Derek Anderson to start Sunday for Carolina
Former Scappoose High School and Oregon State quarterback Derek Anderson was named the starter for the Carolina Panthers of the NFL after Cam Newton was injured in an automobile accident earlier this week.
Anderson has thrown four touchdowns this season, leading the team to a 20-14 win over Tampa Bay on Sept. 7 in his lone start of the season.
He'll get his chance to go 2-0 against the Buccaneers on Sunday, as Carolina fights to draw even with the division leaders in the relatively sub-par NFC South. The Panthers are a half-game back of Atlanta and New Orleans, who are tied at 5-8 on the season.Add a comment
