Packers TE Jermichael Finley is practicing


Green Bay Packers Jermichael Finley has returned to practice. This is becoming a trent, Finley sitting out practice on Wednesday and then resuming practice on Thursday and Friday.

From ESPN Wisconsin:

Finley has been bothered by a toe injury since last week. He took last Wednesday off, too, then practiced Thursday and Friday before playing on Sunday.

Keeping Finley healthy is clearly a priority for the Packers. So far this season he has caught 11 passes for 121 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also has got 5 first downs. His receiving yards number being fairly low for two games could be a result of the toe injury that is limiting him. By withholding him from practice they could try to let it heal with an extra day of rest.
