Bruce Anderson: Waived from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts waived Anderson (undisclosed) from injured reserve Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Anderson and the Colts agreed to an injury settlement, so the running back will be able to sign another contract once he's healthy. The North Dakota State product went undrafted in 2019 and has yet to make his NFL debut.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (undisclosed) cleared waivers Thursday and reverted to Indianapolis' injured reserve list, per the league's official transactions report.

Bruce Anderson: Let go Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts waived Anderson on Wednesday, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.

Anderson inked the contract with the team after spending 2019 on the practice squad. Unfortunately for the North Dakota State product, he couldn't crack the roster so he'll have to look for a depth role elsewhere.

Colts' Bruce Anderson III: Latches on with Indy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts on Monday.

The 22-year-old spent time on the Colts' practice squad during the season but was let go with an injury settlement in November, though it doesn't appear to have been a long-term injury. Anderson will have a tough time cracking the running back group for next season with Marlon Mack, Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins (knee) all under contract.

There has been no word of a deal for Anderson yet, but at least he's healthy. He had been released from the Colts' practice squad due to an undisclosed injury last month.

Bruce Anderson: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts placed Anderson (undisclosed) on the practice squad injured list on Tuesday.

The undrafted rookie is on his second practice squad of the year, as he also spent time with Tampa Bay. It's unclear what's bothering Anderson. The team signed Darius Jackson to the practice squad to fill the void.

Bruce Anderson: Signs with practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bruce Anderson: Jettisoned from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was released from the Buccaneers' practice squad Tuesday, Jenna Laine of reports.

The undrafted rookie's stay on the Buccaneers' taxi squad was brief, as he'd just signed on Sunday. Despite Tuesday's development - which was prompted by the team re-signing Patrick O'Connor -- it wouldn't be surprising to see Anderson return at some point, considering the team was apparently interested in getting a longer look at him.

Bruce Anderson: Nabs practice squad spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was added to the Buccaneers' practice squad Sunday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

The undrafted rookie had limited opportunities in preseason game action until the final exhibition, when he compiled 70 rushing yards and a touchdown along with seven additional yards on a pair of receptions. The Buccaneers ultimately went with only three running backs on their final 53, so Anderson could potentially have a quick path to the active roster if injuries strike the position.

Buccaneers' Bruce Anderson: Workhorse back in preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson rushed 20 times for 70 yards and a touchdown and secured his only target for seven yards in the Buccaneers' 17-15 preseason win over the Cowboys on Thursday.

As expected, Anderson got an extended look in the preseason finale, comfortably pacing the Buccaneers in carries. The undrafted rookie's final line was serviceable, but it's worth noting 20 of his yards came on one carry. At the same time, Anderson also played behind a porous and inexperienced offensive line, but nevertheless, he doesn't seem to have any realistic shot at a spot on the 53-man roster come cutdown time. Instead, Anderson looks like a practice squad candidate as the Buccaneers likely head into the season with either Dare Ogunbowale or Andre Ellington behind top duo Peyton Barber and Ronald Jones.

Buccaneers' Bruce Anderson: Slight boost in workload
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson rushed three times for three yards and brought in one of two targets for six yards in the Buccaneers' 16-14 preseason win over the Dolphins on Friday.

Anderson logged modest snaps for the second time in as many preseason games, but his four touches actually represented an exponential increase from what he saw in the exhibition opener. The undrafted rookie had only seen one target directed his way against the Steelers last week, so Friday's workload at least gave him an opportunity to show what he could do on the ground. That ultimately didn't result in any appreciable production, but Anderson's biggest opportunity to make a case for a roster spot or a practice-squad designation may come in the Buccaneers' final preseason contest a week from this coming Thursday.

Buccaneers' Bruce Anderson: Minimal action in preseason loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson did not log any carries and failed to bring in his only target during the Buccaneers' 30-28 preseason loss to the Steelers on Friday.

Anderson saw two of his primary competitors for a roster spot, Andre Ellington and Dare Ogunbowale, log a total of 14 touches in the running game while he was shut out altogether. The undrafted rookie is thought to be in an uphill battle to stick on the final 53, but he'll likely get much more of an opportunity to show what he can do in coming exhibitions.

Buccaneers' Bruce Anderson: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (Achilles) returned to practice Wednesday, increasing his chances of playing in the Buccaneers' preseason opener versus the Steelers on Friday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Coach Bruce Arians confirmed that Anderson had been dealing with some Achilles tendinitis, but the undrafted rookie is apparently over the issue at this point. A prompt return to practice was particularly important for Anderson, who already faces a relatively steep path to earning a roster spot. He currently slots in fourth on the depth chart at running back alongside Dare Ogunbowale.

Buccaneers' Bruce Anderson: Chances better with Wilson release
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson is one of five running backs currently remaining on the Buccaneers' roster following last Friday's release of Shaun Wilson, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

The undrafted free agent from North Dakota State has a similar toolbox to the departed Wilson, in the sense that he's able to utilize above-average speed to get outside quickly and also has a proven track record as both a receiver and returner, per Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times. Moreover, at 5-foot-11, 210 pounds, Anderson is stouter than the 5-foot-9, 185-pound Wilson, with his solid size rendering him an effective between-the-tackles runner in college. Anderson compiled nearly 1,400 yards from scrimmage during his junior season before sharing carries in his senior year, and although a hamstring injury kept him from accepting a Senior Bowl invite, he impressed with both his speed (4.58 40-yard dash) and power (22 reps of 225 lbs) at his pro day. He projects to battle Dare Ogunbowale and Andre Ellington for a spot on the latter portion of the running back depth chart this summer.
