Packers TE Jermichael Finley in ICU

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley @JermichaelF88 had to be immbolized on the field and carted off the field after suffering a big hit to the head/neck. He remains in the ICU with doctors keeping an eye on his health. The NFL Network reported Finley will be "fine." He was concussed Week 3 so another concussion would be a big problem.

Fantasy Analysis:

This was an obvious knockout blowhit delivered by Cleveland's Tashaun Gipson @Gipson_duos24. Was it intentional? It didn't look like it to me. Gipson led with his inside shoulder and Finley tucked his head as the two collided. We'll see if the league hands down a fine for the safety. There is no timetable for a potential return since it's far too early in the process to know how this will end up. The Packers are already paper thin at receiver having already lost Randall Cobb @rcobb18 and James Jones. Behind Finley on the depth chart is Andrew Quarless and a handful of young players.
