Ex-NFL WR Mohamed Massaquoi Reveals He Had His Hand Amputated After ATV Accident (VIDEO)

New York Jets v Cleveland Browns

Mohamed Massaquoi only lasted four years in the league after he was a second-round pick by the Cleveland Browns back in 2009. The former Browns wide receiver recently revealed in a video for The Players Tribune that his left hand was amputated after an ATV accident last April.

Massaquoi stated he took a turn way too sharply and the vehicle rolled as a result.

“The next thing I feel is like an explosion went off in my hand,” Massaquoi said. “I’m in shock so I don’t feel it, but I’m very aware of what’s going on because of the blood everywhere.”

Massaquoi believed he had only broken his hand, but several of his friends thought his hand looked as if it went through a meat grinder because of how badly it looked.

“What I’m seeing and what my friends are seeing are completely different. They’re seeing what actually happened, I’m seeing what I think happened,” Massaquoi said. “I’m thinking that I just broke my hand. My friend, on the other hand, thinks my hand just went through a meat grinder or something like that. Meanwhile you can see the panic and the fear in everybody.”

He now wears a mechanical prosthetic device.

“There’s an adjustment there to say, ‘This part of me is no longer (there),’ but are a lot of other parts that are still there … This just gives you a perspective of how precious life is, how fast things can change,” Massaquoi said. “You go from joyriding to flying in a helicopter finding out your hand will be amputated.”
