Arizona Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson was the talk of the NFL, after it was learned that he suffered the most gruesome injury of the 2013-14 NFL regular season.
Johnson lost the tip of his finger — and then tweeted a photo of it — during Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints, when he attempted to tackle Saints running back Darren Sproles on a punt return.
Johnson learned of the injury when he took off his glove and the tip of his middle finger stayed inside.
In true professional form, Johnson just taped up the finger and continued to play. He officially earned bad ass status.
To show their support for Johnson and honor his toughness and willingness to play through anything, the Arizona Cardinals are now working on the prototype for a Rashad Johnson foam finger that we could soon see in large numbers throughout the stands.
The team tweeted out a photo of the prototype on Tuesday.

How great is that?
If you are a Cardinals fan or just someone that appreciates the toughness Johnson showed, then there is no way you can see one of the foam fingers and not buy one. Well done, Arizona.
