Give Baltimore WR Derrick Mason the tough guy award for Week 10. Mason, who left Sunday’s game with a dislocated shoulder on the team’s second drive, returned to play the second half to help the Ravens to a 41-13 win over the Texans in an effort coach John Harbaugh called “courageous.”
Mason was injured when he jumped for a high pass along the sidelines and braced his fall with his left arm, causing his left elbow to jam into the turf. He had tests done at halftime, and returned to make all three of his receptions in the second half, as well as a two-point conversion.
“You’ve got to help the team,” said Mason. “If I can run, I can help the team. This thing wasn’t unbearable. I just had to go out there and be smart about it. There were a couple of times where I could have possibly gotten some more yardage, but I stepped out of bounds. I’m just out there trying to help the team as much as possible.”
