Panthers | Derek Anderson next in line
Mon, 25 Aug 2014 10:33:32 -0700
Carolina Panthers QB Derek Anderson will start against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the team's final preseason game, and he'll be the starter in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if QB Cam Newton (rib cage) isn't ready by then. Newton's injury increases the likelihood that the team will keep QB Joe Webb on roster, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Carolina faces an undervalued Bucs defense in Week 1. If Anderson were to start, he shouldn't be considered in any leagues.
