Anderson’s knee not as bad as feared

GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) _ A sore knee likely will keep Cincinnati Bengals offensive lineman Willie Anderson out of just one more exhibition game.

And that’s better news than the Bengals had expected.

Anderson’s knee was severely bruised but apparently sustained no structural damage when he hurt it during a workout Thursday, Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said.

Anderson, Cincinnati’s top draft choice last year and now the starter at right tackle, did not play in Friday night’s exhibition loss at Indianapolis.

He is ``questionable″ for Friday’s game at Detroit and ``probable″ for the home exhibition Aug. 16 against Minnesota, Brennan said.
