August 12, 2011

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — Carolina Panthers quarterback Jimmy Clausen said he has been told by coach Ron Rivera that he'll start Saturday night's preseason home opener against the New York Giants.

Cam Newton, the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft, will likely be the first quarterback off the bench.

That's not a big surprise considering Clausen has been getting all of the reps with the first-team offense.

A home run by first basemen Dan Black to left field off of Hickory Crawdads’ starter Ben Henry (4-2, 2.66) gave the Intimidators a lead they held for a majority of the baseball game.
