Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy said on Tuesday that the decision to place TE Jermichael Finley on injured reserve “was not about football.”
“It was a medical decision made for Jermichael’s best interests as a man, a father and a husband,” McCarthy said of Finley’s neck injury. “We were not going to take that chance.
“Based on the medical report I was given, everyone agreed he should not play football this year.”
McCarthy added that Finley’s football future had not yet been determined.
“As we know Jermichael, he’ll be ready to play tomorrow in his mindset,” McCarthy said. “But this is definitely the right thing to do by him.”
