Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley was seen throwing punches at the helmet of teammate Jarvis Reed during a recent practice, which is never a good idea given how little give helmets tend to have against the human hand.
Finely never connected and avoided injury, which means that a productive training camp won’t be interrupted. Finley is drawing raves from teammates and coaches for his improvement as a run blocker after struggling in recent years and he’s also hearing some nice words from the guy who will be throwing him passes this season.
“He’s been running his routes really well,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers said, via Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “Something clicked last year midseason … and it’s carried over this spring. He’s got himself in unbelievable shape, and he’s come in and been dominating out there. I’m really proud of him and the steps he’s made.”
