Carolina Panthers interim head coach Steve Wilks sent wide receiver Robbie Anderson to the locker room midway through Sunday’s 24-10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
Anderson had a fiery exchange with wide receivers coach Joe Dailey on the sideline earlier in the contest. He wasn’t targeted in the first half.
Wilks addressed the incident postgame.
“No one is bigger than the team. …I don’t want to put a lot of energy on one individual,” the coach said, according to team reporter Bill Voth.
Soon, Anderson would respond as well.
Carolina has reportedly been shopping Anderson, who signed a two-year extension in 2021 and is under contract through next season.
The 27-year-old caught only 13 passes for 206 yards and one touchdown through the first five games of the 2022 campaign.
