Finley was injured in Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns. He lay on the field for several minutes before being carried off on a stretcher.
Finley gave some information on his Twitter account Monday night, expressing gratitude to all those concerned.
"I want to thank my family, friends, teammates, fans and Packer Nation for the prayers and support over the past 24 hrs," wrote Finley on Twitter. "I'm happy to report that I have been transferred out of the intensive care unit and that I have full feeling in my arms and legs. As importantly, I was able 2 walk to & from the shower today, which was badly needed after yesterday's victory! Thank u again 4 the support, and Go Packers!"
Multiple reports have said Finley suffered a bruised spinal cord, and is seeking multiple opinions before deciding on treatment options. The Packers would not put a timetable on his return until they have exhausted all diagnostic possibilities and settled on a treatment. Ed Werder of ESPN reports Finley could be out of the hospital within 24 hours, and his injury is not the result of a spinal compression, but a bruise from torquing. Werder reports doctors have said when the bruise heals he would be no more at risk than any other player for a re-injury to his neck.
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Finley has a large and loving support system and is comfortable, having suffered a "significant" neck injury that will take some time to evaluate.
