It really was a good Friday for the Green Bay Packers, as injured tight end Jermichael Finley reportedly hit the practice field and is now running routes.

Finley tweeted earlier today:

"Today was the first time since Week 5 that I caught a ball & ran routes. An my my my I look good.."

Finley's Week 5 knee injury ended his season early in 2010. Replacement tight end Andrew Quarless filled in nicely, but obviously, Aaron Rodgers and the offense can't wait to see Finley back in action after placing 301 yards and a single touchdown on the board in just four weeks.

Packers practice is set to commence sometime during early August. Depending on the lockout, though, no dates have been finalized just yet.

However, even if the NFL's labor problems remain unsolved, general manager Ted Thompson assured Packer fans that the team is keeping track of injured players development throughout the offseason.

"What's important to know is, the Packers are getting ready for football," Thompson told the Associated Press. "We've got a season schedule sent out. Mike McCarthy has training-camp schedules all done. There is no contact with players, but our players are very professional and I'm sure they're getting ready. We're hopeful that a deal gets done, just like everybody else."
