Report: Jermichael Finley spent night in ICU after head injury


Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley suffered his second major head injury in a month in a half on Sunday, when he took a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit from Cleveland Browns safety Tashaun Gipson and there are conflicting reports about the severity of his injury.

Some reports say that the decision to keep Finley in the hospital overnight was because of precautionary reasons, while ESPN is reporting that Finley spent the night in the ICU unit.

From the ESPN report:

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is in the intensive care unit at a hospital Monday after suffering a neck injury during Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns, league sources told ESPN Senior NFL Insider Chris Mortensen.

Finley has not undergone surgery as of Monday morning and his status is uncertain, one source said.

We should learn more about the full extent of his injury once we get more information from the team following his release, so stay tuned.

The one thing that remains in the back of our head is what Finley’s child said a few weeks ago when he said he wanted him to stop playing football.

We would like to wish Finley the best.
