Arizona Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson is a badass.
The former Alabama Crimson Tide player lost part of his left middle finger after making a tackle Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.
According to Arizona Republic reporter Kent Somers, Johnson injured the finger during a punt return after tackling the Saints’ Darren Sproles. Johnson took off his glove after the play, and the end of his finger was still in his glove. Johnson finished the game with three tackles in the Cardinal’s 31-7 loss.

Johnson had surgery on the injured digit yesterday, where doctors shaved away part of the exposed bone. Infection is a concern, so doctors will continue to watch the injury.
At Alabama, Johnson had 11 interceptions in his career at the Capstone, and had a combined 82 tackles as a senior.
