Packers RB Franklin Might Have a Career-Threatening Neck Injury

Second year Packers Running Back Johnathan Franklin might have a career-threatening neck injury,'s Rob Demovsky reports.

Franklin, who was placed on Injured Reserve last September after suffering a concussion, hasn't practiced yet this offseason, as the team is apparently putting him through medical tests to see if him continuing to play football is safe.

In 2013, the ex-UCLA star recorded just 107 rushing yards, with all but four of them coming in Week 3's loss to the Bengals.

In that contest, Franklin also got a season-high 13 carries, as opposed to just six the rest of the year.

Franklin has now announced on Twitter that his NFL career is over. This came out of left field. While they do have depth and running back won't be a concern, he showed glimpses (especially in that game against the Bengals) of becoming a useful weapon.
