With a Week Four bye Packers tight end Jermichael Finley won’t have to worry about whether he’ll be cleared to play only seven days after suffering a concussion. If Finley’s five-year-old son had his way Finley never would be cleared. “‘Daddy I don’t want you to play football anymore’” Finley’s son told his father by phone after Finley left the Week Three game in Cincinnati with a concussion. Finley described his son’s reaction and the incident on a video posted through Finley’s website. “Aaron Rodgers threw the ball I dove” Finley said. “And after that I felt the hit at my shoulder. After all that happened I was unconscious by then.” Finley was hit in the head by Bengals safety George Iloka who was fined $15000 for making contact to the head/neck area of a defenseless player.
