Panthers salute Delhomme's courage

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

The Panthers announced that quarterback Jake Delhomme has been selected as their winner of this year's Ed Block Courage Award.

Each of the league's 32 teams gives this award. The award is supposed to go to a guy who "exemplifies and displays courage'' and is voted on by players. There is no doubt Delhomme, who has made a successful return from Tommy John elbow surgery in 2007, fits that profile.
