Peete's Sunday start now questionable

Peete aggravated a finger injury in Wednesday's practice and has been downgraded on the injury list from "questionable" to "probable".

Charlotte, N.C. - Coach John Fox's decision for quarterback Rodney Peete to start the game on Sunday against Cleveland is now uncertain.  Peete aggravated an injury to his right middle finger in practice. 


Peete did not participate in practice on Thursday and has been reduced from "probable" to "questionable on the Panthers' injury report.


"If he's healthy, he'll remain the starter," coach Fox said. "We'll know more as game time gets closer."


Fox would not say who would start if Peete's injury kept him from playing on Sunday.  Both Randy Fasani and Chris Weinke did take snaps in Thursday's practice.


Peete has been plagued by this injury for several weeks.  The major concern is that the injury is on the quarterback's throwing hand.  Up until now Peete has been dealing with the injury.  However, he had the same finger hit at Wednesday's practice and was experiencing some pain on Thursday.
