 Another game, another injury to a Carolina Panthers quarterback.
Coach John Fox said Monday that David Carr sustained a concussion late in Sunday's loss to Tennessee and his status for next week's game against Atlanta is uncertain.
``He's still be evaluated,'' Fox said. ``We'll keep you posted.''
Fox also said center Justin Hartwig (broken right thumb), receiver Steve Smith (hip) and defensive end Julius Peppers (toe) were injured against the Titans. None has been ruled out of the Atlanta game.
But the biggest concern for Fox is Carolina's endless troubles at QB. With Carr and Vinny Testaverde (Achilles' tendon) banged up and original starter Jake Delhomme (elbow) out for the season, undrafted rookie Matt Moore is the only healthy QB. It could force Carolina to sign yet another quarterback this week.
``I wouldn't say that's not a possibility,'' Fox said.
Carr, who missed a game last month with a sore back, started Sunday ahead of Testaverde, who is battling tendinitis in his right Achilles' tendon. Carr struggled against the Titans, completing just 15 of 27 passes for 107 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the 20-7 loss.
Carr, who had trouble finding receivers all day, was sacked seven times. He was knocked out of the game complaining of dizziness after being hit by Titans defensive tackle Tony Brown with 3 minutes left.
Moore, who was picked up off waivers from Dallas in September, replaced Carr and was 2-of-5 for 36 yards and an interception.
Vikings
Test Monday showed that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was recovering from the concussion that knocked him out of the game against San Diego. He even showed a sense of humor when he arrived at team headquarters Monday morning.
``He said, 'Hi, I'm Donovan,''' coach Brad Childress said of his first conversation with Jackson the day after a scary injury.
Jackson was making light of a serious situation in the second quarter of the Vikings' 35-17 victory Sunday. The second-year quarterback was injured after scrambling and taking a hit to the head as he dived to the turf. Jackson said he was knocked unconscious and was frozen on the ground in a peculiar position, with his right arm sticking straight out.
A number of players on both teams took a knee in prayer, but Jackson got up after several minutes and watched the second half from the sideline.
Childress said Jackson will be tested again Tuesday.
``I don't know what day he will practice on,'' said Childress, who added the team will consider bringing in another quarterback this week. Backup Kelly Holcomb is still recovering from a whiplash injury.
