Jake Delhomme Placed On IR

Jake’s Delhomme season is finished. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Panthers will place Delhomme on IR after he was unable to throw in practice this week. Delhomme has been out since Week 13 after breaking a finger during a loss to the Jets. Former backup Matt Moore, who has come on in recent weeks, will continue to start for the Panthers.

While this injury may seem to portend the end of Delhomme’s career with the Panthers, that may not be so. Schefter points out that since the team owes Delhomme $13 million next season as part of the extension he signed before the season,it seems more likely than not that he will be back. Whether he would return to the starting lineup is another question though.
