Ravens' Mason will play through different break in finger

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Derrick Mason said the fracture in his right pinky finger is in a different place than a previous break that led to a pin being surgically inserted into the finger earlier this season, *The Baltimore Sun* reported Wednesday.

The 14-year veteran said the latest injury won't prevent him from playing Sunday vs. the Carolina Panthers.

Mason's finger was fractured during the Ravens' loss at Atlanta last Thursday night, when he had four receptions for 48 yard and a touchdown. Mason had the pinky in a splint at practice.

"There's nothing they can do this time," Mason said. "It's just something that's going to have to heal on its own.

"Hopefully it won't hamper me more than a couple weeks. When I'm out there, I don't really think too much about it."
