Jermichael Finley speaks about his injury, recovery

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 29, 2013 – 1:32 pm

Packers TE Jermichael Finley wrote a first-person piece for The MMQB website, discussing his injury and ongoing recovery.

Here are a couple of excerpts of his comments.

After the hit: “It all happened very quickly. I remember seeing the defender out of the corner of my eye, and I intentionally lowered my head and shoulders to protect my knees. After I got hit, in the fourth quarter of our win against the Browns last week, my eyes were wide open. I was very conscious, but I could not move. I looked my teammate Andrew Quarless directly in the eye and whispered, ‘Help me Q. I can’t move; I can’t breathe.’ The scariest moment was seeing the fear in Q’s eyes. I knew something was wrong, but his reaction verified it. That really shook me up.”

Finley says he plans to play football again, but he doesn’t know when.

“Based on the feedback I’ve received from doctors at this point, the question is not if I’ll play again, but when. There is no better feeling in the world than making the ‘Lambeau Leap’ into the stands, and I fully intend on having that surreal feeling again soon. I will do everything in my power to rehab and get back to the player I have been, and improve into the player I know I can be.”
