At one point Sunday, Odell Beckham Jr. had to have his finger popped back into place during the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

On Monday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter showed us all why, and why the receiver’s finger is “sore.”

That’s just not right. Fingers are not supposed to bend like that.
The fact that Beckham Jr. came back into the game and played through that pain, and the pain of his ankle injury, which was clearly giving him problems Sunday, shows how tough this young man is. While maturity issues certainly continue to pop up, nobody can deny OBJ’s passion and desire to play the game are admirable qualities.
