Jermichael Finley to have spinal fusion surgery
Wednesday, November 13, 2013, 5:10pm
"We have collectively determined that while surgery may not be 100% necessary, it is a proactive measure that should alleviate future risks with regards to a similar episode or re-injury. Jermichael has elected to undergo a spinal fusion with Dr. Joseph Maroon, the Pittsburgh Steelers team Neurosurgeon. Dr. Maroon is experienced in conducting this type of procedure on professional athletes in contact sports, and is confident that Jermichael will fully recover following the procedure. Once surgery has been completed, Jermichael has every intention of resuming his football career, and we fully support his efforts to do so."
Finley's career is certainly in jeopardy, though if surgery is successful, it sounds as if he could return to the league.

It appears that Davis is on track to play in Week 11.
