Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley left the game today with a neck injury. He took a blow to the head from a Cleveland Browns defender and had to be taken off of the field on a stretcher. He does have movement in his extremities, but those neck injuries can knock a player out for a long time.

Here is the hit that Finley took on the play:

The Packers already were thin of pass catchers with Randall Cobb going down. He is expected to be out for a while and now it looks like Finleyu could miss some time with the neck injury.

With Finley out of the game, Andrew Quarless is the next man up listed on the Packers depth chart.

At least Aaron Rodgers is still throwing the ball over to the field for them on offense. He can find his guys on the field and will make the offense look good.

We will keep an eye on his status and we will learn more during the week.
