OT Anderson Eyeing Opening Day After All

Willie Anderson

Bengals offensive tackle Willie Anderson must be feeling a lot better. At least that’s the thought behind some recent comments made by the 340 pounder stating that now playing in the season opener vs the Ravens may happen after all. Anderson has been hampered by a right foot injury, and it was disclosed last week that he had underwent a nonsurgical procedure to address the problem in the foot. Now though, Anderson is talking big that playing opening day is in his future. “A foot injury can’t stop me from playing football,” Anderson said yesterday. “I really believe come opening day I’ll be there.”

Anderson was wearing a protective boot on his right foot, and it was off before the game Saturday at Paul Brown Stadium vs the Saints, which was a good sign. He now says that he is hoping to be on the practice field in the next few weeks. The opener vs the Ravens is just less than three weeks away. “We’re doing the correct things, and things are going great right now,” Anderson said. He has started the last 112 regular season games for the Bengals, and does not plan on missing any now.
