Jermichael Finley reports his knee is as good as new

Jermichael Finley reported back on April 22 that he was running routes for the first time since undergoing multiple knee surgeries in the fall.

Less than three weeks later, he’s ready to announce that his right knee feels as good as new.

“I just thought to myself that its May & this knee feels brand new already,” Finley said on his personal Twitter account. “This what my Pack Fans been waiting 4 huh.”

It’s good news for Finley, who has been forced to rehabilitate the last two months without the supervision of the team’s trainers. He had surgery to repair a torn meniscus after Week 5. A healthy Finley will add another dimension to the potent offense of the defending Super Bowl champions.
