Denver Broncos running back C.J. Anderson called out NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on Twitter late Thursday, claiming his report of Anderson’s season-ending knee injury is false.

C.J. Anderson Calls Out Ian Rapoport For False, ‘Season-Ending’ Injury Report

Rapoport rarely gets his reports wrong, yet Thursday morning’s evidently was. The NFL Network Insider tweeted that Anderson would miss the rest of the season due to an undisclosed injury sustained during the Broncos’ win over the Houston Texans on Monday night.

Although the running back did not practice with the team Wednesday, there didn’t seem to be much concern about his long-term viability.

Anderson, who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, responded to the tweet just minutes later, simply saying ‘False.’

The Broncos (5-2) will next host the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.

Hopefully, Rapoport has learned his lesson and will never jump to report anything again without any sort of actual confirmation.
