MILWAUKEE — According to an ESPN report, doctors have told Packers tight end Jermichael Finley that he should be able to return to pro football-if he so chooses.
Finley, who was scheduled to leave the hospital at any time, was also told that once the bruised spinal cord in his neck heals, he should be at no more risk for spinal injury than any other player.
Jermichael Finley is expected to seek further medical opinions. Expect both the team and the 26 year-old Finley to proceed with caution.
Football has become secondary to his health.
