BRONCOS RB C.J. ANDERSON SELECTED TO 2015 PRO BOWL

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos running back C.J. Anderson was selected to play in the 2015 Pro Bowl, the NFL informed the team on Monday. He will replace Pittsburgh running back Le’Veon Bell, who is unable to participate due to injury.

Anderson played 15 games for the Broncos in 2014, starting the club’s final seven contests and totaling 849 rushing yards and eight touchdowns on 179 carries (4.7 avg.) He also caught 34 passes for 324 yards (9.5 avg.) with two touchdowns.

The second-year player, who was signed by the Broncos as a college free agent in 2013, led all NFL players with 709 yards from scrimmage (472 rush / 237 rec.) during the month of November and tied for the league lead in touchdowns (7) in December.

Anderson’s selection gives Denver 11 Pro Bowlers this year to represent the most in team history. He is the ninth Broncos running back to be named to the Pro Bowl and the first since Willis McGahee was selected following the 2011 season.
