Rashad Johnson loses top of middle finger

There are injuries every week in the NFL, and sometimes the broken bones and torn ligaments become a blur.

But Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson had one that’s hard to forget.

According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, Johnson lost the top of his left middle finger during yesterday’s loss to the Saints.

And put your breakfast down for a second, because the injury was discovered when he took off his glove — and the finger was still in it.

Johnson had surgery last night, and because the bone was exposed, there’s a concern about infection.

There’s no word, however, as to whether Titans owner Bud Adams is on the donor list, depending on how much of the digit Johnson lost.

    I guess now he can give the NFL his middle finger without getting fined?

    I certainly hope they don’t try to fine him for a dress code or equipment violation.

    Did he stay in the game?

    So the next time he flips off a ref, it just wont have the same impact…

    When will the madness end? Helmet to finger hits like this are compromising the safety of players futures I for one cant wait to see Lord Roger step in and put an end to all these flagrant helmet to finger hits. There is no place in the game for blatant cheap shots like this.

    Wonder what the bounty is for middle fingers?

    Before the game he had all fingers and toes and now, Roll Tide.

    Hardcore. I did read that he had some sort of finger injury. I had no idea that he lost some of it.

    How does this happen? Did he get his finger caught in a helmet and then get slammed to the ground? Sounds like about the only way that could have happened.

    Just Walk it off

    Same thing happened to Mike Singletary when he was with the Bears in the 80’s

    Hope he has a very speedy recovery and is 100% getting back in the game he loves so much.
