At last update, Packers Tight End Jermichael Finley remains hospitalized following his injuries suffered in Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns, but multiple reports say he could be released by Thursday.
Finley’s teammates have been busy visiting him in the hospital. Aaron Rodgers said he’s gone to see Finley multiple times including yesterday. Rodgers said Finley appears to be getting better. “He looked like himself, and he was moving around good,” Rodgers said. “I was encouraged by his spirits yesterday and look forward to seeing him back in the locker room at some point.”
Andrew Quarless, will replace Finley at tight end this weekend against Minnesota. Quarless said he’s also gone to visit his injured teammate, which helped him deal with seeing such a traumatic injury to his teammate on the field.
“I was a little hurt, like I said before to see my brother on the ground, couldn't do nothing for him, that's how I looked at it, but I visited him in the hospital, he was moving around, we had a nice little talk, so I felt better coming out the next day,” Quarless told reporters.
Mike McCarthy said he’s taken trips to the hospital to check on Finley. McCarthy also has the unenviable task of creating a gameplan to replace Finley’s on field production.
“You don't replace him, based on the way he was utilized and the production he gives an offense,” McCarthy said. “Andrew (Quarless) and (Brandon) Bostick will both have to step up and play a role, that's the way we're going about it. “
