David Wright sits with swollen thumb

By Adam Rubin

NEW YORK -- It was not Thursday's 86 mph pitch to the head that caused David Wright to sit out Friday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers. Instead, it was an injured right thumb, which Wright hurt bracing himself after going to the ground.

Wright did not suffer a concussion, Terry Collins said. The third baseman tested himself running in the afternoon and experienced no symptoms.

The Mets hope Wright will return to the lineup Saturday.

"The thumb is pretty swelled up," Collins said. "He wants to play."
