CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Quarterback Vinny Testaverde will start Sunday for the Carolina Panthers against the Green Bay Packers.
Coach John Fox chose the 44-year-old Testaverde over a healthy David Carr, but declined to name him the permanent starter for the Panthers (4-5). Both Carr and Testaverde are 1-2 this season as the starter.
``He had a good week of practice and was able to get through the week, and I think that's good for him and good for us,'' Fox said Friday.
It's unclear if Testaverde will have his top offensive option, wide receiver Steve Smith, who is listed as questionable after missing his third straight practice Friday with a shin contusion. Fox said Smith will be a game-time decision.
Also on the injury report: defensive tackle Damione Lewis (shoulder) was questionable; cornerback Ken Lucas (hip), running back DeShaun Foster (toe) and safety Deke Cooper (shoulder) were probable.
