Per a report from @jrehor, Jermichael Finley is going to have a cervical fusion at C3/4. Bit higher than Manning's, but identical surgery.That C3/4 area is also the same area where Collins had surgery. Mark Chmura says that Finley cannot move his neck. As much as he might want to resume his career, the Packers might not take the chance on him.

Jermichael Finley Is Having Surgery And It Might End His Career
Ever since he was taken off the field on a stretcher, I've been expecting that TE Jermichael Finley will never play another game for the Green Bay Packers. I've seen too many neck injuries end careers like those of S Tim Lewis, WR Sterling Sharpe, TE Mark Chmura, S Gary Berry, WR Terrance Murphy, OL Tony Palmer, S Nick Collins, and maybe S Sean Richardson.
