Randy Moss says Kaepernick gave him his first dislocated finger

As San Francisco 49ers receiver Randy Moss prepares to take on his old team the New England Patriots, he took time to give his young QB Colin Kaepernick a little confidence boost.

“Man, he dislocated my finger,” Moss said, via CSNBayArea.com. “He had to put one them Randy Johnson fastballs on me. When it hit my finger, I felt my finger pop — dislocated it. So I had to come back to the sideline and the doctor had to pop it back in.”

We're sure Randy, in his many years in NFL and playing football almost all his life, never had a dislocated finger; but nice try.

Moss started in just one game this season with the 49ers, playing in 13 games with 21 catches on the season for 326 yards and two TDs, which is probably the reason why he's been able to stay healthy. 

His snaps were up last Sunday with Mario Manningham out, and it's likley he'll seeing a good amount of snaps this Sunday, with or without Manningham. Moss says he's up to the challenge and loves what he sees from Colin.

“I try to take pride in taking care of my body and finessing the balls as they come to me,” Moss said. “But Kap throws hard. He’s very strong and he works out every day. And I didn’t really say anything to him other than, ‘Keep doing what he’s doing.’ My finger will heal up. It hurt. It hurt. It really did. I tried not to show any tears. I don’t know if they caught me crying or not. But it did hurt, but like I said, it’s not the time of the year to be crying because it’s late in the season. Everybody’s hurting. Everybody’s ailing. Everybody’s feeling a little bit of pain. Some go home and some keep moving. And we want to be the team that keeps moving.”
