Jimmy Clausen was among six Panthers players on the inactive list ahead of Sunday’s season opener against the Cardinals.
Derek Anderson was the No. 2 QB behind Cam Newton, the No. 1 overall draft pick who was making his NFL debut. Clausen wasn’t on Carolina’s injury report, making this likely a coach’s decision on the 2010 second-round pick.
