It’s come to this for the Carolina Panthers: Tony Pike and Brian St. Pierre split first team reps at practice on Wednesday, according to CarolinaGrowl.com.
Jimmy Clausen sat out the session because of a concussion suffered last week, and looks unlikely to start against the Ravens on Sunday. Pike is a sixth-round rookie that barely made the team out of training camp. St. Pierre,31, was signed to the practice squad last week. He’s thrown five passes in his NFL career. (Pike is expected to start, per Darin Gantt of the Rock Hill Herald.)
To make matters more depressing, the Panthers officially placed DeAngelo Williams on injured reserve and Jonathan Stewart also missed practice Wednesday. (We wrote about the Williams move earlier Wednesday.) In all, ten Carolina Panthers were listed on the injury report Wednesday that didn’t practice, including Jon Beason.
In related news, I’ve decided not to watch the Panthers-Ravens game on Sunday.
