Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 10 vs PIT (2 / -1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
It wasn't until the fourth quarter with the game well out of hand that C.J. Anderson got his first touch of the ball, a reminder of how far down the pecking order he is in the offense. After a handful of carries, the Panthers were content to get out of Pittsburgh with their tails firmly tucked between their legs. Anderson was released over the weekend and he didn't seem too broken up about it.
2018 Week 9 vs TB (1 / 1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
C.J. Anderson was the forgotten man once more in the Panthers offense, getting just one carry and featuring little in the expansive attack the team is relying on.
2018 Week 8 vs BAL (5 / 20 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
C.J. Anderson got rotated in on a few snaps, including some that featured both he and Christian McCaffrey in the backfield at the same time. Mostly Anderson was run between the tackles, hard-charging but showing little burst. The Ravens remained discipline with their tackling all game, with Anderson unable to break through for longer chunks.
2018 Week 5 vs NYG (4 / 9 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
C.J. Anderson played a distant second fiddle to Christian McCaffrey in this game, getting just a handful of carries. Unable to get into a rhythm, Anderson was stuffed on his totes in the second half, as the Giants did well to repel Carolina's rushing attack.
2018 Week 3 vs CIN (2 / 9 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 24 / 1 rec)
C.J. Anderson played second fiddle to the irrepressible Christian McCaffrey but managed to take advantage of all the defensive attention on his backfield mate. With both backs flanking Newton in the shotgun, McCaffrey veered out to the right flat, forcing a reaction from Cincinnati's defenders. Meanwhile, Anderson sneaked out to the left, caught a lofted pass from Newton and trucked upfield behind some excellent blocks from his offensive linemen. Anderson waltzed into the end zone for the easy score. Otherwise, Anderson was only on the field for two more snaps and contributed little.
2018 Week 2 vs ATL (3 / 31 / 0 rush, 2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
C.J. Anderson was almost a non-factor in this contest, with an unfavourable game script putting his style of play on ice. The Panthers started off the game with Anderson as the lone back and Christian McCaffrey flanked out wide, handing it to the former Bronco for a nice 23-yard scamper behind a pulling guard. After that point, however, Anderson was left to feed off scraps as McCaffrey continued to boss the backfield touches. Late in the game, Anderson came in to spell McCaffrey and committed a crucial error, a pass caroming off his hands on a simple check down and landing in the hands of a grateful Atlanta defender.
2018 Week 1 vs DAL (7 / 35 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
C.J. Anderson played second fiddle to Christian McCaffrey throughout, but gave the coaching staff plenty to ponder. The fleet of foot Anderson showed terrific patience, vision and burst to pick up small chunks of yardage that helped to wear the Cowboys down. Anderson spotted cutbacks and lapses by Dallas quickly and exploited them. His best carry was a beautiful red zone run; bending it left initially, Anderson spotted a crease between center and right guard, sidestepping into and then through the gap, weaving his way past would-be tacklers and unfortunately getting tackled at the one-yard line.
Latest NewsPanthers | C.J. Anderson done in Carolina (Mon Nov 12, 03:48 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB C.J. Anderson was released Monday, Nov. 12. Our View: Anderson rushed for over 1,000 yards with the Broncos last year but failed to fit with the Panthers as a backup behind Christian McCaffrey. He should get some interest on the open market from running back needy teams. The Panthers move on with Cameron Artis-Payne as the primary backup.
