Rivera: Anderson's frustration over role led to release

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Panthers coach Ron Rivera said C.J. Anderson's frustration with his smaller-than-expected role on offense contributed to the team's decision to release the former 1,000-yard rusher midway through the season.

Rivera said he spoke recently to Anderson and could sense the veteran running back's frustration over not being more involved in Carolina's offense.

Christian McCaffrey is the team's starter and rarely leaves the field, playing in 96 percent of his team's offensive snaps - by far the most of any running back in the league.
