NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Finley is moving around and in good spirits one day after he was taken off the field on a stretcher after suffering a neck injury against the Cleveland Browns.
Finley was injured at the conclusion of a 10-yard reception in the fourth quarter of the Packers' 31-13 win Sunday. Browns cornerback Tashaun Gipson was flagged for leading with his helmet on the play, though replays showed Gipson hit Finley cleanly with his shoulder.
USA Today reported Finley isn't expected to require surgery, according to a person with knowledge of his condition. A source tells Rapoport that Finley, 26, likely will leave the intensive care unit Monday.
A source told USA Today it could be "weeks" before the Packers know if Finley can return to the field.
UPDATE: Finley was transferred out of ICU on Monday night.
