It was a rough day for the Carolina Panthers on the opening Sunday of the NFL season.
Quarterback Matt Moore was injured late in the fourth quarter of the Panthers' 31-18 loss to the New York Giants after being sacked by defensive end Osi Umenyiora near his own goal line. Moore, who fumbled on the play, walked gingerly off the field with athletic trainers by his side. Panthers coach John Fox said after the game that Moore sustained a concussion.
Moore, who finished 14 of 33 for 182 yards and three touchdowns, was replaced by rookie Jimmy Clausen.
Carolina wide receiver Charly Martin also sustained a concussion.
