A dislocated finger will not stop Panthers WR Steve Smith from facing Saints

It would take more than a dislocated finger to keep the 13-year veteran from a chance to help avenge a 31-13 loss to the Saints two weeks ago in New Orleans. A wide receiver uses his fingers more than any part of his body.  Catch a football is not a very easy job to do, especially when you consider the velocity put on the ball from the quarterback.  Well today Steve Smith said nothing would hold him out the game.

“Yeah, it’s a minor thing,” Smith said. “It’ll be all right. I’ve had worse days. I’ve had better days, too.”

Smith injured a finger on his left hand trying to catch a pass that coach Ron Rivera says was tipped. Or as Smith said in his lovable but sarcastic manner, quarterback Cam Newton “threw me the hardest pass you could possibly throw in America … catch this missile.”
