Delhomme began shaking his arm and motioning toward the sideline
as soon as he delivered a short pass to Brad Hoover late in the
third quarter. David Carr played the rest of the game, finishing
off a 27-20 victory.
Delhomme said the injury actually happened earlier in the
"It didn't feel right," he said. "It was just kind of
bothering me a little bit. It's like a strain. Hopefully, it's just
a little muscle in there. We'll see."
The quarterback couldn't even make it all the way to the
sideline, dropping to a knee while still on the field before
finally walking off. Carr finished the touchdown drive and also
directed the Panthers to a field goal.
"It was too crucial a drive to stay in," Delhomme said. "We
needed to get points on that drive. I didn't want to be macho."
"I was able to throw a couple of more passes after that,"
Carr, the former No. 1 overall pick, was 3-of-4 for 56 yards in
relief. Delhomme, meanwhile, got his arm iced down and planned to
undergo an X-ray when he got back to Carolina.
"I tried to run the team like Jake had been doing," Carr said.
