Panthers 2nd year QB Tony Pike had elbow surgery today. This probably means that Pike will either be placed on IR, or cut with an injury settlement. Before this I had only heard that Pike had a shoulder or rotator cuff problem, so is elbow a new injury, or just a reassment of the old injury? Either way, those type surgery are bad news for a QB trying to win a job in the NFL.
QB Jimmy Clausen missed practice today with a knee injury, it's just my guess, but i bet it's the result of the hit he took against the Bengals. No word on how long Clausen will be out, but Cam Newton has been named the starter for the 4th preseason game.
