QB Delhomme Throwing for the First Time Since Surgery

Good news for Panthers QB Jake Delhomme, who I caught up with at the NFL Experience last weekend in Glendale. ESPN’s Pat Yasinskas is reporting that Delhomme started throwing a football for the first time since his surgery on Monday. Delhomme has thrown abotu 20 passes a day at about 10 yards in distance in the teams training room. “It feels great, no pain at all,” Delhomme said in the article. “I’d like to do more than 20, but they’re not going to let me win that battle. We’ll keep doing this and, hopefully, go to a big ball out on the field in about a month or so.”

The Panthers need Jake back in a big way in 2008. They limped to a 7-9 season with Delhomme down, and QB’s Vinny Testaverde, Mike Moore and David Carr trying to lead the team. Didn’t work. If nothing else, Delhomme’s injury should show the Panthers how much he means to the franchise in and out of the huddle and in the locker room.
