Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley has been told by doctors that he should be released from the hospital within the next 24 hours, reports ESPN. According to ESPN sources, Finley will likely miss at least four to six weeks. He will not require surgery and all current indications are that he will be able to resume his NFL career.

It appears a Green Bay Packers offense missing several proven playmakers soon could have wide receiver James Jones back in the fold.
Whether that’s in time for Sunday’s game in Minnesota is uncertain but Packers coach Mike McCarthy said during his Monday news conference he’s hopeful the 29-year-old receiver will be back in the coming weeks.

The Green Bay Packers have listed cornerback Casey Hayward and wide receiver James Jones as questionable for Sunday’s matchup with the Browns.
Jones suffered a leg injury last week that could end up keeping him out this week, but it looks like right now that he has a 50-50 chance of playing.
Below is the rest of the Packers injury report from Packers.com.
Week 7 Injury Report James Jones – Questionable: For a team that loves a three-wideout package, the Packers suddenly likely find themselves down two. It’s hard to imagine that Jones is out there on Sunday, and Cobb is done until very late in the year at best. Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin are likely to see a sharp uptick in targets against the Browns. Cecil Shorts and Justin...
Neither rain nor injuries could stop Aaron Rodgers from throwing three touchdown passes en route to a 31-13 Green Bay victory over Cleveland."Hang with us fans, it might not be the prettiest game," Rodgers said. "But we've got to kind of win with defense, not turn the ball over and make the plays that are there." Hanging with the team is never in question...

Calvin Johnson appears to be on the mend, while the Packers, Jaguars and Patriots are dealing with injuries among their wide receiving corps. Which...
So many injuries, so many unfamiliar names playing for the Packers.
However, Green Bay always has a chance with Aaron Rodgers calling the shots.
Rodgers threw for 260 yards and three touchdowns, Eddie Lacy ran for another score, and the defense came up clutch in a 31-13 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Green Bay Packers legend Brett Favre and heir to the throne Aaron Rodgers may have a fairly awkward relationship, but Favre is a retiree now. He no longer plays football on Sundays, unless he’s slinging the pigskin with some buddies in his Wrangler jeans. Instead, Favre plays fantasy football like the rest of us. And you’ll […]
The play of the game, the player of the game, a look into the crystal ball and 14 incredible numbers that explain how the short-handed Packers knocked off the Browns. One play, overlooked by everyone other than perhaps Aaron Rodgers, goes a long way toward explaining Sunday's outcome.
Forget for a second that Brett Favre has the quarterback who was responsible for his exodus from Green Bay on his fantasy team. I think the really shocking fact here is that a man’s man like Favre plays fantasy football at all.
Brett Favre just told me he has Aaron Rodgers on his fantasy team. @JeffDarlington @RapSheet
