Packers may lose tight end Jermichael Finley for season

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley may be done for the season, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Finley, who has 21 catches for 301 yards and one touchdown, was projected as a potential breakout player this season after scoring five touchdowns last season.

Finley was originally expected to miss about three weeks but the Journal-Sentinel reported there was more damage to his knee than initially thought. It's now expected he'll be sidelined eight to 10 weeks.

Finley was arguably the toughest match up for opposing defenses because of his size and speed.

A third-round pick in 2008, Finley caught 55 passes 676 yards last season.

If the Packers do not place him on the injured reserve, the Bears may well face him; the two teams will play in the season finale on Jan. 2 at Lambeau Field.

The Bears won the first game at Soldier Field Sept. 27, 20-17.
