Thomas Davis’ dislocated finger requires stitches, but not a play off

Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis dislocated his finger early in the first quarter on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, and the injury was so bad that it broke the skin and required stitches.

Still, Davis didn’t miss any of the Panthers’ 63 defensive snaps.

Defensive end Greg Hardy also had a hand injury, and he tweeted a photo after the game that showed his thumb bandaged and said he played 2 1/2 quarters with his thumb “torn open.”

Free safety Mike Mitchell told reporters after the game he played injured during the second half and would have an MRI on his lower-body injury on Monday. Rivera said he did not know of an injury to Mitchell.

Fullback Mike Tolbert had a leg wrapped after the game Sunday, and Rivera said it may have been because of dehydration. Rivera called the injury “soreness,” and he thought it developed on Tolbert’s final rush to the 1 on Carolina’s final drive.
