Panthers reach terms with Feeley; put McCown on IR

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers have to come to terms with veteran quarterback A.J. Feeley and have placed backup Josh McCown on injured reserve.

Career Statistics
Passer rating: 69.6

Yards: 4,070

TD/INT: 27/29

The move comes one day after McCown injured his left knee and ankle in a loss to Philadelphia in relief of struggling starter Jake Delhomme. McCown was wearing a protective boot on Monday.

Feeley, who was released by Philadelphia this month, provides a veteran presence behind Delhomme, who has committed 11 turnovers in his last two games.

Coach John Fox said Monday that Delhomme will start next week at Atlanta. Matt Moore is the only other quarterback on the roster.

Feeley is a nine-year veteran who was in his second stint in Philadelphia. He's also been with Miami and San Diego.
