ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Broncos starting running back C.J. Anderson could miss a few weeks because of a knee injury.
A number of media reports Wednesday afternoon described the injury as a knee bruise. Anderson was hurt in Monday night's 27-9 win over the Houston Texans.
Anderson ran for 107 yards on 16 carries and he scored a touchdown against Houston. He became the Broncos' first 100-yard rusher in a game this season.
Devontae Booker also ran well against the Texans. He rushed for 83 yards on 17 carries and had one touchdown.
In Anderson's absence, Booker could become the lead running back for the Broncos when they play San Diego on Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
