Sporting-related finger injuries are common in the setting of contact sports. Traumatic rupture of the flexor digitorum profundus tendon (FDP) from its insertion point has been described as 'jersey' or 'rugger' finger. We report a case of jersey finger associated with a zone III intra-tendinous rupture in a 13 year-old boy who presented seven weeks post injury. In the literature to date, only one previous case has described a sporting-related simultaneous 'double' FDP rupture.
