Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is scheduled to be released from the hospital on Thursday, Jason La Canfora with CBS Sports reported on Wednesday.
Finley was carted off the field in the fourth quarter of the Packers' win over the Browns last week after taking an ugly hit to the helmet from Tashaun Gipson. Finley reportedly suffered a bruised spinal cord in the hit.
Doctors don't think the injury will permanently sideline Finley's career, but many people expect the Packers to place him on the injured reserve in the coming days. He was on his feet and walking after the night in the intensive care unit as a precaution.
Finley had 25 receptions for 300 yards and three touchdowns on the season. Finley's injury was yet another in a long line for the Packers this season. Linebacker Clay Matthews is out with a broken thumb and wide receiver James Jones missed Week 7 with a knee injury.
