Panthers' Delhomme inactive for third straight week
Delhomme, downgraded to doubtful late in the week, hasn't played or practiced since sustaining ligament damage in his right thumb in a loss to Philadelphia on Dec. 4, and was inactive against the Falcons.
Chris Weinke made his third straight start for Carolina.
As expected, quarterback Michael Vick was active for the Falcons. Vick had been listed as questionable early in the week with a groin injury.
Falcons cornerback Jason Webster was inactive for the seventh straight week with a groin injury. Defensive end John Abraham was in uniform and had a cast on his left hand after having surgery Monday for a thumb injury.
Joining Delhomme on the inactive list for Carolina was backup receiver Drew Carter (ankle), who was downgraded to doubtful after missing Friday's workout.
