Report: Jermichael Finley spends night in ICU but should be 'fine'

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

After taking a hit to the head from Browns safety Tashaun Gipson, Packers tight end Jermichael Finley couldn't move at first. Although the Packers reported later that Finley had movement and feeling in his extremities, he spent the night in the ICU with his neck injury, according to ESPN.

ESPN writes that Finley hadn't undergone surgery as of Monday morning and his status is uncertain. But a source told that Finley's hospital stay is precautionary and that "he's going to be fine."

Still, it was a scary scenario when tight end Andrew Quarless approached Finley after the play.

"He couldn't move at the time," Quarless said, via ESPN. "So I just told him, just stay here, just lay here, don't move ...

"That look he had in his eyes, that was something that stuck with me. It really hurt me just to see him like that. My brother was out there on the ground."

This is Finley's second major injury of the season. He also sustained a concussion in Week 3 vs. the Bengals.

And more and more we're beginning to understand why Finley's son might not want him to play football anymore.
