Panthers Carr misses second straight practice; Testaverde on deck

Story body

CHARLOTTE (AP) -- It's looking more like veteran Vinny Testaverde could start at quarterback for the Carolina Panthers this weekend at Arizona. Panthers backup quarterback David Carr missed practice for a second straight day yesterday with a sore back. Carr had replaced injured starter Jake Delhomme, who has decided to undergo season-ending surgery. The Panthers signed 43-year-old Testaverde on Wednesday. Undrafted rookie Matt Moore has been taking snaps in practice for the banged-up Panthers. Moore was signed a month ago. Coach John Fox wouldn't say which quarterback he'd use if Carr can't play Sunday. Carr did throw on the sidelines yesterday, but he didn't drop back or run. He says the pain wasn't as bad as he expected. He hopes to practice today. (Copyright 2007 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
