NFL Rumors: Vikings Long Snapper Lost Part Of His Finger Vs. Rams, Returned To Game


September 28, 2018

Don’t ever question Kevin McDermott’s toughness.

The Minnesota Vikings long snapper lost part of his left pinkie finger Thursday night during his team’s Week 4 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, according to ESPN’s Courtney Cronin. Astonishingly, McDermott underwent treatment for the injury and returned to the game.

McDermott’s reported injury probably took place in the second quarter during Dan Bailey’s successful 37-yard field goal attempt, according to ProFootballTalk’s Curtis Crabtree. The helmets of Rams defensive tackle Michael Brockers and Vikings offensive lineman Tom Compton appeared to sandwich McDermott’s hand with gruesome consequences.

David Morgan replaced McDermott for two special teams plays while Vikings trainers stitched close McDermott’s wound. McDermott then returned to his normal role, presumably out of love for the game.
