Jermichael Finley placed on IR by Packers

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Jermichael Finley's season is over.

The Packers have placed Jermichael Finley on season-ending injured reserve, according to Finley suffered a spinal cord injury in Week 7 against the Browns. He has yet to appear in a game since the injury occurred.

Finley has been with the Packers since 2008. He appeared in six games this season and caught 25 passes for 300 receiving yards and three touchdowns. Finley is among a large list of Packers starters have experienced serious injuries this year. Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, Nick Perry and James Jones have all suffered injuries that have led to them missing games.

With Finley out for an extended period of time, backups Andrew Quarless and Ryan Taylor will have to pickup the slack. Quarless has started four games this season but has only caught 11 passes for 75 yards. In his fourth season, Quarless has only scored one touchdown in his career.

The Packers will host the Eagles on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET on FOX.
