Carolina quarterback Jake Delhomme was held out of today's practice as the Panthers began preparations for Sunday's game at New Orleans.
Delhomme was off to the best statistical start of his career
until straining his right elbow against Atlanta on September 23rd.
He missed last week's loss to Tampa Bay.
Delhomme is hoping his elbow heals through rehab. If it doesn't,
he could choose to have season-ending surgery.
