Miami Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso is playing his team’s playoff game with his hand heavily bandaged. Buffalo Bills linebacker Zach Brown played through a hand injury for much of the 2016 season.
He is not impressed with Alonso.
They talking about his hand. I play over half the season wit a messed up hand lmao you soft 47

Without at least knowing the extent of Alonso’s injury, Brown is out of bounds here.
Admittedly, it looks bad. According to Brown, the two hand injuries are not being treated the same.
But just because the injuries are to the same part of the body does not mean that they’re the same. One can be significantly more crippling than the other.
With that said, the Dolphins and Bills are division rivals. Assuming these two remain on their respective teams, this kind of chatter will add a little spice to the team’s two meetings in 2017.
Ultimately, that’s not a bad thing.
