Arizona Cardinals S Rashad Johnson was in the news this week because he lost the top of his middle finger in the team’s loss to the New Orleans Saints. Johnson says that he expects to play this weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Johnson was injured during a punt coverage play and didn’t return to the game. He was taken to a New Orleans hospital and the doctors shaved down the bone on his finger and stitched it back up together.
Johnson practiced without pads yesterday and says that he is going to try to get back onto the field this weekend.
