So, I saw earlier that ESPN reported, citing "sources" that Matt Moore was going to start at QB for the Panthers this weekend.
Well, I'll see that and raise the worldwide leader one.

The Herald has learned that Steve Smith will start at WR, but the chances of getting Jordan Gross back at LT seem slim. I'll even throw in the following: RB Jonathan Stewart will be listed as questionable Friday, but he's going to play too.
Of course Matt's starting this weekend. Has that not been made sufficiently obvious by now?
Here's the deal. Delhomme has a broken right middle finger. He's not going to be ready for a few weeks, if then. In fact, if there's a point in the next two weeks when the Panthers are mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, he'll probably go on injured reserve immediately.
Sounds goofy, I know, given the way his season and theirs has gone. But that's the way they think.
-- Moore certainly didn't have many weapons at his disposal Thursday, as RB DeAngelo Williams and WRs Muhsin Muhammad and Dwayne Jarrett were held out of practice.
While Williams is expected to be back, how would he feel about his debut if he was handing off to Tyrell Sutton and passing to Charly Martin?
Ay yi yi. That's what it's come to.
