CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Struggling David Carr was demoted to the No. 3 quarterback for the Carolina Panthers on Sunday against San Francisco.
Vinny Testaverde was the starter, and undrafted rookie Matt Moore was listed as the backup. Carr was the emergency No. 3 quarterback.
The 44-year-old Testaverde returned after missing last Sunday's loss to New Orleans with a sore back. Carr started in his place against the Saints, and was 10-of-22 for 95 yards and two interceptions before being replaced by Moore early in the fourth quarter.
The demotion comes after Carr signed a two-year, $6 million free-agent deal with Carolina in the offseason following a five-year stint as the starter in Houston. But when original starter Jake Delhomme was lost to a season-ending elbow injury in Week 3, Carr has thrown three touchdown passes, five interceptions and has a passer rating of 58.3.
Receiver Dwayne Jarrett (knee) was among the inactive players for Carolina Sunday.
For the 49ers, receiver Jason Hill (groin) did not dress.
