Report: No Change in Finley's Medical Status Despite Recent Tweets

On Thursday, Free Agent TE Jermichael Finley sent out a very convincing tweet.

The injured veteran, still without a team as training camp nears, has yet to be cleared to play this offseason, yet is still constantly in the news. 

This tweet didn't change that.

"Awesome News!" Finley wrote. "#IWillRiseAgain."

It wasn't long or detailed by any means, but it was definitely something to see.

Howevever, according to's Rob Demovsky, the message doesn't mean anything, as Finley's medical status has apparently not changed.

"I can tell you that after talking to several people about the matter after those tweets, that there has been no change in either his medical clearance or his contractual status with the Packers," Demovsky stated. "Until the former changes, meaning the Packers' doctors give him the OK to return to the field, nothing will happen with the latter."

Finley, who has played for Green Bay for the last six seasons, has been the center of these kind of rumors since suffering his neck injury back in Week 7, with this just being the latest. In other words, most if not all of these positive reports aren't true, something #88's doctors seem to agree on.
