Undrafted rookie Moore passes Carr as Panthers backup

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Struggling David Carr was demoted to the
No. 3 quarterback for the Carolina Panthers on Sunday against San
Francisco.

Vinny Testaverde was the starter, and undrafted rookie Matt
Moore was listed as the backup. Carr was the emergency No. 3
quarterback.

The 44-year-old Testaverde returned after missing last Sunday's
loss to New Orleans with a sore back. Carr started in his place
against the Saints, and was 10-of-22 for 95 yards and two
interceptions before being replaced by Moore early in the fourth
quarter.

The demotion comes after Carr signed a two-year, $6 million
free-agent deal with Carolina in the offseason following a
five-year stint as the starter in Houston. But when original
starter Jake Delhomme was lost to a season-ending elbow injury in
Week 3, Carr has thrown three touchdown passes, five interceptions
and has a passer rating of 58.3.

Receiver Dwayne Jarrett (knee) was among the inactive players
for Carolina Sunday.

For the 49ers, receiver Jason Hill (groin) did not dress.
