Finley misses Packers practice with concussion



GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley missed Friday morning's practice with what coach Mike McCarthy called a "mild concussion."

   The injury occurred Thursday, when players were not in full pads. McCarthy says Finley will be out for a couple of days. According to NFL rules, Finley will have to be cleared by an independent neurologist before being allowed to return to practice.

   Finley tied his career high for receptions (55) and set career bests for receiving yards (767) and touchdown receptions (eight) last season.

   Defensive end Anthony Hargrove, who signed with the team as an unrestricted free agent and is facing an eight-game NFL suspension for his involvement in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal, missed practice for a personal matter.
