I think Johnson's running style is too similar to Hillman's. Anderson is a load and he looks at home in a 1-cut ZBS.
This is what many posters here are not considering and it is why we will keep him on the 53 man roster IMO

I'd be awfully hesitant about keeping an injured rookie UDFA back on the active roster based on 1 good half against scrubs and a couple of good training camp practices. Stash him on the practice squad. If he gets picked up, so be it. Bottom line is we have three high draft RB's on the roster that need to produce. If one of these guys get hurt or really sucks, I'm sure Willis is sitting by the phone.

I'd rather have him on the PS and not tie up a roster spot for a 4th back who's injured. Just me though.

We certainly aren't as deep at other positions.

I'm going off recent history and assuming Denver keeps 4 RBs. Rather have a high-upside RB as the 4th option than Lance/JJ/Hester. definitely understand not wanting to keep a guy who might be shelved for the first few games, but like I said I think Denver could get pick up a guy like Lance or as someone else said McGahee if they are in a pinch. It's going to be interesting to see how the FO feels come opening day.

Honestly, I think CJ will be relegated to the practice squad due to the injury, but I wouldn't complain if they kept him over Lance Ball, even if he is injured. I can't stand Lance Ball.

I hope more than anything Lance gets cut.

What happened to him? I didn't see anything about him getting hurt.

Once on IR does he have to stay there for the entire season? If the Broncos aren't gonna put Q. Smith on IR and the Broncos are gonna bring Walton back from IR, then why not put CJ on IR, call it a year and then bring him back next season. If the Broncos cut him while he's injured won't they have to pay him out for the injury anyway? This way they can monitor his progress, keep him in house and then try it again next year.

Or, can they put him on IR and then release him once he's healed up, hope no one picks him up and then maybe if Moreno or another RB goes down with an injury, they can bring him back? Or better yet, put him on IR and keep him on IR until another RB goes down with an injury and then release CJ, hope no one signs him, and then bring him back on the team, or is that illegal?

5. RB C.J. Anderson (California), Broncos: Anderson is a 5-8, 225-pound fireplug who is sudden with good change of direction and is turning heads in Denver. He will not clear waivers if the club tries to get him to the practice squad. Anderson sprained his knee this week and will miss a few weeks recovering, but remains in the mix.

I could see him getting stashed while he heals. This might open the door for Sproles type packages for Holliday--which would be pretty sweet.

Word is ( Klis of DP) that the Broncos are going to sign a RB this week ( McGahee?).

Assuming that they do, then I think it means they will IR Anderson till next year, when the cutdowns happen later this month. When you see the way CJ was running, and moving forward after contact, he ( not Ball, Bell or Hillman) most closely looks like what a healthy McGahee offered to the team. Add in his one cut ability. And maybe McGahee being cut in the first place was somewhat because of what Anderson showed in OTAs and the start of camp.

Since Walton is already the designated 6 week IR guy for the team they can't
use that for Anderson. And it is likely that trying to slip him through waivers to put on the PS will result in some team ( Washington or Houston especially, or the damn Patriots) trying to snatch him away, if not right away , then later in the season.

If Denver signs a BIG back this week then he will replace CJ in the teams plans for this year. My bet is IR.

Some writer today (Kirwin?) said there's no way CJ would make it through waivers.
