Whitner not worried about thumb

Bills safety Donte Whitner is just two weeks removed from surgery to repair ligaments in his thumb, but don’t tell him to worry about long term damage to the opposable digit if he plays this week or next.

When asked by the Associated Press Monday if he would need to wear a cast on his hand to protect the thumb when he returns to the lineup Whitner did not seemed overly concerned about it.

“It’d be something small on there. (to protect the surgical cut),” Whitner told the AP. “I don’t really need this thumb for the rest of my life, you know?  It’s not too much.”

Gotta respect guys that love to play the game that much.
