As one of the first players on the scene Andrew Quarless tried to help Jermichael Finley up.
The Packers tight end took a violent shot from Cleveland's Tashaun Gipson on a 10-yard reception.
"And he told me he couldn’t move" Quarless said "so I said ‘Just stay there.’ It was tough.”
Finely could talk but he couldn't move. Eventually he was taken...
The Green Bay Packers won the game against the Cleveland Browns Sunday, but they may have been hit with a pretty big loss--tight end Jermichael Finley. He was having a solid day with five catches for 72 yards and a touchdown when a scary hit caused him to go down. After what seemed like an eternity he was carted off the field and taken to the hospital.
His injury was severe...

When the most dynamic player on the Browns is tight Jordan Cameron, Cleveland is at a severe disadvantage. The Brownies have been good causing turnovers with five picks and four fumbles, but they also turn the ball over with nine giveaways as well. It’s not all rosy for the Packers as Mike McCarthy may not be able to dress the gameday maximum of...
