Packers | Jermichael Finley still in hospital

Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley (spine) remains in the hospital but continues to improve from the bruised spine he suffered in Week 7. Finley continues to seek opinions from other specialists on his condition. Putting him on season-ending Injured Reserve seems to be a real option for the club at this juncture. "We're going to wait until everything comes in," McCarthy said about Finley and his test results. "We'll do our due diligence and, obviously, not be premature on anything. We'll do what's in the best interest of Jermichael." Finley has already been ruled out for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: We wouldn't blame you if you outright dropped Finley for another tight end option this week. The uncertainty surrounding his condition doesn't speak well for a possible return this season, and the four- to six-week timetable is probably being generous.
