For the first time, Mohamed Massaquoi revealed he had part of his hand amputated after an ATV accident, effectively ending his NFL career.

The former receiver was off-roading with friends last April when his ATV flipped and crushed his hand.

Making a turn " I take the turn too sharply, Massaquoi said in a video for The Players Tribune. And before I know it, my ATV loses control. The next thing I feel is something just feels like an explosion just went off in my hand. Im in shock, so I dont feel it. But Im very aware of whats going on, just because theres blood everywhere.

What Im seeing and what my friends are seeing are completely different " theyre seeing what actually happened, Im seeing what I think happened. Im thinking that I just broke my hand. My friend, on the other hand, thinks my hand just went through a meat grinder.
