Delhomme will not need surgery on strained elbow

Story body

CHARLOTTE (AP) -- They're calling it a strained elbow, and that means Carolina Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme will not need surgery.

However, he's listed as day-to-day leading up to Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

Coach John Fox says Delhomme underwent an MRI today, and it revealed no serious damage.

Delhomme was injured late in the third quarter of Carolina's 27-20 win over Atlanta on Sunday when he was sacked by John Abraham. Delhomme continued to play until the next series, when he winced in pain and clutched his elbow after throwing a short pass to Brad Hoover. He was replaced by David Carr, who led the Panthers on two scoring drives to snap a tie and give the Panthers the win.

Fox wouldn't say if he expects Carr to take the majority of snaps in practice this week.

Delhomme has thrown eight touchdown passes and just one interception, and his 111.9 rating is tied for third through Sunday.
