Panthers receiver Steve Smith is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Saints and will play, despite having a dislocated finger.
Smith dislocated his middle finger during practice Wednesday and joked with reporters that it might keep him out. It would take a lot more to keep Smith, known thorughout the NFL for his toughness, from playing against the Saints.
Via the Charlotte Observer, Panthers coach Ron Rivera gave a humorous quip when asked about Smith's dislocated finger.
"Well, he's got nine other ones," he said.
