IT'S UNLIKELY that Nick Sundberg's name will ever be mentioned in the same sentence as NFL tough guys Bednarik, Butkus, Mean Joe, Tatum, Youngblood or Dawkins.
But don't sell Sundberg short.
The Redskins' long snapper played the second half of Sunday's win over the Saints with a broken left arm.
Sundberg said he suffered the injury with a little under a minute to go in the first half when his arm was smashed between a helmet and a facemask on a blocked punt that the Saints returned for a touchdown.
The undrafted Sundberg, in his third year with the Redskins, said he refused to get an X-ray because he wanted to continue to play.
