Johnson before losing part of his finger.
In all likelihood, Arizona Cardinals S Rashad Johnson wasn’t too focused on their 31-7 loss against the New Orleans Saints. Instead, he honed in on the fact that he lost the tip of his right middle finger.

The shock that must have electrified Johnson must’ve been unparalleled. To take off a glove and realize that a finger tip is gone is traumatizing.
Johnson underwent surgery to repair the injury, as seen in the photo below.
Since it was exposed, the doctors were worried about a possible infection. Part of the bone was shaved.
At least he got it back.
