Packers TE Jermichael Finley out indefinitely with bruised spinal cord

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley @JermichaelF88 suffered a bruised spinal cord during Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. There is no timetable for his return and he is likely out for the remainder of the season. Some players who sustained similar injuries never played football again. Finley will require more tests and more doctor visits before more is known. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy described this injury as "significant."

Fantasy Analysis:

This definitely looks like the end of Finley's season and there are career-ending implications. Fantasy owners should absolutely begin looking immediately for replacements. The Packers will fall back on Andrew Quarless, who only has four receptions for 28 yards this year. Green Bay is already paper-thin at receiver, after having lost Randall Cobb @rcobb18 to injured reserve and James Jones looking questionable for Week 8. This injury only puts more pressure on younger players like Jarrett Boykin @BoyKinHeCatch.
