Carolina rookie Jimmy Clausen has been cleared to return from a concussion and practiced Wednesday. That likely means that Clausen will get the start over Brian St. Pierre, who played last week, only a few days after signing with the Panthers.
Ironically, it looks like the Panthers will face their former quarterback, Jake Delhomme. It sounds like he'll get the start for Cleveland because of an injury to rookie Colt McCoy. Delhomme played for the Panthers from 2003 through last season and took the team to a Super Bowl.
