18. Ronnie Lott Gets Amputated
Game: Game 16 NFL Regular Season, Cowboys @ 49ers
Watch it here
During a game against the Cowboys, the Hall of Fame defensive back had his left pinky crushed during a tackle. While legend has it that Lott chose to have it amputated in the locker room so he could get back into the game, Lott has since cleared that up: "The story goes that I cut it off right in the middle of the locker room-which I didn't." He actually just had it taped up so he could continue to play, but the following offseason, he chose to have the crushed pinky tip amputated. Salute to nine fingered legend.
