CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -David Carr practiced for a second straight day for the Carolina Panthers on Thursday, but coach John Fox again held off making him the starting quarterback ahead of Vinny Testaverde for Sunday's game against Indianapolis.
Fox said Carr, who has been slowed by a compression fracture in his lower back, responded well to consecutive practices.
``He's looked good. I thought he had a good practice today,'' Fox said. ``He didn't have any setbacks.''
Fox has said Carr will play if he's healthy, but wouldn't name him the starter. He was asked Thursday if he would consider a platoon with Carr and the 43-year-old Testaverde.
``I really don't know that at this point,'' Fox said. ``I really can't answer that.''
Carr became Carolina's starter when Jake Delhomme suffered a season-ending right elbow injury in Week 3.
Carr was then injured on a sack against New Orleans. He was carted off the field and replaced by undrafted rookie Matt Moore. After receiving treatment, Carr returned in the second half and led the Panthers to a comeback win.
But Carr couldn't play the following week, and the Panthers signed Testaverde. After only four days of practice, he threw for 206 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Carolina's 25-10 win at Arizona.
On Wednesday, Carr went through his first full practice since the injury and said he felt well enough then to play.
``When you don't practice for 2 1/2, three weeks, it takes time for any player. I don't know who it is,'' Fox said. ``He's made good progress.''
Linebackers Dan Morgan (Achilles' tendon) and Adam Seward (calf) missed practice again and will likely miss Sunday's game.
