Fans and viewers were left in shock as they saw the whole incident live televised live across CBS.
Tony Adams suffers a grisly injury to his finger
The gruesome incident took place around the first quarter, when he dove in to attempt a red zone interception. The New York Jets starting free safety was defending a second-down pass to the front left pylon as he dove right to the ground in front of Quintin Morris, the Bills’ tight end. While doing this, the second-year safety’s hand got caught underneath his body as he slid headfirst out of bounds. The ball eventually fell incomplete, with 6:08 remaining on the clock of the opening quarter.
Fans and viewers were left shocked when Adams stood up, and television cameras showed a grisly injury to his left pinky finger. Tony Adams suffered a gruesome injury which caused the bone in his finger to come protruding out through his skin and even ripping through his glove. Following the injury, Adams immediately jogged off the field into the locker room instead of heading towards the sideline.
