While tackling New Orleans Saints’ running back Darren Sproles during a punt return on Sunday, Arizona Cardinal safety and special teams specialist Rashad Johnson “lost” his finger above the first knuckle. He didn’t even notice the injury at first.
According to the Arizona Republic‘s Kent Somers, Johnson walked to the sideline after the play, removed his glove, and discovered that a significant part of his left middle finger was “missing.”
