Ravens WR Derrick Mason Has Finger X-Rayed

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Derrick Mason had an x-ray on his finger last night, Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun reports.

"It looks like it's broken again, the same finger," Mason said of the right pinkie he had surgically-repaired two weeks ago. "It doesn't look good."

Mason, 36, broke the finger during his 8-catch/100-yard game in the Ravens' win over the New England Patriots on October 17. Mason played through the pain the following week against Buffalo before having pins inserted into the digit during the bye.

Mason caught 4 passes for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win against the Miami Dolphins, and added four receptions for 48 yards and a touchdown in last night's loss to the Atlanta Falcons. After catching the touchdown, Mason was clearly favoring his injury as he returned to the sidelines.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh may give an update today on Mason's injury situation.

The Ravens have veteran depth at receiver with T.J. Houshmandzadeh and last night's return of Donte Stallworth, but Mason is no stranger to playing with pain. In 2008, Mason played the last part of the year, including playoffs, with a dislocated left shoulder, so it's doubtful that a broken right pinkie will keep on the sidelines on November 21 against the Carolina Panthers.
