Lucky for us, Strahan wasn't out long and was back on TV the next day with a wounded pinky finger.
Michael Strahan returned to "Good Morning America" on Wednesday wearing a bandage on his hand, explaining that he had missed Tuesday's show because of a hand injury that cost him part of his pinky finger.
'I had a little accident. Lost a little bit of my pinky, ' Strahan told his fellow GMA co-hosts, Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos.
"A guy before just said, 'Michael, we pinky swear.' Or something like that", he said on Wednesday morning's show, according to Us Weekly.

The athlete confessed that it was all because of grabbing people on the field. "That's probably the most pain I've ever been in".
