After finishing up their final walk-through, the Panthers are now on their way to Baltimore, for tomorrow night's preseason opener.
Panthers coach John Fox said all the expected things, that he'd play his starters about a quarter, and that all these chances are important to the evaluation of his team.

What he wouldn't say is how he'd rotate his quarterbacks.
Obviously Matt Moore will start, but beyond that he wouldn't say.
Judging by the way they went through Wednesday's walk-through, however, it appears rookie Jimmy Clausen will be second in line. Clausen took all the second-team reps this morning, with Hunter Cantwell third.
Tony Pike will get what's left over, and Fox did say his intention was to get all four some time. Pike has received very limited snaps over the last week, and is clearly the fourth of four.
Eleven players won't even make the trip, including the four on the physically unable to perform list (WR Steve Smith, RB Jonathan Stewart, RT Jeff Otah and LB Thomas Davis). The others staying behind are: CB Chris Gamble, S Aaron Francisco, LB Jordan Senn, WRs Charly Martin and Trent Guy, RB Mike Goodson and T Garry Williams.
