One of the most gruesome stories so far this NFL season could actually get even worse. Arizona Cardinals free safety Rashad Johnson, who removed a glove during a game only to find part of his left middle finger still inside , is still in danger of losing more of the digit, Coach Bruce Arians told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Tuesday night. But the Cardinals are taking every precaution to make sure that doesn't happen, Arians said. That's why Johnson was pulled out of practice last week after banging his hand in practice last week, days after the injury occurred against the New Orleans Saints on Sept.

Arizona safety Rashad Johnson removed his glove after making a routine tackle and found something unexpected -- and horrifying -- inside. Part of his finger. The fifth-year safety lost the top part of his left middle finger while tackling New Orleans running back Darren Sproles on a first-half punt return during the Cardinals' 31-7 loss on Sunday, according to a series of tweets from Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. Apparently Johnson didn't realize what had happened until taking off his glove.

USC punter Kris Albarado was selected the Pac-12 Conference special teams player of the week for his performance in the Trojans' 17-14 victory over Utah State. Albarado, a third-year sophomore from Louisiana, placed five of seven punts inside the 20-yard line, including two inside the five. Albarado's effort helped USC defeat Utah State on a day when the Trojans offense stalled for much of the second half. Albarado, who succeeded Kyle Negrete as the Trojans' punter, is averaging 40.3 yards per punt.

After playing three consecutive games at the Coliseum, USC tight end Xavier Grimble and his teammates are looking forward to Saturday's game at Arizona State. "There are some tough games ahead but this is what it's about -- bringing a team together, going to hostile environments and putting on a show and executing," Grimble said. Grimble was in the spotlight against Utah State on Saturday. He scored his first touchdown of the season on a 30-yard pass from quarterback Cody Kessler and also had a nine-yard reception in the Trojans' 17-14 victory.

At least one person feels sympathy for Lance Armstrong. The disgraced cyclist got a vote of confidence over the weekend from fellow drug cheat Ben Johnson. "We are all human beings," Johnson told  insidethegames.com . "We all make mistakes in life. I feel for him. " Twenty-five years ago, Johnson won the 100 meters at the 1988 Seoul Olympics only to fail a drug test and be stripped of his gold medal. The incident ranked as sport's biggest doping scandal -- until Armstrong came along.

Brantford, Canada, the hometown of NHL legend Wayne Gretzky, unveiled a statue of the Great One on Sunday outside the Wayne Gretzky Sports Center. The next day, vandals besmirched the statue, spray-painting it. The statue depicts Gretzky hoisting the Stanley Cup over his head. The vandals painted Gretzky's face and jersey blue. City workers cleaned the statue Tuesday morning. Obvious solution to prevent this from happening again: Put up a statue of Marty McSorley to keep an eye on the Gretzky statue.
