Typing as I hear from the radio...

Index finger, throwing hand, thought it was just a bruise, practiced Wednesday, saw a hand specialist who said he can play through the injury and plans to play through the injury Sunday - will wear splint when not playing, further damage is 'unlikely' per the hand specialist.

:lmao:
 
OP says it's the throwing hand. The index finger seems like it would be way more painful than Romo's pinkie.

 
As if I didnt have enough problems already deciding on quinn over big ben this week. Laame :hot:

Try throwing a football without using your index finger, then try throwing one without using your pinkie. I guarantee you'll throw a better pass without using your index finger.

I just did and I guarantee you won't. I'm not an NFL QB but I think how you throw a football is a pretty universal motion. The forefinger is what provides the "guidance". It's the last digit to leave contact with the ball. Without the index, I wasn't putting enough pressure on the back third of the ball as it left my hand. Meanwhile, my pinky didn't do shi*. My observation anyway. Anyway, reports are that he can grip the ball fine so I'm not sure the discussion we're having here is relevant to Bardy's situation.

I should have worded it differently. The amount of pressure you have to put on the finger is significantly less on the index finger than the pinkie.
 
With Winslows injury and who they're playing this week I thought Edwards would have a great week but now with this develop[ment I might consider sitting him. It's obvious they will run Lewis a lot more.

Not totally sure why they would risk him playing if he's not 100%. Lets be honest, they wouldn't lose that much against Houston if Anderson were to start. Plus they're not going anywhere anyway.

Because Romeo is the coach you're probably right. If anyone else were the coach the benefactor would be Harrison, but unfortunately anybody else isn't our coach.
 
Cleveland Browns quarterback Brady Quinn has right index finger fracture

Brady Quinn has a small fracture in his right index finger, but is expected to make his third straight start on Sunday.

Coach Romeo Crennel said the fracture was discovered on an X-ray, which was taken after Quinn complained of soreness in the finger after Wednesday's practice.

Quinn was examined by a hand specialist, who cleared him to play, the coach said.

"This is a small fracture," Crennel said.

Quinn will wear a splint on the finger when he's not practicing or playing.

Harrison didn't even practice yesterday, and neither did Wright.
 
also i'm no hand specialist, but you can't really compare one injury to another.

there are three bones and seperate joints in each finger, and i'd imagine the exact location, and severity, of the break would determine if one could throw a football or not.

 
Brett favre could throw with the bloody stump of his wrist were his hand severed in a farm implement accident. Some guys are Chuck Norris tough and some guys are Tony Romo.

 
Quinn said his fractured finger, which the former Notre Dame star hurt in Monday night's win over the Bills, was not a factor in his poor performance. Quinn, though, was not clear why he didn't get to finish the game. "You would have to ask Coach why I was pulled," he said. "He was upset with a couple of decisions I made out there. I didn't have any idea that I was on such a short leash." Crennel was adamant that Quinn would remain Cleveland's No. 1 QB. "Brady has not lost his job," Crennel said. "He is still the quarterback and we are going to through the week and prepare him and he is going to play."
