Arizona Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson no longer has the top of his left middle finger attached after suffering a gruesome injury against the New Orleans Saints.

He had surgery Sunday, but the top of the finger won't be reattached.

Johnson told Arizona reporters today that he pulled his hand out of his glove and saw the tip of finger remained inside the glove and he was bleeding.

The injury may have happened during a punt return.
