Arizona Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson lost part of his left middle finger during Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints.
According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, Johnson’s injury occurred while he was tackling Darren Sproles on a punt return. He realized what happened after he took his glove off and a piece of his finger was still in it.
Johnson had surgery Sunday night, as Somers reports that doctors had to shave the down the bone to repair it.
