Jermichael Finley says he will return, but doesn’t know when

When Peter King asked Jermichael Finley if he would return to the NFL and the Green Bay Packers, his response was moving:

“Of course I plan to play football again,” Finley wrote on “This is what I love to do. I love the game. I love Sundays. Based on the feedback I’ve received from doctors at this point, the question is not if I’ll play again, but when.”

Finley compared the injury to a bad car accident that shocked his spine. He’s still improving by the day. In fact, his motor skills, coordination and balance are all back to normal.

“I was very conscious, but I could not move,” Finley wrote poignantly. “I looked at my teammate Andrew Quarless directly in the eye and whispered, ‘Help me, Q. I can’t move. I can’t breathe.’ The scariest moment was seeing the fear in Q’s eyes. I knew something was wrong, but his reaction verified it. That really shook me up.”

That is a pretty scary situation, and I personally went through one extremely similar.  When I broke my back I thought my world was over.  I could not feel anything so I know the feeling well.  Keep your head up though big man, GOD BLESS
