Jermichael Finley injury update: sits out practice Wednesday, expected to start for fantasy owners Sunday

Finley has been dealing with a toe injury since the start of the season but is still expected to play for the Packers in Week 3. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley (toe) missed practice on Wednesday, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports. He's still expected to play in the Packers' Week 3 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

While battling the nagging injury against the Washington Redskins in Week 2, Finley caught six passes for 65 yards and his second touchdown of the season.

Fantasy impact: Finley had somewhat of a down year last year and at times complained that quarterback Aaron Rodgers wasn't looking for him enough in the passing game. He seemed to have slipped behind Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings, James Jones and Randall Cobb on the depth chart. The good news is Finley's been targeted a solid 15 times by Rodgers in the Packers' first two games this year and his output of 121 yards and two touchdowns is noteworthy fantasy wise. He may never produce as much as the Jimmy Graham's or Rob Gronkowski's of the world with so many talented receivers in Green Bay, but he should definitely be in your lineup in Week 3, barring any last minute setbacks.
