In addition to fighting for a chance to start in his rookie season, Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen will have to fight pain in his right big toe.

Clausen missed practice Monday with a sore toe but returned Tuesday and said that doctors tell him it would "probably be after the season until I feel 100 percent."

The toe originally was injured against Michigan State almost a year ago during his senior season at Notre Dame and he played the rest of the season while taking painkilling shots. He had surgery in January to repair tendon damage in the toe.

Clausen downplayed the injury, saying, "It just gets sore at times. That's football."

The rookie has completed just 17-of-37 passes (45.9 percent) for 152 yards with zero TDs and two interceptions in two preseason games.
