CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Quarterback Jake Delhomme and linebacker Dan Morgan were held out of practice Wednesday as the Carolina Panthers began preparations for Sunday's game at New Orleans.|
Running backs DeShaun Foster (team decision) and Nick Goings (concussion) also missed the workout.
Delhomme hasn't thrown since straining his right elbow against Atlanta on Sept. 23. He said he might do some throwing in practice this week, but said the decision is up to the trainers.
Delhomme, 2-1 as a starter and off to the best statistical start of his career, is hoping his elbow heals through rehab. If it doesn't, Delhomme could have season-ending surgery.
Morgan said Monday he has a partially torn Achilles' tendon. Although he said the injury is not season-ending, it will need time for the inflammation to subside.
Neither Delhomme nor Morgan played last Sunday against Tampa Bay.
Goings left that game after suffering a concussion on a kickoff return. Foster played the entire game, but had two fumbles and dropped two passes in the 20-7 loss.
