Dolphins waived FB Deon Anderson.
The Fins have a better fullback on the roster in Lousaka Polite, but they also had little to lose by keeping Anderson around as insurance. A special teamer with decent lead-blocking ability, the 28-year-old was due just $640K. Thu, Mar 3, 2011 01:28:00 AM

Dolphins signed FB Deon Anderson, formerly of the Cowboys.

Anderson, who was cut loose by Dallas last month following arthroscopic knee surgery and an arrest, takes the roster spot of another former Cowboy, Bobby Carpenter. He'll play primarily on special teams.
Tue, Oct 19, 2010 11:18:00 AM

Cowboys released FB Deon Anderson with an injury settlement.

Arthroscopic knee surgery had knocked Anderson out until mid-October, and the Cowboys grew tired of keeping him on the roster. Undrafted rookie Chris Gronkowski will take over, though he's struggled in lead blocking so far.

Cowboys FB Deon Anderson will be sidelined 2-4 weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his knee.

Anderson was diagnosed with a torn meniscus, his third straight season with a knee problem. Chris Gronkowski will take over as the lead-blocker. Anderson is no lock to return to the starting job.
Thu, Sep 16, 2010 05:26:00 PM

Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News doesn't see FB Deon Anderson making the Cowboys' final roster.

Anderson has a misdemeanor deadly conduct charge hanging over his head along with a couple other legal issues. He may have to beat out youngsters like John Phillips and Scott Sicko on special teams to stick around.

Updating a previous item, Cowboys FB Deon Anderson has been charged with a misdemeanor deadly conduct charge.

Anderson allegedly pulled a gun on a man, presumably a valet attendant at the restaurant he visited earlier in the week. Anderson was already arrested and released for outstanding traffic warrants the same night. He's put his Cowboys future in jeopardy with the incident.
Wed, Feb 3, 2010 08:06:00 PM

Cowboys FB Deon Anderson was arrested early Tuesday morning on traffic warrants after he was involved in a disturbance at an Addison, Texas restaurant.

Anderson "exchanged words" with a valet attendant and a security guard. Police confiscated two weapons from Anderson's vehicle, he was arrested for the outstanding traffic warrants. Anderson was released later in the morning.
Tue, Feb 2, 2010 07:23:00 PM

Cowboys FB Deon Anderson recently underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.

Anderson underwent a scope on the other knee twice in the past two years. He's expected to be healthy in time for the team's offseason conditioning program in March.
Thu, Jan 21, 2010 10:12:00 PM

Cowboys FB Deon Anderson is in danger of missing Sunday's game because of strep throat.

Tight end John Phillips would be used as a lead blocker against the Redskins if Anderson can't go.
Thu, Dec 24, 2009 10:09:00 AM

Cowboys FB Deon Anderson has recovered from in-camp knee surgery and resumed practicing without limitations.

Purely a lead blocker/special teamer, Anderson finished 2008 with just four touches. He'll pave the way for Marion Barber and Felix Jones this season.
Mon, Sep 7, 2009 09:58:00 PM

Cowboys FB Deon Anderson is out for four weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.

It's the same knee Anderson had scoped early last season. The one month recovery time will leave Anderson questionable for the season opener. Backup Julius Crosslin was expected to push Anderson and will have a shot to impress the coaching staff.
Thu, Aug 13, 2009 10:04:00 PM

Practice squad fullback Julius Crosslin could push incumbent Deon Anderson for his job at training camp.

Expect Anderson to get "pushed" but not lose his roster spot or starting job. He's been a solid blocker in the running game for the Cowboys.
Tue, Jul 14, 2009 09:37:00 AM

Cowboys FB Deon Anderson got into a fight with LT Flozell Adams on the flight home from Philadelphia following Dallas' Week 17 loss.

Anderson said he and Adams laughed about the incident Monday and that they're fine, but it's just another in a long line of chemistry issues demonstrating the current insanity between the players in Dallas.
Tue, Dec 30, 2008 12:56:00 PM

Cowboys FB Deon Anderson returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since undergoing minor knee surgery in mid-September.

Anderson isn't likely to suit up for Week 5, but he could be ready by the Cowboys' Week 6 game against the Cardinals. His presence would bolster an already stellar rushing attack.
