Free Agent TE Jermichael Finley will meet with Packers team doctors today regarding the current state of his neck injury, ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky reports.
Lately, Finley has sent out multiple tweets about his rehab, possibly the reason for this happening.
Still, according to Demovsky, nothing about this implies that the veteran is close to getting a contract, much less being cleared to play.
Finley, who has spent each of his six NFL seasons with the Packers, suffered the severe injury Week 7 of last year, a game Green Bay won over the Browns, 31-13.
Since then, #88 has come and gone out of the public's eye, reaching an agreement on a one-year deal with the Seahawks earlier this offseason.
However, that contract quickly fell apart after Finley failed his physical, causing him to wait for this moment now, his chance to show the Packers how his health has improved.
Overall, the odds of this meeting turning out positive for both sides seem unlikely, although, in my opinion, it's still definitely something worth our attention.
Yes, the injury is serious, but that doesn't mean that Finley recovering from it's impossible. Sooner or later, I'd imagine he'll be back on the field, with or without medical clearance from today.
