Delhomme missed Wednesday's workout with a broken finger. Matt Moore is expected to start at quarterback in Sunday's game against the NFC South rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Running backs DeAngelo Williams (ankle) and Jonathan Stewart (Achilles' tendon) also didn't practice Wednesday. Williams was injured during last Sunday's loss to the New York Jets.

Fullback Brad Hoover (ankle), wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett (ankle), defensive end Charles Johnson (pectoral), defensive tackle Tank Tyler and cornerback Captain Munnerlyn (concussion) missed practice, too.

Panthers coach John Fox said that linebacker Jon Beason, who was charged with misdemeanor assault Monday, wouldn't face disciplinary action until after his case is resolved.
