Jermichael Finley fails physical with Seahawks

Packers News - [Full Article]

An NFL source said the Seattle Seahawks failed tight end Jermichael Finley on his physical during his recent visit to the team.

Finley is barely more than four months removed from neck surgery performed Nov. 14 to fuse his C-3/C-4 vertebrae. He made a free-agent visit to the Seahawks during the first week of free agency so the team’s medical staff could assess his recovery.

The source didn’t know whether the Seahawks will bring Finley back for a re-check. Though Finley has said he expected his surgeon to proclaim the bone in the neck fusion healed this month, that doesn’t mean NFL teams will clear him to play football, at least for now.

Fantasy Impact: 

Time will tell if Finley will be cleared to play in time for the 2014 season. He's not expected to be cleared for another month or two at least.
