Ronnie Lott on college kid who amputated finger: courageous
It's been big news for a while: Mesa State College senior Trevor Wikre amputates finger so he can avoid seeing his season end. Former San Francisco 49ers cornerback Ronnie Lott called Wikre's move "courageous." That is the word Lott used on the Dan Patrick radio show yesterday. Lott, you may remember, did the same thing when he was injured while playing for the 49ers in 1985. "He now has that badge of honor of being courageous," Lott said. Lott said he doesn't have any regrets doing it.
