Weinke expected to start for Panthers

Barring a significant recovery by Jake Delhomme, backup Chris Weinke is expected to start for Carolina on Sunday against the New York Giants.

Weinke took all the snaps in practice this week as Delhomme nursed an injured right thumb. Delhomme has also struggled this season, including an interception against Philadelphia on Monday night that ended the Panthers' hopes for a comeback win.

In anticipation of Delhomme not playing, the Panthers activated quarterback Brett Basanez from the practice squad. Basanez may open the game as the No. 2 quarterback.
