Jermichael Finley returns to Packers facility Friday

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 25, 2013 – 3:14 pm

Packers TE Jermichael Finley, who was released from the hospital on Thursday, made an appearance at the team facility on Friday to visit with coaches and teammates.

“He looks good,” Head Coach Mike McCarthy said. “He looked like a dang movie star walking in here with sunglasses. It was good to see him. Big smile on his face. It’s great to have him back in the building.”

McCarthy added that more medical tests are being done on Finley’s injured neck, with information being sent to various specialists. Once that process is complete, “we’ll have to make a decision, or set a timeline,” McCarthy said.

“I know he’s glad to be out of the hospital. Just him walking in here today is what everybody needed to see.”

    Great to hear Jermichael is on the mend. As much as we love to win football games around this great state, football seems so insignificant when players lie motionless on the field. We’re pulling for Jermichael’s FULL recovery not for footballs sake , but, for him to live a fulfilling life for the rest of his life. Keep the prayers coming packer nation.

    Scary to see you go down like that Jermichael.. I’m glad it wasn’t as serious as it looked. I loved seeing you making the most of your targets this year. *We’re hoping to see you in a Packer uniform for many years to come!* Here’s hoping you will heal back to 100% no matter what your status for the rest of the season. Looking forward to seeing BigFin back in action. Rest well..

    To play or not to play. That will be the question. Football is a “contact sport” . Yes the NFL is the pinnacle of football, and yes there is allot of money that they EARN . The risk are jinormous, So let him take his time and decide what to do next. There are more important things than football.

    JMF, I think all have been proud of your play and maturity this year. 1st prayers were answered; you are up and walking, 2nd prayer; you get the opportunity to play more FB.

    The fact that Jermichael Finley walked into the Packers facility transcends football.

    This is a great sport and we all want to win, especially the players and coaches, but nothing outweighs a man’s life and family.

    Way to go, JF!! Many prayers answered.

    Go Pack!

    Hey, I too am glad to see you’re up and about. But it’s more important that you heal completely without any medical issues, no matter how long it takes. I know everyone wants you back on the field ASAP, don’t rush it. Your long term health matters more than playing!

    I don’t usually post anything on any website, but JMF I think you are an amazing player and I’m very glad to see that your up and about. I’ve been a lifelong Packer Fan and you are right up there with the best of them. I would love to see you play again, but your longevity, health, and family come first and I’m glad that you know that. You do what you need to do, whether you play or not in the future. Just remember that whatever you decide to do, the Packers Nation will always be behind you 110 percent. God speed JMF.

    J-Mike, so glad to see you get back to Lambeau. Again, you did something to be part of the team. You lifted everyone’s spirits, as well as yours, I’m sure.

    The football fanatic and lifelong Packer fan, I want you to be able to return as soon as possible. But as a human being, I want you to do what is right for you and your family, and your future. You still have your whole life ahead of you. May God completely heal you, whether you play football again or not.

    This transcends football, alright. Ya’ll saying he will be back are taking crazy pills. The guy was temporarily paralyzed. Completely conscious and unable to move, or even control his breathing. Take the 10M and walk away. Next time he had whatever happens coming, but hopefully he’s not that stupid.

    On an entirely different note, I do believe I’ve graduated to full Packer fan. Last night, when Rodgers went down, I spent the rest of the game on my living room floor curled up in the fetal position. It seemed as though life had lost almost all meaning.
