"Well it's good to know that my hand and finger are now fixed. Does anyone need screws?" Diehl tweeted following his surgery.
Diehl accompanied his tweet with an X-Ray image of his surgically repaired hand, which clearly showcases the work done to repair his mangled paw. And if you happen to have an incredibly weak stomach, the photo, seen here, probably isn't for you.
The offensive lineman revealed post-Super Bowl XLVI that he had played with a broken hand/finger for more than two months of the season, which would explain why he eventually had to have six screws inserted to fix what would normally only take a splint.
He started all 20 games for the Giants this season; the first 10 at left guard and the final 10 at left tackle after Will Beatty was placed on Injured Reserve (IR) with a detached retina. He's also started all 140 games he's played since being drafted by Big Blue in the fifth round of the 2003 NFL Draft.
