Jermichael Finley Injury: Updates on Packers TE's Hand, Likely Return Date
Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley suffered a hand injury in Sunday's Week 2 contest at Lambeau Field against the Washington Redskins.

NFL Network's Albert Breer noted that Finley headed to the locker room, while Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports provided the specific part of Finley's ailment:

It is unclear when Finley is slated to return at this time, but Breer's assertion that the game was over is pretty accurate.  

The Packers held a commanding 31-0 lead after a quick four-play, 60-yard drive in the third quarter. Finley had gotten a good piece of the action, too, catching five passes for 57 yards and a three-yard touchdown.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the passing attack have been firing on all cylinders, and Finley's emergence has definitely helped.

Plagued by inconsistency in the past, head coach Mike McCarthy praised Finley for having the best camp he's ever had in what is his sixth season in Green Bay, per PackersNews.com.

Finley recorded five receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' 2013 season-opening road loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 1.
