Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan's finger injury was actually really disgusting

Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan's finger injury was actually really disgusting

Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan exited Sunday's loss to the Giants with a finger injury. He left in the third quarter of a win-and-in game, so that should have tipped off everyone that the situation was ugly. 

The next morning as players cleaned out their lockers, Kerrigan revealed that he actually had a compound fracture of his pointer finger. Bone hanging out, the whole nine yards. 

First, ew. 

Second, that's a horrible injury to have. Think about all the things you need your right index finger for! Pointing at stuff, typing like an old person, making peace signs– the list goes on. 

But this isn't the first time Kerrigan has injured his right hand. He fractured it in a game against the Buccaneers in October 2015 and needed surgery. The year before that, he played through a bone chip in there.

It's unclear if he'll need surgery this time. 

Frankly, if I'm Kerrigan's right hand, I'm starting to feel a little picked on. But you know how it is in football: Next man up mentality! That means you, lefty.

Former Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens joins Giants staff

Former Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens joins Giants staff

What a difference a year makes for Freddie Kitchens.

After a tumultuous season in his first year as the Browns head coach in 2019, Kitchens was fired at the end of the season. On Monday, reports surfaced that Kitchens would be joining new Giants head coach Joe Judge's staff in New York.

According to The Athletic's Bruce Feldman, Kitchens is expected to be hired as the Giants tight ends coach.

From head coach to position coach in just a month's time, that's quite the fall off for Kitchens.

Kitchens and Judge had previously worked together at Mississippi State in 2005. Kitchens served as the Bulldogs' running backs coach, while Judge was just starting his coaching career as a graduate assistant.

The two have not crossed paths since, but obviously maintained a relationship strong enough for Judge to bring the former head coach onto his staff.

Dwayne Haskins reflects on bond with Kobe Bryant from pre-draft workouts

Dwayne Haskins reflects on bond with Kobe Bryant from pre-draft workouts

Terrible news hit America on Sunday when word came out that basketball legend Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash along with his daughter and seven others. 

A tragic event for a man and a player that made an impact far beyond basketball. Bryant was known for many things, but more than any, it might have been his competitive spirit. A five-time NBA champion and an 18-time All-Star, Bryant's play was defined by a fluid game and an unstoppable spirit. 

For Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins, he got to see some of Bryant's spirit up close. Last year, before the NFL Draft, Haskins trained at Bryant's gym in Los Angeles, and their encounters made an impression on the signal-caller. 

"He's definitely a guy that brings a lot to the table as far as how he trains, how he prepares and what he expects out of his teammates. Very, very demanding," Haskins said of Bryant. "I want to be able to have that other tool, being able to have that edge that Kobe had. Of course, I play like that, but I'd be able to lead like that. That's why I studied Kobe."

Haskins is one of many young athletes that grew up watching Bryant, and for plenty, idolizing Bryant. 

After the news broke Sunday, Haskins reacted on Twitter.

Haskins said it well: RIP to a legend. Gone too soon.
