The playing future of Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is
still up in the air, but it looks like life goes on.  Finley tweeted out yesterday that he was
discharged from the intensive care unit of the hospital and was able to get out
of bed and walk to the shower.  Finley
also thanked family, friends, and teammates for the support.  Reports say that Finley bruised his spinal
cord on the 2nd half hit he took on Sunday. 


The Packers aren’t the only team dealing with injuries.  The Bears will be without QB Jay Cutler for
at least a month after he tore his groin in Sunday’s loss to Washington
Their best defensive player Lance Briggs will also miss at least 6 weeks
with a shoulder injury.  Rams QB Sam
Bradford and Colts WR Reggie Wayne are both lost for the season with torn
ACLs.  Tampa Bay
may be without Doug Martin for the rest of the season because of a knee injury
as well.


The New York Giants picked up their first win of the season
with a 23-7 win over the Vikings on Monday Night Football.  The Giants defense held Adrian Peterson to
just 28 yards on 13 carries.  The Vikings
will host the Packers on Sunday Night Football next weekend.  Week 8 of the NFL season begins on Thursday
night as Tampa Bay
hosts Carolina.


The Brewers have resigned infielder Taylor Green to a minor
league contract with an invite to the Major League Camp.  The Reds will promote pitching coach Bryan
Price as their new manager, replacing Dusty Baker.  Tigers Manager Jim Leyland announced he won’t
return to the team in 2014.  During his 8
seasons in Motown he won three division titles and two American League


The Bulls crushed the Bucks 105-84 on Monday night in Chicago.  Derrick Rose scored 24 points in 27 minutes
for the Bulls.  Gary Neal led the Bucks with
14 points. The Bucks play the New York Knicks on Wednesday night at the Resch Center
in Green Bay.


freshman guard Duane Wilson will miss multiple weeks with what is called a
stress fracture in his left leg.  The
