The play above, from the fourth quarter of last weekend's Browns-Packers game, ended with Jermichael Finley temporarily paralyzed on the field after a major hit. He was carted off, began walking the next day, and was released from the hospital on Thursday after being diagnosed with a spinal contusion.
As we did for Jake Locker's injury, the graphic above chronicles the injury history of the 22 players on the field when Finley went down. While no one else has ever suffered a head/neck injury of such magnitude, there is no lack of serious damage. Ten players have undergone surgery for football-related injuries and five have undergone multiple surgeries for separate injuries.
