A Panthers official just said tests Friday on QB Matt Moore all turned out negative, so he gets the ever-popular "day-to-day" designation.
Moore went down in a heap late in Thrusday's preseason finale, with what appeared to be a knee problem. However, it was later termed a "lower leg contusion." Expect Moore to be sore, but the impact on this weekend's decision-making could be profound.
If they were thinking about keeping two quarterbacks on the active roster, that thought's probably gone, until they know Moore's fine.
One possible outcome of this is that they'll keep all three current QBs, meaning Brett Basanez gets a pass — or at least for the first two weeks. If they get to the end of Steve Smith's suspension and Moore is fully recovered, they might try to stash Basanez on the practice squad to create the spot.
