Packers | Jermichael Finley out at least 4-6 weeks
Tue, 22 Oct 2013 11:51:25 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley (spine) is expected to be released from the hospital within the next 24 hours and he'll likely miss at least four to six weeks, according to sources. Finley isn't likely to need surgery, and he should be able to resume his career. He could visit with more neurosurgeons and specialists regarding his spine injury. Doctors think his injury was caused by extreme torque and not by spinal compression. There is still a possibility that the Packers place Finley on season-ending Injured Reserve if they don't want to risk bringing him back this season.

With an injury this severe, there are no guarantees that Finley will return at all this season. If you need the roster space to add tight end depth, you may need to cut bait on Finley. Andrew Quarless will step up in Finley's place and could be a decent backup option in this offense.
