The Panthers came out of the game bruised.
In addition to Jake Delhomme's chest injury, FB Brad Hoover (ankle) and Tony Fiammetta (head) left the game in the second half.
Hoover was on crutches in the locker room after the game. He said an X-ray of his right ankle revealed no broken bones. He had missed two of the Panthers' three previous games with back spasms.
Receiver Muhsin Muhammad (knee), free safety Charles Godfrey (ankle), and tight end Dante Rosario (knee) were inactive, joined by running back Tyrell Sutton, tackle Garry Williams, guard Duke Robinson, and defensive tackle Nick Hayden. A.j. Feeley was the No. 3 (emergency) quarterback.
