Odell Beckham Jr.’s hands are some of the most important hands in professional sports. He makes ridiculous catches with them, so he needs all of his digits (that’s fancy people speak for fingers) to be working properly. On Sunday, they didn’t.
WARNING – GRAPHIC IMAGE OF FINGER BEING BENT IN WAY IT SHOULD NOT BE BUT YOU SHOULD LOOK ANYWAY
Look at OBJ’s finger taking a beating from the ol’ pigskin.
“I jammed my finger,” Beckham said the game. “It just popped out. It’s not the first time. It’s just not a comfortable feeling. You run off, and your finger is out of place.” He said that the finger was just swollen, and that he’d be fine.
When Beckham got back to the sideline after it happened, they popped that sucker back in there:

Overall, it was a rough afternoon for Beckham, who also tweaked his ankle during the game, and briefly left because of it.
WR Odell Beckham, who hurt his finger on Sunday, is "sore," Ben McAdoo said. "He's fighting through a bunch of things."

Despite having a couple of scares, Beckham was able to get out of the game as healthy as possible for somebody who experienced those things.
