More tests for Packers’ Finley after neck injury
GREEN BAY, WIS. (AP) - Packers tight end Jermichael Finley suffered a significant neck injury in the win over the Browns and needs more tests to determine the severity.
“Jermichael Finley suffered a significant injury,” McCarthy said at Lambeau Field. “As far as the injury, the specifics of it … there (are) a lot of, more studies that are going on, opinions to be heard.”
Finley was taken to a hospital after being carted off the field in the fourth quarter following the hit on a 10-yard catch during the 31-13 victory by Cleveland safety Tashaun Gipson, who was whistled for unnecessary roughness.
McCarthy said he had reviewed the film and that he “didn’t think it was a dirty play.”
As hard as it may be after such a scary sight, the Packers (4-2) will look forward. They’re back atop the NFC North after winning three straight and head to Minnesota next week for a Sunday night game.
Green Bay is getting used to losing players. Among other key Packers out for the Browns game were linebackers Clay Matthews (thumb), Nick Perry (foot) and Brad Jones (hamstring); and receivers Randall Cobb (leg) and James Jones (knee).
There’s at least some good news on James Jones, who got hurt two weeks ago in the 19-17 win over the Ravens.
Initially thought to be sidelined about two or three weeks, McCarthy left open the possibility that the receiver could practice this week. He hopes to know more Wednesday.
“James is not your normal guy. He’s genetically gifted, so we’ll see what happen,” McCarthy said.
As of now, it’s just Jordy Nelson left standing from the standout quartet of options for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
