Delhomme has broken finger

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- A broken finger -- not coach John Fox -- may bench struggling Carolina Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme.

Fox said Monday that Delhomme fractured a finger on his throwing hand late in Sunday's loss to the New York Jets and may not be available next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Matt Moore would likely replace him.

But Fox says that if Delhomme was healthy he would not be benched despite throwing four more interceptions Sunday and recording a passer rating of 12.7. Delhomme has thrown a career-high 18 picks with still five games left in the season for the Panthers (4-7).

Moore has not started a game since late in the 2007 season.
