The Green Bay Packers have another serious neck injury to worry about.
The team is putting Franklin through more tests to determine if it's safe for him to continue playing, Demovsky reported, according to two sources with knowledge of the situation.
Franklin carried the ball just six times the rest of the season before being shelved following his Week 12 neck injury.
The 5-foot-10, fourth-round running back was drafted as a shifty change-of-pace player alongside power-runner Eddie Lacy.
Franklin has missed OTAs and minicamp as questions about his health grow.
The running back's status continues a bad trend for Green Bay, which has seen neck injuries of varying severity affect the careers of Jermichael Finley, Nick Collins, Sean Richardson and, famously, Sterling Sharpe.
