Found December 08, 2012 on The Last Angry Fan:
Lions defensive end Willie Young suffered a nasty finger injury last month in Detroit’s November 18th game against the Packers.  During an attempted tackle of Green Bay running back James Starks, Young’s left middle finger was sliced at the top knuckle, with the resulting cut being so deep that nerves were severed and the bone was exposed  At the time Young knew it was bad but decided to leave his glove on, keep playing, and deal with the finger later. Said Young… “I refused to look at it,” he said. “I said we will worry about it when the game is over. When I did take that glove off, this is not what I was expecting to see. But this is what I have to deal with.” This is what the Lions defensive end saw when he finally did the big reveal following the game (warning, very grotesque injury ahead)… I don’t know about you all, but I’m officially grossed out. Since stitches weren’t an option because of how deep the gash was, Young seriously considered amputating the mangled digit, a la Ronn

Lions-Packers Live Blog, Second Half

Detroit jumped out to a 14-point lead, then proceeded to give it away in a highly Lions fashion.
