AZ Cardinal Rashad Johnson

The Most Gruesome

NFL Injury You've Ever Seen

Unless you're NFL legend Ronnie Lott ... you can't feel Rashad Johnson's pain -- but you can see it ... 'cause now there's a photo of the incredibly gruesome finger injury the NFL safety suffered Sunday.

If you haven't heard ... the Arizona Cardinals player crushed his left middle finger during the game against the New Orleans Saints -- but didn't realize he'd actually lost the tip until he took off his glove ... and partial digit was left behind.

Late Monday ... Johnson tweeted a pic of the photo, saying ... "Blessed to be able to still go out and do what I love this season. #thankful #trulyblessed"

Yes, he's planning to play this weekend -- which will seem even more amazing once you see the pic of the bloody finger (if you dare).

It's no big deal ! Those fingers were only getting in the way, since he can only count up to six.

No big deal!! Has happened before! Dec. 11, 1983, Chicago Bear, Mike Singletary, lost the tip of the middle finger on his left hand, had it stitched back on and demanded to return to Chicago’s game at Minnesota. Adding to the legend, a half-crazed Singletary returned with a wrapped-up hand and began screaming at Vikings offensive lineman Dave Huffman, telling him the Vikings wouldn’t score.

Minnesota didn’t score. The Bears won, 19-13.

I think this was a very disgusting injury. God bless him and I hope he is still able to play. That is a rare type of injury. I saw it on you tube and I found it disturbing

That finger looks gross, but props to him for trying to come out and play this Sunday. God bless him and hope his finger is healing.
