When the New York Giants take the field against the Philadelphia Eagles in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs this weekend, safety Xavier McKinney will do so with a renewed appreciation for his career.

During the Giants' bye week in November, McKinney was in Mexico when he got in an ATV accident that shattered his hand. McKinney missed seven games with the injury, and he told the New York Post that he came close to losing several fingers as a result of the crash.

"I don't think people understood the magnitude of what it was," McKinney said. "They didn't really understand how broken that it really was. I think a lot of people didn't understand that I coulda really lost three fingers. I was almost close to losing three of my fingers."

McKinney recently posted X-rays of his broken hand and fingers on Instagram, and he said the doctor wasn't even sure he could repair it due to the severe damage.
