One of the most recognizable celebrities in America, Michael Strahan, is opening up after he suffered a tragic accident. While trying to work on one of his many cars, Strahan accidentally hurt his pinky.

At this time, it is unclear if a part of his pinky was actually severed by the accident or if doctors amputated the end of it. Either way, Strahan is telling viewers he will not be working as his own mechanic any further. Watch him talk about losing part of his finger in the video below!

"I just won't mess with the cars in the way that I was because if you do, you might lose a piece of your digit," Strahan joked in the video. "You gotta be positive about everything."

Strahan is most famous for his days as a professional athlete in the NFL. Since retiring, he has gone on to host numerous television programs and currently works for Good Morning America.

"I'll be fine, I'll heal up," he insisted. "Fifteen years in the NFL, nothing like this! ...After all these years I'm done playing, what is wrong? What is wrong with me? But I'll be fine, I thank you guys so much,” said Michael.

The news comes after Strahan was absent from Good Morning America earlier this week. It seems viewers now know why!
