The Quarterbacks Take a Hit

<P>It looks like back-up quarterback Dameyune Craig will be put on the injured reserve. It's a tough break for a guy who has hung around this team for three years without getting playing time during the regular season.

Craig finally got the call against the Dolphins in the third quarter when George Seifert pulled Chris Weinke in the third quarter because of a shoulder injury. Craig left with just over 6 minutes to go with a mid-foot seperation on his right foot (it's also being referred to as a sprain of the ligaments) that will need surgery. The team is expected to put him on injured reserve.

Following the loss to the Dolphins, the Panthers personnel department started looking to see what quarterbacks are available. It's expected that they will bring some in on Tuesday for tryouts. One name that was tossed out as being available was former Panther, Jeff Lewis, who was cut in the pre-season after a couple of horrible performances. A more likely scenario could see Eric Zeier coming to Carolina. He was cut by Atlanta in the pre-season, and does have some experience in the West Coast offense.
