Panthers first team to start four QBs this season

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina rookie Matt Moore will start
Sunday's game against Seattle, making the Panthers the first team
to start four quarterbacks this season.

Moore got the call after 44-year-old Vinny Testaverde was among
the Panthers' inactive players. Testaverde did not practice all
week due to what coach John Fox called general soreness.

David Carr, who has been ineffective this season, was listed as
the No. 2 quarterback.

Moore, who played at UCLA and Oregon State, was undrafted before
signing with Dallas. He was one of the Cowboys' final cuts before
the season and was signed by the Panthers two days later.

Because of numerous injuries, Moore played briefly in six games
before Sunday. He had completed only 14 of 32 passes for 166 yards
and three interceptions and a passer rating of 21.1.

The Panthers' quarterback situation has been in disarray since
Jake Delhomme was lost to a season-ending right elbow injury in
Week 3.

The Panthers also were without receiver Keary Colbert (knee),
giving Drew Carter the start.

Seahawks safety Brian Russell (abdomen) was active despite
missing two practices during the week.
