Packers' Finley progressing, seeks more opinions


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Packers coach Mike McCarthy says injured tight end Jermichael Finley is making progress in recuperating from a serious neck injury but is seeking more opinions from specialists.

Finley remained in a hospital Wednesday after getting hurt in last week's 31-13 win over the Browns.

Finley posted Tuesday night on Twitter a brief video of him walking down a hospital hall accompanied by three others. His neck appeared to be in a brace.

He was officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, along with linebacker Clay Matthews (thumb).

Among other injured Packers, running back James Starks (knee), along with cornerback Casey Hayward and linebacker Brad Jones, each with hamstring injuries, were full practice participants Wednesday.

Receiver James Jones (knee) did not practice, but says he's feeling better each day.
