Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley has revealed that he has been moved out of an intensive care unit and was able to walk again following the injury he picked up during Sunday's match against the Cleveland Browns.
Finley suffered a bruised spinal cord in his neck after a hit from Browns safety Tashaun Gipson during Green Bay's 31-13 win, receiving six minutes of treatment on the field before being taken to ICU.
However, the 26-year-old has taken to Twitter to reassure fans about his condition, revealing that he had full feeling in his limbs and is able to walk around.
"I want to thank my family, friends, teammates, fans and Packer Nation for the prayers and support over the past 24 hrs. I'm happy to report that I have been transferred out of the intensive care unit and that I have full feeling in my arms and legs," Finley tweeted.
"As importantly, I was able 2 walk to & from the shower today, which was badly needed after yesterday's victory! Thank u again 4 the support, and Go Packers!"
Finley was also knocked out of a game in week three of this season, suffering concussion after a tackle by Cincinnati safety George Iloka.
