Finley going on IR

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 18, 2010 – 11:54 am

Head Coach Mike McCarthy said during his Monday press conference that TE Jermichael Finley would be going on injured reserve, ending his season.

He also said that LB Brady Poppinga, who sustained a knee injury in Sunday’s game, would have arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday, which presumably means he’ll be out at least a couple of weeks or more. Also, WR Donald Driver (quad) and LB A.J. Hawk (groin) sustained injuries in the game, but McCarthy only said they would probably miss some practice time.

He was non-committal on the potential return of LB Clay Matthews (hamstring) and DE Ryan Pickett (ankle) from injuries this week, saying he would know more later in the week. Also, he said T Mark Tauscher (shoulder) would be out at least a couple of more weeks yet, but that he is getting better.

A full transcript of McCarthy’s comments will be posted shortly.
