a source informed of the situation, that Anderson will have an arthroscopic procedure on his torn meniscus on Thursday, and will be placed on injured reserve.

The running back initially denied the report, writing “false” on Twitter, but then later deleted the posts.

Later on Thursday, Anderson tweeted out a statement thanking his family, teammates and fans for their support.

Anderson suffered an injury early in Monday night’s victory over the Houston Texans.

The initial diagnosis was a bone bruise in Anderson’s right knee that would have cost him at least a few weeks. Worse news came with a second opinion.

The news is a brutal blow for Anderson, who was coming off the best performance of his season: 107 yards on 16 carries and a touchdown. The 6.7 yards per tote average was more than two yards better than his season average.

Rookie Devontae Booker saw his role increase heavily in Week 7, toting 17 times. He’ll now take over the workhorse role. Booker displayed power between the tackles, good vision and a bowling-ball running style. Third-year pro Kapri Bibbs will play a support role with fullback Andy Janovich possibly seeing increased snaps.
