Yesterday we did get good news that Jermichael Finley was able to walk to and from the shower according to his own Twitter feed but we were still uncertain just what the injury was. Now from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, we have learned he suffered a bruised spinal cord:
But a source did confirm that the Green Bay Packers tight end suffered a bruised spinal cord in his neck against the Cleveland Browns. He is expected to seek more medical opinions on the injury and take his time through the evaluation process.
At this point I think all focus should be on Finley’s life outside of and beyond football. I know players are tough but whenever you hear bruised spinal cord, it might be time to hand up the cleats.
