you are probably right. i am not saying that it was a dislocation. the announcers were baffled as well. but from the look of the injury and the swelling they thought that it was a dislocated finger and that john wanted someone to pop it back into place.
but the finger swelled up pretty quickly. then they saw a tight shot of the finger and noticed that the injury was on the lower knuckle of the middle finger.
then they talked about a lot of things, but they really did not know what to think.
