Packers | Jermichael Finley may need surgery

A highly regarded spinal surgeon said that Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley (neck) is unlikely to return without having spinal surgery. Wellington Hsu, an endowed professor at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and practicing surgeon with offices in Chicago, said that in most cases when a football player suffers spinal cord bruising it is a sign there is something amiss in the spinal canal that must be corrected. "If everything is normal there should be enough space in the spinal canal to absorb the force of that hit," Hsu said. "If there isn't enough space, then the spinal canal doesn't take the jolt very well."
