Report: Bengals DE Anderson tears quad

The Bengals added DEs Jamaal Anderson and Derrick Harvey in free agency to bolster their depth after the losses of Frostee Rucker and Jonathan Fanene. While Harvey did not pan out and was released, Anderson looks like he will have a place in the Bengals’ DL rotation this season. With DEs Robert Geathers and Carlos Dunlap recovering from knee injuries, the 6-6, 280-pound Anderson has become all the more important to the Bengals. Anderson, whom the Falcons selected eighth overall in the 2007 draft, has not been much of pass-rush threat throughout his career, but he’s a stout presence on the edge, and he can play both DE spots. “He’s a tremendous athlete — that’s why he was a high pick in the draft,” head coach Marvin Lewis said recently. “He’s got great experience, and most importantly he’s a very, very good person. He has that veteran presence about him. He understands football, he understands defensive line play."
