Wide receiver Lavelle Hawkins dislocated his right index finger against the Bengals and was disturbed to see a bone poking through his skin.
He was able to smile while showing off his stitches on Wednesday, but said the injury is still painful. He’s not getting much sympathy in the locker room, however.
“He’s just going to have to tough it out I guess,” Munchak said with a smile. “With a lineman, you break a couple of fingers, so what? Tape them up and play.”
Nate Washington (hip) is expected to play, but if he can't go, Hawkins would be a Week 10 sleeper.
