According to KOCO, a protective order has been filed against the Oklahoma Sooners starting running back, Rodney Anderson. Online court records show the orde was filed by a woman on Monday in Cleveland County. A hearing has been scheduled for December 18th.
Over the course of the year, Anderson blossomed on the field. Showcasing tenacity and grit, the sophomore exploded onto the scene after sitting out two years due to injury. Starting in five games this season, the back racked up 965 yards along with 11 touchdowns.
However, Anderson also proved to be a viable option when catching the ball out of the backfield. Averaging 17.7 yards per catch, the running back crossed the goal lines another five times. The effort brings Anderson’s total to 16 scores on the year.
While specific details pertaining to the protective order remain unknown, the university has been made aware of the situation. The official word is that Oklahoma will continue to gather information before making any sort of a decision as to the future of Anderson.
