Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley was carted off the field with a neck injury during a win over the Cleveland Browns.

The Packers announced that Finley had movement and feeling in every extremity and was taken to a hospital to be examined.

Finley was hit by Browns safety Tashaun Gipson, who was penalized for unnecessary roughness for leading with his helmet.

"It's a reminder how tough this game is," Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told reporters. "We put our bodies on the line, our future health on the line and obviously with Jermichael he was playing really well. He's a great friend, great teammate.

"He's had a very good year for us. Injuries are a part of the game. But those are tough to see. Not being able to walk off the field I know, in the back of our minds, is kind of our worst nightmare."
