NFL free agent tight end Jermichael Finley is still recovering from spinal chord fusion surgery following a neck injury that brought an early end to his 2013 season. Finley remains a free agent as he awaits a clean bill of health, and one team keeping an eye on his progress is his former team, the Green Bay Packers.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy discussed Finley while speaking to the media recently, and he said that he is hopeful Finley will be able to return to the team once he is 100 percent.

“In my mind he is a Green Bay Packer -- hopefully,” McCarthy said on SiriusXM Radio with Rich Gannon, via ESPN Wisconsin. “[Finley] is going through a tough medical situation. I think we all recognize that it was a serious injury. My understanding is he is doing everything and beyond to get himself ready. We’ll continue to watch that.”

Finley was a big part of the Packers offense over six years in Green Bay and was starting to come into his own before the injury, so having him back in the huddle with quarterback Aaron Rodgers could be a big bonus for the team.
