Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley says he's finally been transferred out of the ICU -- and was able to walk today -- after badly injuring his spinal cord during Sunday's game against Cleveland.

Finley -- who was removed from the field on a stretcher yesterday -- tweeted moments ago ... "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."

He added, "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 having a helluva game until he took a shot to the head while trying to catch a pass over the middle. Finley had already suffered a concussion earlier in the season and his son asked him to stop playing football.

Badly injuring his spinal cord? Do you even have the slightest clue what the injury was? If it was a real injury he would not be walking or taking a shower the next day. I call Bull****. He just saw stars and its all precaution

That was a scary injury. He was actually visibly shaking while on the ground and according to his teammate Quarless, when he offered him hand up Finley told him he couldn't move, though we was able to a few minutes later. The coach said today that they don't expect to know for weeks yet the full extent of the injury.

I would be shocked if he played again this season and not at all surprised if he decided to call it a career.

You can have a bruised spinal cord and be able to walk so to say he doen't have a serious injury is bull****. Any injury to the spine is serious. Thankfully he didn't have a paralyzing injury. And Skit, if you look at the picture its obvious he was in the process of catching the ball when the picture was taken. Prayers for a speedy recovery for Jermichael....Hook'Em!
