Cardinals DB Rashad Johnson lost tip of his finger making a tackle

Rashad-Johnson-CardinalsArizona Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson suffered an extremely uncommon injury during Sunday’s loss to the New Orleans Saints. Fortunately, his career is not in jeopardy. Unfortunately, Johnson’s middle finger will never be the same.

The Arizona Republic’s Kent Somers reported on Monday morning that Johnson somehow lost a piece of one of his fingers while making a tackle against the Saints. The injury apparently occurred on a punt return when he was tackling Darren Sproles. The details are enough to make you cringe.

Somers later tweeted that it was actually Johnson’s left middle finger, not the right. The Cardinals later shared a photo of Johnson’s hand. Don’t worry, it was bandaged up.

Hopefully he’s a lefty. We don’t have any pictures of the injury yet, which is probably a good thing. There’s something about a piece of a finger stuck in a glove that people probably don’t want to see on a Monday morning.
