Arizona Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson suffered a bizarre and gruesome injury in the midst of the team’s blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 3. According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, the 27-year-old lost the top of his left middle finger and did not realize it until after he removed his glove.

Johnson had surgery yesterday. Bone was exposed so must watch for infection.



Somers alleges that the injury took place during a punt return in the second quarter as the Alabama product attempted to tackle Darren Sproles. There is a possibility that Johnson smashed it into the turf, but it’s currently uncertain if that is what actually caused the top of the finger to be removed.

Johnson’s injury happened on a punt return, tackling sproles. Not sure what happened, might have smashed in ground. #AZCardinals
