Running back C.J. Anderson returned from a concussion he suffered Week One versus Seattle and again proved himself worthy of the spot behind incumbent back Montee Ball.

Anderson got some work with both the first and second-team offenses and displayed the agility and explosiveness that Denver coaches raved about during training camp.

He only had nine carries for 29 yards but plunged into the end zone from a yard out for a touchdown that helped give the Broncos a 17-0 lead heading into halftime.
Anderson, who’s from the Bay Area, was pleased with his own personal homecoming game.

"“I love road games and love being home…” he said. “It’s just good that I can put on a show in front of family and friends.”"

Anderson is getting better with each passing day and will continue to push Ronnie Hillman and Ball for more playing time as Week One of the regular season draws near.
