Carolina Panthers quarterback Derek Anderson returns

Carolina Panthers backup quarterback Derek Anderson returned to practice Thursday after sitting out two days with the flu.

He said he was feeling better, but he was fatigued easily during and after practice.

The Panthers had kept Anderson away from the team facilities since Monday once they learned he had flu-like symptoms.

“It was not good,” Anderson said. “I was good until Monday in the middle of meetings, and then I was like, nuh uh. No bueno. I just got up and left.

“I was in the bed from Monday until I got up at noon (Wednesday).”

Anderson was a full participant at practice as Joe Webb, the team’s third-string quarterback, replaced his red jersey with a white one and worked at receiver.
