Explains finger injury

13 Jul, 2015

Fallon returns to The Tonight Show after a 10-day hospitalization and explains his finger injury. What he thought was a broken finger was actually a ring avulsion injury, and he was sent to another hospital for specialized microsurgery. Many people with the same injury lose their finger. The six-hour surgery involved taking a vein from his foot to help repair the finger.
