Panthers leaning toward Pike or St. Pierre at QB

While Carolina Panthers coach John Fox declined to rule out rookie quarterback Jimmy Clausen for Sunday's game against the Ravens during a conference call with Baltimore media Wednesday, it's beginning to appear that Clausen will sit out the upcoming contest.

According to the Associated Press, Fox said it's likely that either rookie Tony Pike or recently-promoted Brian St. Pierre will start at quarterback against the Ravens. Clausen is dealing with a concussion suffered during the Panthers' 31-16 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneer this past Sunday.

Fox told Baltimore media that Clausen is a game-time decision, describing the second-round pick as being "day-to-day."Pike is a sixth-round pick who is blessed with height (6 feet, 6 inches) and mobility.

"I think he's got good height," Fox said. "He's got good accuracy. He's a guy that did it at a high level at the University of Cincinnati, and he's had a little playing time here a couple weeks ago. We're still learning about him. Obviously, we like him. We drafted him. So that's kind of what I know about him."
