Cats Sign A.J. Feeley, Place McCown On IR

The Panthers placed backup quarterback Josh McCown on Injured Reserve on Monday and agreed to contract terms with quarterback A.J. Feeley, pending a Tuesday morning physical.

McCown suffered a sprained left knee in Sunday's opening game loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and is expected to miss up to six weeks, while Feeley will join the team immediately.

Feeley has played in 23 games and made 15 starts over five seasons with the Eagles and Miami Dolphins, completing 372 of 665 career passes for 4,070 yards and 27 touchdowns.
