Jermichael Finley should be cleared for contact in 4-8 weeks

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel - [Full Article]

Joseph Maroon, the neurosurgeon who performed surgery on the Jermichael Finley's bruised spine, informed the Packers that there’s a “99.9%” chance the fusion will fully heal. At that point, agent Blake Baratz said this week, Maroon would clear Finley for “full football activity.”

“In some players, it takes four weeks while in others in can six months or longer,” Baratz said. “In Jermichael's case because of how he has developed and (how) his initial X-Ray looked, Dr. Maroon believes sometime in the next 4-8 weeks his should fully heal.”

“Jermichael would love to play his entire career in Green Bay. However, he also understands that this is a business and you can only control what you can control. Hopefully everything works out between the Packers and Jermichael but none of us have a crystal ball.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Finley's fantasy value would be highest if he returned to the Packers, but that seems unlikely at this point.
