CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -David Carr practiced again Thursday, but Carolina coach John Fox still held off naming 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. He was asked Thursday if he would consider a platoon with Carr and the 43-year-old Testaverde, and said: ``I really don't know at this point. I really can't answer that.''
Carr became Carolina's starter when Jake Delhomme sustained 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.
Carr went through his full practice since the injury Wednesday, and said he felt well enough then to play.
Running back DeShaun Foster (turf toe) returned to practice after missing Wednesday's workout and said he'll play against the Colts. Linebackers Dan Morgan (Achilles) and Adam Seward (calf) missed practice again and will likely miss Sunday's game.
