Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson suffered a gruesome injury to his finger during the team’s Thursday night football game against the Los Angeles Rams.
Wilson, 32, was going into his motion to throw the ball in the third quarter when his hand got caught against the arm of Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who was going up to block the pass. Wilson’s finger appeared to bend all the way back, dislocating it at an extremely awkward angle.

Video of the injury can be seen below, but be warned, it’s not for the faint of heart.
ESPN NFL analyst Mina Kimes summed the injury up well, tweeting simply, “STOP SHOWING IT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.”
Wilson has been with the Seahawks for his entire career and has played in two Super Bowls, winning Super Bowl XLVIII against the Denver Broncos. Before the game today, Wilson posted a message to his 5.5 million Twitter followers.
TONIGHT is for YOUR GLORY JESUS!!!
