Delhomme expects to play

next week against New Orleans

Quarterback Jake Delhomme said Sunday he thinks he will be able to play next week when the Carolina Panthers play New Orleans in the Superdome.

He was taken to a hospital during the fourth quarter of Sunday's 34-21 victory against the Arizona Cardinals after he was driven into the ground by defensive tackle Darnell Dockett. Delhomme said he had a CT scan of his sternum.

"They hit me where it hurts," said Delhomme, whose injury was officially described as a chest contusion. "As soon as I got hit, I felt it immediately. I couldn't catch my breath and I felt like it was my sternum.

"I got the CT scan and I think everything is good."
