CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Vinny Testaverde was back on the field Wednesday for the Carolina Panthers in the role of starting quarterback.
His backup, however, remains a mystery.
The 44-year-old Testaverde was a late scratch Sunday after waking up a day earlier with a stiff back. Testaverde, who missed one game and portions of another earlier this season with a right Achilles' tendon injury, practiced without difficulty Wednesday.
``He looks a lot better today than he did Sunday morning,'' coach John Fox said.
Fox again said Testaverde would start Sunday against San Francisco if he remained healthy. Fox wouldn't say whether David Carr, who struggled in Sunday's loss to New Orleans, or undrafted rookie Matt Moore would serve as Testaverde's backup.
``Those will be decisions we make as we go through the week,'' Fox said. ``We announce that an hour and a half before kickoff.''
Carr, signed by the Panthers in the offseason, completed only 10 of 22 passes for 95 yards and two interceptions against the Saints. He was repeatedly booed by the home fans, who started chanting ``We Want Moore'' late in the first half.
Moore eventually replaced Carr early in the fourth quarter after Carr's second interception. Moore completed eight of 14 passes for 66 yards and an interception.
Fox said Monday he didn't want to play Moore too much as he continues to learn the offense and the NFL game.
