GREEN BAY, Wis. -- There was some sense of relief from Green Bay Packers coaches and players when they arrived at Lambeau Field on Monday and found out that tight end Jermichael Finley was moving around his hospital room. Less than 24 hours earlier, Finley was motionless in the middle of the field and needed to be carted away on a stretcher after suffering a neck injury.
While any improvement from Finley was welcomed news for the team, there are still several questions about his medical condition that could take a lot of time to answer.
"Jermichael Finley suffered a significant injury," coach Mike McCarthy said Monday. "He spent the evening in the hospital. As far as the injury, the specifics of it, there's a lot more studies that are going on, opinions to be heard. So, anything as far as a timeline would be premature to give, to really comment on that today. He's up and performing daily activities, and he's in good spirits."
According to ESPN, Finley has a bruised spinal cord.
