  • Panthers' Derek Anderson: Not on injury report
    By RotoWire Staff

    Anderson (illness) isn't on Wednesday's injury report, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports. Anderson dealt with an illness earlier in the week but apparently is healthy ahead of Sunday's game against the Jets. He'll continue serving as Cam Newton's (thumb) backup.

  • Anderson was held out of Monday's practice due to an illness, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. Like Anderson, third-string quarterback Garrett Gilbert was also absent from the practice due to an illness, leaving Cam Newton as the only healthy signal caller on the roster. The Panthers will likely quarantine both Anderson and Gilbert to avoid contaminating Newton or any other players, but head coach Ron Rivera is hopeful that at least one of the two quarterbacks will be healthy enough to dress for Sunday's game against the Jets.

    By RotoWire Staff

    Anderson completed two of seven passes for 17 yards in Sunday's 34-13 loss to the Saints. Anderson featured for Carolina's final two drives, with the Panthers trailing 34-13 with four minutes remaining when he entered the already-decided contest. Although starter Cam Newton threw three interceptions, Anderson only figures to play in similar blowout situations as long as Newton is healthy.

  • Panthers' Derek Anderson: Still backing up Newton
    By RotoWire Staff

    Anderson is listed as the No. 2 quarterback on the Panthers' unofficial depth chart for Wednesday's preseason game against Houston, ESPN's David Newton reports. With Cam Newton (shoulder) presumably out, Anderson figures to get the start in what likely will be a brief appearance from the first-team offense. The Panthers didn't bring in any serious competition for the backup job this offseason, showing confidence in Anderson's ability to handle the role for a seventh straight year.

  • Panthers' Derek Anderson: Starts Sunday night
    By RotoWire Staff

    Anderson started at quarterback and threw an interception on his lone passing attempt in Sunday night's loss to the Seahawks. Anderson was promoted to the Panthers' starting quarterback job after Cam Newton violated team dress code, and although Anderson was only slated to play Carolina's opening series, he still threw an interception on the team's first offensive play. The veteran returned to his backup position thereafter, and figures to serve as the Panthers' second-stringer as usual going forward.
