Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson suffered a gruesome injury in his team's defeat to the Saints on Sunday, as he lost part of his middle finger, according to the Arizona Republic.

At this point, it's unclear exactly what happened to Johnson's left finger -- Somers acknowledged later that the injured finger was on his left hand, not his right -- but the newspaper writes that the injury occurred on a punt return when Jones went to tackle Saints running back Darren Sproles.

Johnson had surgery Sunday, and since the bone was exposed, doctors are concerned about a possible infection. Doctors also shaved his finger down to the first knuckle of his finger.
