Panthers QB is throwing miniature football in rehab

They toss a child's toy, a blue and green football made of foam. But at least Carolina Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme is throwing again.
"I'll be throwing the big ball again in a month or so," he said this week after a rehabilitation session inside Bank of America Stadium.
Right now, though, it's still the Nerf football. Delhomme is limited to 20 throws of 10 yards by trainer Ryan Vermillion, who is managing Delhomme's recovery from the Oct. 18 Tommy John elbow surgery that wiped out most of his 2007 season.
"I'd like to throw more," Delhomme said. "I think I can go a little longer and a little farther with it, but we don't want to push it." Full Story – Observer
