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.” “(But) it’s crazy, you never think about a toe injury, but when you get it, you know about it, I promise you that.” For Fantasy football players, Finley’s a top-10 tight end play this week.
