Hey, uhh, don’t look at this if you’re squeamish.
Bradley Chubb's gruesome finger injury--hopefully just a dislocation; expected to come back in the game pic.twitter.com/ihGqZewoGQ— Pack Pride (@PackPride) October 14, 2017
Bradley Chubb went down with a really tough finger injury during the third quarter of NC State’s win against Pitt.
He looks like he’s absolutely writhing in pain, but may not have been from the actual finger. It appears hs just got spooked. That is very understandable.
Injury update: DE Bradley Chubb, dislocated his left pinky finger, is fine. He was freaked out at the sight of his pinky out of wack— Joe Giglio (@jwgiglio) October 14, 2017
Chubb returned to the game and got a pass deflection, among other highlights. That’s incredible given the fact that it means he had to stick that meaty paw in the air directly in the path of a pass traveling at a very high velocity.
At first the fear was obviously that this is a broken finger, but it turned out to be “just” a dislocation. Football is strange in the fact that we hope for one fairly terrible injury over another because it sounds less painful. Either way, Chubb soldiered through in a way I certainly could not. Respect.
