Jermichael Finley will turn to surgery in an attempt to save his NFL career.
Blake Baratz, the agent of the Green Bay Packers tight end, said in a statement obtained by NFL Media that Finley will undergo spinal fusion surgery. ProFootballTalk first received the statement.
"We have collectively determined that while surgery may not be 100 percent necessary, it is a proactive measure that should alleviate future risks with regards to a similar episode or re-injury," Baratz said. "Once surgery has been completed, Jermichael has every intention of resuming his football career, and we fully support his efforts to do so."
