News: Anderson completed 7-of-12 passes for 83 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason opener against the Bills.
Impact: Few teams feel better about their backup quarterback, which is probably a good thing when the starter is coming off four straight 100-carry seasons and playing behind a shaky pair of offensive tackles. Cam Newton is one of the few signal-callers with enough size and strength to hold up for a full 16 games under these circumstances, but the Panthers are still glad to have Anderson, who won both of his starts last year. If he gets another shot to play and is again impressive, he could draw interest as a potential starter in free agency next offseason.
