Johnathan Franklin is done as a Green Bay Packer

Green Bay Packers running back Johnathan Franklin’s NFL career is over after a neck injury he suffered last November.

Coach Mike McCarthy made the announcement after Thursday’s final minicamp practice, saying he had “unfortunate news” about Franklin, who joined the team as a fourth-round pick out of UCLA last year and was injured on a kickoff return against Minnesota on Nov. 24.

“All the information has come in, we’ve had a chance to sit down and talk to Johnathan the last couple days. He will not be back with us,” McCarthy said. “I can’t say enough about him as a person. He’s as classy of a young man that’s walked through these doors.”

This is sad news for Franklin, I think he made the right decision.
