Arizona Cardinals to sell severed foam finger for Rashad Johnson?


Arizona Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson suffered probably the most gruesome injury you will see all NFL season on Sunday. It’s always tough to watch a player blow out their knee or take a shot to the head, but I can’t imagine anything more graphic than a player losing the tip of his finger. Johnson did just that against the New Orleans Saints, and he shared a few photos of it for anyone who dares to look at them.

On Tuesday, the Cardinals tweeted that they are currently working on a prototype for a foam finger that would pay tribute to Johnson and his missing digit. They better make this happen. The guy lost a freakin’ finger. He deserves more than just a round of applause.

H/T For the Win
