Derrick Mason says he broke his finger again

ATLANTA -- Baltimore Ravens veteran wide receiver Derrick Mason acknowledged that he broke his surgically repaired right pinkie finger against the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night at the Georgia Dome

Mason underwent X-rays immediately after the game and had his finger wrapped up. "It looks like it's broken again, the same finger," Mason said after leaving the locker room following a 26-21 defeat where he finished the game despite the injury. "It doesn't look good."

Mason said he'll have the finger examined again when the team returns to Baltimore today. Mason initially broke the finger during an Oct. 17 overtime loss to the New England Patriots. Then, he played through the pain against the Buffalo Bills before having the damage repaired with a pin inserted in the finger to aid the healing process during the Ravens' bye week. Now, Mason will likely have to play through the injury for the remainder of the season.
