Jimmy Clausen is the Panthers' starter

After coming on in relief of Matt Moore in each of the first two games of the season, Jimmy Clausen is the Carolina Panthers' starting quarterback.

Panthers coach John Fox said today that Clausen will start, Darin Gantt of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Clausen is entering the starting lineup more quickly than the Panthers expected him to when they selected him in the second round of this year's draft, but Moore hasn't played nearly as well as they expected him to when they anointed him as their starter this offseason.

In two games this season Moore has completed 20 of 49 passes for 307 yards, with two touchdowns and four interceptions. Clausen has completed seven of 15 passes for 59 yards, with no touchdowns and one interception.
