Los Angeles Rams running back C.J. Anderson has heard the jokes about his weight gain.

Anderson admitted he's put on a few extra pounds during an appearance on "The Dan Patrick Show" earlier this week, placing the blame on the upcoming birth of his daughter.

"Right now, I'm 5-8, about 235. So I'm about 10 pounds over what I (typically) am," Anderson said. "I've got a baby due in April - got a daughter due in April, so I'm kind of having that man pregnancy weight.

"Everybody has the jokes of what I weigh or how I look or how I'm built," he continued. "I feel like I'm moving deceptively. I feel like I'm trying to put myself in the best positions."

Anderson rushed for 123 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries in the Rams' NFC divisional-round win over the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday. With that performance, he became the first player in NFL history to have at least 100 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown in each of his first three games with a team.
