Packers tight end Jermichael Finley suffered a serious neck injury during the 2013 season. His season ended with surgery -- and inevitable questions regarding whether he’ll play again.
Finley consistently has said he’ll indeed play again. Moments ago at Radio Row, Finley told PFT that his doctor expects to give Finley clearance for contact within the next three or four weeks. Finley pegged his doctor’s confidence at 99.9 percent.
The looming free agent already is cleared to run routes and catch passes, and if he’s cleared for contact in the next month he could become a hot commodity in free agency.
We’ll be posting the full video soon, during which Finley said plenty of other interesting things. None more interesting than the fact that he’ll soon be cleared to return to the NFL.
