Video: OU running back Rodney Anderson talks spring progress

He's all the way back and healthy, things are looking up for OU running back Rodney Anderson.

Oklahoma’s spring game is in the books, and the best news for redshirt freshman running back Rodney Anderson is he remains healthy.

Injured last spring and after suffering a season-ending injury at Tennessee last year, health means a lot for Anderson right now.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield talked about what he has seen from Anderson this spring.

“He’s very good,” Mayfield said. “He’s a guy that I’m very proud of him for coming back after a broken leg. He’s progressed so well. He’s gotten bigger and all those running backs are muscled up. He’s moving well and he’s a guy that shows it more, kind of like Samaje, when you go full to the ground.

“He’s getting second and third efforts and it’s going to take more than just one guy. He’s not going to be arm tackled. He’s a big, physical back and we had high hopes for him last year but it’s going to be even more now that he’s older.”
