Ex-Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is having more tests after his surgery, the same as Peyton Manning's, is still healing.

Finley visited Seattle during March but he hasn't been medically cleared by his doctor to continue playing.

After bruising his spine against the Browns, Finley underwent a neck fusion surgery, very similar to that of Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning.

That was in October and his doctor had said that there was only a 0.01% chance he wouldn't heal and the recovery time should be only a couple of months.

However he still doesn't have the all clear and will have more X-rays later this week and a follow up MRI scan.

The doctors will then communicate his progress to the interested teams. The Seattle Seahawks are reportedly interested in taking Finely on and the Green Bay Packers are interested having him back.

However all these decisions require a satisfactory medical clearance from his doctor and presumably their own medical teams.
