That laceration? Kyle Orton dislocated his right intermediate phalanx and the dislocated bone burst through his skin. The wound will need stitching. I would suggest ether and immediate administration of trans-dental electromicide. That, or burn the corpse before they can breed.
From what little I've read, open dislocations involve ligament damage. The dislocation occurred on the index finger of his throwing hand. That's the release finger vital for accuracy. Until Orton can resume his duties sabotaging the Broncos, rookie Tom Brandstater will fill in.
