Ralph Furley Posted December 9, 2006 Share Posted December 9, 2006 Chris Weinke, QB CAR News: ESPN's John Clayton reports that Panthers QB Chris Weinke will start vs. the Giants in Week 14, taking the place of Jake Delhomme, who has a torn ligament in his thumb and did not take any snaps in practice this week. Delhomme is still officially questionable and coach John Fox called Delhomme a gametime decision. Analysis: Missing three days of practice says a lot about Delhomme's thumb, which either has a sprained or torn ligament inside it depending on who you ask. TO Weinke's credit, he's taken all the snaps this week in practice and should be a decent replacement for the Panthers. For Fantasy owners, the news is not good: Delhomme should only be used in leagues if he starts, and Weinke should only start for owners in desperate situations. Man, how does this effect the value of Steve Smith? (If true) I know it's selfish, but as a SS owner I'm concerned. Thank god I have a bye in my local this week. Hopefully if this happens it's a one week thing. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
