Did not watch and did not see this on MB unless it was mentioned in another thread. Bleacher report showing picture of bloody finger injury.

Need proof that J.J. Watt is taking the Pro Bowl seriously? He showed off this bloody finger to Michele Tafoya, said his peace to Overlord Goodell and then went back out on defense on the next series for the AFC.

He will be fine. He has like 6 months to rehab the pinky. I do hope he won't need the elbow brace next year.

I think he might for protection.

Looks like a compound dislocation.

A friend played OLine for 8 yrs in the NFL. He has since retired, but his fingers today look like they were smashed repeatedly with a hammer on multiple occasions. From what I understand fingers are the first to go and they are constantly injured/mangled throughout a linemans career.

I heard he still wears the brace so his grandmother can find him easily on the TV. More proof that we need to drop Barwin & Cody. JJ needs to be the only light skinned dude on the line so his grandma can pick him out on the television broadcast easier!:kitten:

Why don't those guys get those nasty ass looking fingers surgically repaired since they aren't playing anymore?

Haven't you played Madden? Cody's black. As is Joel Dressen.... until he played for the Broncos. All of a sudden he's white again lol

My oldest son just finished five years of college ball as a right tackle. His fingers are already showing the wear and tear, and he's concerned because he's a musician, as well. 22 years old and doctors tell him that he's showing the signs of arthritis of a 70 yo.

Eh, he'll be fine I'm sure. The only one probably really concerned is that good looking girlfriend of his.

God that drives me crazy. Another thing is when you draft guys their picture shows up as a white guy and the player is a black guy or vice versa. To be clear I don't draft players based on their skin color but it's just kind of annoying.

I don't know about the rest, but Torry Holt had the doctors tell him if he played with the injury, it would be beyond repair permanently. He said his team needed him and went back out there. Dislocated it several times that season and it is now beyond repair.

Here you go.......Lott decided to amputate part of his left little finger, since he found it useless after the injury.

Why don't these ex-players get their fingers fixed? That's disgusting.
