Last month, we are informed that Marcus Davenport had to have part of his left pinky finger amputated based on an injury he suffered back in college.
This week, we got an upclose look at the New Orleans Saints defensive end’s hand.
“For those who are curious, here is a shot of Marcus Davenport’s hand from practice today. He had his left pinky partially amputated this off-season,” said Luke Johnson.
While playing at the University of Texas San Antonio, Davenport injured his left pinky but did not get a plate inserted until last year. The plate would later break and cause an infection that prompted the amputation this offseason.
His pinky injury alone caused the former first-round pick to undergo multiple surgeries.
The 25-year-old is expected to be healthy enough to play in the 2022 season despite his injuries. This will mark his fifth year in the league.
In his four seasons so far, Davenport has a combined 113 tackles, with 62 of those being solo tackles and 51 being assisted. He also has 23 tackles for loss and 21 sacks.
