Jermichael Finley expects to get tests
Free agent tight end Jermichael Finley told ESPN's Josina Anderson he's expecting to get an X-ray on his neck Thursday and an MRI within two weeks.
Finley said his scans will then be reviewed by Dr. Joseph Maroon, the Pittsburgh Steelers team neurosurgeon who performed Finley's spinal fusion surgery last year.
If the results are positive, Finley hopes to share them with interested teams.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said at the NFC coaches breakfast during the owners meetings on March 26 that Green Bay is interested in bringing back Finley.
"Absolutely," McCarthy said. "Jermichael, he's going through a medical situation. He had a serious injury, I mean there's a lot of excitement, based on what I'm told. I haven't seen him work out or anything like that, but I guess his workouts have gone very well.
"He's in great shape, I know he feels good, but the reality is this injury is going to take some time and we'll continue to watch it."
