Carolina Panthers coach sends wide receiver to locker room after sideline argument
Football players get thrown out of games from time to time. Usually, though, it’s not the team’s head coach calling for the player’s removal from the game.
On Sunday, Carolina Panthers interim head coach Steve Wilks sent WR Robby Anderson to the locker room following a sideline argument. According to NFL RedZone, it started with an argument between Anderson and a Panthers assistant. Wilks came over to Anderson, and the Carolina wideout apparently said something that led to his removal.
Wilks just sent Robby Anderson to the locker room.

Anderson is Carolina’s leading wide receiver. He entered Saturday with 13 catches for 206 yards and a touchdown.
The Panthers ending up losing Sunday’s game 24-10 to the Los Angeles Rams If this is Anderson’s last game with the Panthers, at least he got to learn that the costumed mascot, Sir Purr, is a panther and not a bear.
“What’s that bear doing?”
Robby Anderson being introduced to Panthers mascot Sir Purr is too much ?
