Panthers bench struggling Moore, bring in Clausen

BY foxsports • September 19, 2010

Carolina Panthers quarterback Matt Moore has been benched in favor of rookie Jimmy Clausen in the fourth quarter against Tampa Bay.

Moore was pulled after getting sacked and losing a fumble on the previous possession with the Buccaneers leading 20-7 on Sunday.

Moore, who started despite suffering a concussion in a Week 1 loss, completed just 6 of 16 passes for 125 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Clausen starred at Notre Dame and was taken by the Panthers with the 48th overall pick after a surprising slide in the draft.
