Jermichael Finley getting checked by neurologist, fantasy day is done

Matthew Stockman

Jermichael Finley is getting his head checked out and his day is done. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jermichael Finley left Sunday's game in the first quarter with an apparent head injury. He was taken to the locker room and will be examined by a team neurologist for a head injury, according to FOX Sports' broadcast. He will not return.

He took a helmet-to-helmet hit in the secondary on a seam route. As Finley got up, he looked very woozy and could only make it a handful of steps before going to the ground. The medical team went out to examine him on the field before he went to the sidelines under his own power.

Fantasy impact: He's likely done for the day with this news. The Packers have a litany of weapons and Andrew Quarless should see more of the snaps for tight ends. Although, the Packers are already down two scores and will likely use more three- and four-wide sets to help their comeback. Plus, they have one of the deepest receiving corps in the NFL. Expect Randall Cobb to see a ton of targets over the middle while James Starks could also come out of the backfield as a hot receiver. Finley could miss time with this injury.
