    Cardinals Rashad Johnson lost the top of his middle finger Sunday. @KentSomers reports Johnson removed glove, part of his finger STILL IN IT



    Boggle. Wonder what happened to the guy to lose part of a finger!?

    Ah. The twitter account above had some information:

    Kent Somers ‏@kentsomers
    Johnson's injury happened on a punt return, tackling sproles. Not sure what happened, might have smashed in ground. #AZCardinals

    Kinda reminds you of the legend of Ronnie Lott cutting part of his finger off.

    Yeah, definitely, about Lott. I remember that.

    Anyways, here is a more thorough write up.

    Ouch. Somers goes on to report that Johnson had surgery on his finger (it was actually his left middle finger) on Sunday, and the bone was exposed, so infection is a factor. He lost the finger at the first knuckle, and doctors shaved it down. Somers said that it’s believed Johnson lost the tip during a Darren Sproles punt return, though ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Johnson will have to go back to watch film to see what happened.

    Again: This kid lost part of his middle finger during a game, and he needs to go back to actually see what happened. He didn’t notice the “separation” until he took off his glove, and … well, that’s just scary. Never underestimate the pain-killing value of adrenalin.

    I think he just jammed it on Sproles' thigh from the replay I saw, though its nearly impossible to tell.

    That's pretty cool, though, to be playing so hard, you lose a finger and don't notice it. +2 Manpoints.

    I actually saw this happen way back in JV ball 20+ years ago. A teammate was making a tackle and his finger got caught in the ball carrier's face mask which basically mangled his finger. A complete freak show...
