Jimmy Clausen back in for the Panthers

Panthers rookie quarterback Jimmy Clausen is playing again, although this time it wasn’t John Fox’s choice.

Matt Moore was knocked out against the Saints after taking a hard hit from Saints defensive tackle.  It appeared his shoulder is hurt.  His return is questionable.

Carolina is now without their top two running backs and their starting quarterback. But Drew Brees has only 91 yards in 21 attempts, so the Panthers are hanging around, down 7-3.

UPDATE: Clausen, DeAngelo Williams, and linebacker Dan Conner are all out for the rest of the game.
