A pair of recent tweets from free-agent tight end Jermichael Finley created the impression that he’s closer to a return.
“Awesome news!” he said, followed up “#IWillRiseAgain.”
He then tempered that with this: “Minor SetBack 4 A Major #Comeback.”
According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, the tweets don’t mean much. As Demovsky explains it, “There has been no change in either his medical clearance or his contractual status with the Packers.”
Finley underwent neck surgery last season. In late January, Finley told PFT Live that he expected to be cleared soon. It hasn’t happened yet; hopefully, it will in time for him to play in 2014.
