Carolina Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme did not practice again Friday, making it still more likely that backup David Carr will start Sunday against Tampa Bay in Bank of America Stadium. Delhomme, who is listed as doubtful for Sunday on Carolina's injury report, said after practice that he has yet to throw a ball this week as he recovers from an elbow strained last Sunday. "I'm still holding out hope," he said. "When a couple of years ago or whenever I broke my thumb, I didn't take a snap until Saturday morning. So we'll see. I am feeling better; I'm gripping the ball, it feels pretty good. So we'll see from there."
