Packers tight end Jermichael Finley was off to a great start in the first four games of 2010 before suffering a season-ending knee injury in the fifth. Now Finley says he’s ready to play just as well as he did nine months ago.
Finley posted a message on Twitter this morning noting that he’s been working out, pushing himself, and feeling as good as ever on his surgically repaired knee.
“I just thought to myself that its May & this knee feels brand new already,” Finley said. “This what my Pack Fans been waiting 4 huh.”
Seeing Finley catch 80 passes for 1,200 yards — what he was on pace for through four games — is certainly what Packers fans have been waiting for. The question is whether Finley can stay healthy for long enough that the Packers buy into him as a wise long-term investment.
