Packers’ Finley To Be Released From Hospital On Thursday

Packers_Jermichael_Finley_2013Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley expects to be released from an area hospital Thursday morning, league sources told ESPN’s Ed Werder.

Finley has been hospitalized, originally in intensive care, since Sunday. He suffered a spinal contusion in his neck area, causing temporary numbness in his extremities, after a hit he sustained during the Packers’ 31-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns. He has been sharing images from his MRIs, CT scans and other tests with other neurosurgeons and spinal injury specialists and might visit other doctors upon being released.

A steady flow of visitors, including several teammates, have seen Finley at the hospital. Fellow Packers tight end Andrew Quarless, who visited Finley on Sunday night, said one of the first things Finley asked the doctor was when he could return to the field.
