Rivera says Cam's backup in Carolina still uncertain

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) While Cam Newton remains the clear-cut starting quarterback in Carolina, his primary backup remains largely uncertain.

Kyle Allen started the first two preseason games and appears to have the edge over third-round draft pick Will Grier, but the reality is neither QB has taken full advantage of his opportunities - and extra playing time - with Newton resting his shoulder.

Taylor Heinicke was the No. 2 guy last season, but he's dropped to fourth on the depth chart and hasn't been getting as many reps as Allen and Grier in practice.
