The Denver Broncos running back panned a report Thursday from the NFL Network that he had “told people close to him that he’s done for the year.” Anderson angrily denied the report on Twitter but later deleted his comments, saying he would “stay off social.”

Anderson and the Broncos (5-2) are expecting to find out later Thursday the extent of his injury and how many games he’ll miss.

Anderson rushed for 107 yards and a touchdown in Denver’s 27-9 win over Houston on Monday night despite injuring his right knee on his second carry.
