After sustaining a spinal contusion in his neck area and being placed in intensive care, Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley have been released from the hosptial and is back home.
Finley was injured in Sunday’s 31-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns when Browns safety Tashaun Gipson hit him in the head.
Several of Finley’s Packer teammates visited Finley in the hospital and most of them talked about Finley’s desire to get back on the field.
Although that probably won’t happen this season, his teammates certainly believe in him.
“One of his biggest things was, ‘I’m going to get back,’” fellow tight end Andrew Quarless told ESPN.com. “That’s in any of us. Anytime any guys go down, I mean, this is what we love to do, so that’s the first thing [Finley asked]. ‘When am I going to get back? What’s the timetable?’ and stuff like that. So that’s a little bit of what they talked about.”
On the season, Finley has 25 receptions for 300 yards and three touchdowns.
Quarless has four receptions for 28 yards.
The Packers will be in Minnesota to take on the Vikings Sunday night at 8:30 pm EST.
Home Sweet Home! #FinleyStrong
