On Tuesday, Michael Strahan was absent from Good Morning America, and on Wednesday, he returned wearing a bandage around his pinkie finger and explaining that he had lost part of it due to a “little accident.”
Well after much speculation about what exactly happened, Strahan posted a video to Twitter giving more of an explanation.
In his video, the former NFL player described how he was working on one of his cars when he lost part of the finger.
“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,” he joked, saying that he wasn’t planning on doing any mechanic work in the future after learning his lesson this time around.
On Wednesday, Strahan didn’t give details of how he had lost part of his pinkie, simply stating that he had an accident when he returned to Good Morning America.
“Lost a little bit of my pinky,” the 45-year-old told co-hosts Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos.
At the time, he showed of the bandage he was wearing and joked around about the injury. But after fans poured out concern and questions, it seems he felt he needed to be more transparent.

A knife-wielding homeless man allegedly threatened to kill 'Good Morning America' co-host Michael Strahan yesterday.

Andre Johnson, 25, allegedly made threatening remarks about Strahan and tried to stab a security guard with a serrated knife near the show's Times Square, New York City set about 8am. 

When questioned by police, Johnson said: 'I was there to kill Michael Strahan.'

New York Daily News reported security staff told Johnson to leave when he first demanded to see Strahan but he returned later with a blade.

When he threatened security workers, a police officer working for the network knocked the knife from Johnson's hand, according to the New York Post. 

Johnson was swiftly arrested and taken to the Midtown South police station where he allegedly told investigators he wanted to kill Strahan. 

A studio source told The Post that Strahan, a former NFL star, was not in danger or aware of the incident until later in the afternoon. Members of the public were not affected. 

'An individual lunged at one of our employees and was heroically tackled by a police officer,' ABC News' Heather Riley told The Wrap.

'We understand the man was taken in for psychiatric evaluation. It was a scary situation but thanks to the fast actions of NYPD the situation was quickly under control.  Michael was never in any danger.'

It's not known why Johnson allegedly threatened Strahan.

Johnson was charged with attempted assault as a felony, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon. He was awaiting arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court Tuesday night.

A clerk told The Post Johnson has several out-of-state warrants and was likely to be held without bail.

Good Morning America attracts dozens of tourists and fans seeking to catch a glimpse of the program broadcast live from Times Square on weekday mornings. 

Strahan played defensive end for the New York Giants for 15 years until 2008 and will be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame next month.

This isn't the same Andre Johnson the Wutang associate that cut off his penis I hope. They really need to keep this guy away from knives.
