With a Week Four bye Packers tight end Jermichael Finley won’t have to worry about whether he’ll be cleared to play only seven days after suffering a concussion.
If Finley’s five-year-old son had his way Finley never would be cleared.
“‘Daddy I don’t want you to play football anymore’” Finley’s son told his father by phone after Finley left the Week Three game in Cincinnati with a concussion.
Finley described his son’s reaction and the incident on a video posted through Finley’s website.
“Aaron Rodgers threw the ball I dove” Finley said. “And after that I felt the hit at my shoulder. After all that happened I was unconscious by then.”
Finley was hit in the head by Bengals safety George Iloka who was fined $15000 for making contact to the head/neck area of a defenseless player.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Green Bay Packers would be an intriguing trade option for Josh Freeman.

In 2009, Johnny Jolly's last full year in Green Bay, the Packers had the league's best run defense, giving up 83.3 yards a game. The run defense is much better this season after missing Jolly the past three seasons.
Remember when the NFL schedule was first announced for this season and we all learned that the Packers had their bye in Week 4 of the season? Good grief! That was waaaaay too early. Or so we thought.After being beset with injuries of various sorts -- concussions, hamstrings and who knows what else -- the Packers are a physically wounded team very early in the season. Many fans whom...
