Former Packers tight end Mark Chmura made an appearance on 540 ESPN Milwaukee and stated that Jermichael Finley told him that he needs to undergo neck surgery and his career is over.
“I will give you a little snibbet,” Chmura said via ProFootballTalk.com. “I got a chance to talk to Jermichael Finley before the game, and I would bet my bottom dollar his career’s over. Over. He needs surgery, and it’s herniated in [the C3 and C4 vertebrae]. . . . I think it’s gonna be a Nick Collins deal. He’s definitely not gonna play in Green Bay, I’d put my house on that.”
Chmura added, “I believe he’s undergoing surgery on Thursday. . . . He literally could not move his neck.”
If Finley does in fact retire, I’m sure his family will be happy since his kids have been asking him to move on from football.
