Jermichael Finley said he was able to finish Friday’s practice and has no doubt that the toe injury he suffered against San Francisco last Sunday has healed enough to play. He also confessed that he didn’t realize how debilitating a toe injury really can be.
“I feel great. The lights (are) on, right? I’ll be out there, for sure,” Finley said. “It’s a tad bit painful. We’ve got 48 hours to play the game, so there’s a lot going to be done (until) then. I feel great. I’ve got a big pain tolerance. So I’ll be out there, I’ll be fine. I’ve been playing football forever. You get in the league, they try to make things bigger than it is. It’s a toe injury. I’ll be out there.
As Finley is learning, toe injuries can creep up on players who don't take them seriously. still, he looks like he'll give it a go on Sunday and makes a solid start against Washington this weekend. He was targeted eight times in Week 1, reeling in five passes for 56 yards and a touchdown.
