Packer Notes: The Injuries Are Worse Then Expected

Both S Derrick Martin and TE Jermichael Finley looked badly hurt last Sunday. But then it appeared Finley might only miss 3-6 weeks. Now that isn't happening. From the Journal-Sentinel:

The Packers placed safety Derrick Martin on injured reserve with a knee injury that he suffered Sunday at Washington. His season is done.

Finley's recovery is expected to now be 8-10 weeks and the Packers are deciding whether or not to wait for his return.

Follow the link to read the explanation. While Finley's injury isn't as severe as expected, that will lengthen the recovery time. No good news here, just more issues for the Green Bay Packers to work through.
