Jermichael Finley has bruised spinal cord in neck

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel - [Full Article]

The future of Packers TE Jermichael Finley on the football field remains unknown. There were no timetables set Monday. Timetables took a backseat.

But a source did confirm that the Green Bay Packers tight end suffered a bruised spinal cord in his neck against the Cleveland Browns. He is expected to seek more medical opinions on the injury and take his time through the evaluation process.

Fantasy Impact: 

The story pointed out that some players have never played again after suffering this injury. Finley's injury doesn't seem to be career threatening. In terms of fantasy, the Pack will need their three healthy tight ends — Andrew Quarless, Brandon Bostick and Jake Stoneburner — to excel in specific roles and the offensive line to dominate. There will likely be more 100-yard rushing days with Eddie Lacy than 400-yard passing days from Aaron Rodgers - at least for now. There are reports that Finley could be placed on IR this week.
