Paul Richardson scored the game-winning touchdown for the Seahawks against the 49ers on Sunday — but the touchdown isn’t the most impressive part. It was what Richardson went through prior to making the play.
Richardson suffered a compound fracture of his right ring finger on Seattle’s opening drive of the game. His teammate Doug Baldwin told ESPN the graphic specifics.
“I don’t know if I’m allowed to tell you guys this but he dislocated his finger,” Baldwin said. “It came out of his skin and he’s sitting there bleeding, his bone is out of the skin. He goes into the locker room, sews it up and tapes it up, comes back out and scores the game-winning touchdown.”
The Texans enter this game with just a 2-6 SU and ATS record in their last eight road games per the OddsShark NFL Database.
