NEW ORLEANS (AP) -Carolina starting quarterback David Carr required help getting off the field after a sack in the first quarter of the game at New Orleans on Sunday.
Carr was starting his second game this season for Jake Delhomme, who had not practiced the past week because of a sore elbow.
After making his way to the sideline, Carr was carted to the locker room holding his hand over his facemask. A Carolina spokesman said Carr hurt his back and was doubtful to return.
Second-string quarterback Matt Moore opened Carolina's next possession. Delhomme was in uniform as the Panthers' third quarterback and could only come into the game in the fourth quarter. Otherwise, Moore and Carr no longer could play.
