The Green Bay Packers have a better offense when Jermichael Finley is on the field. It's too soon to say if he'll be available for their Week 2 matchup against the Washington Redskins.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that Finley traveled to Minnesota this week to receive treatment on his injured toe. A source close to the tight end said Finley was hurt early in Sunday's season opener when San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis stepped on the back of his leg.
Finley is expected to rest the injury this week. The hope is that he'll play Sunday.
Traveling during the season for treatment isn't usually a good sign, because it means normal rest wasn't going to be enough to get Finley ready for Week 2. We'll continue to monitor his practice activity, but we're now less certain that he'll be available for a nice matchup against the Redskins. If Finley is out, expect James Jones to see far more targets than the two he saw against the 49ers.
