After hit on Finley, McCarthy questions if some injuries can be avoided

CREATED Oct. 21, 2013

Like most of Packers Planet, coach Mike McCarthy endured the painful moments of seeing tight end Jermichael Finley go do with a neck injury during the Packers' 31-13 win over Cleveland on Monday.

He even spent part of Sunday night with him at a local hospital.

However, in an exclusive conversation with 620WTMJ/NBC26's Larry McCarren, he said he's not sure if there's a way to stop some of the injuries that happen in football.

"I think you definitely have to realize that some injuries, I don't know if they can be avoided," admitted McCarthy. 

In McCarthy's mind, the hit from Tashaun Gipson which led to Finley's injury wasn't dirty.

"I didn't see it as an egregious (hit).  He kind of got caught in a bad moment.  I didn't think it was a dirty hit at all."

The Packers next face the Minnesota Vikings on the road.

You can watch Sunday's Packers-Vikings game with coverage beginning at 6:00 p.m. on TODAY'S TMJ4 and NBC26, with the radio broadcast at 5:00 p.m. on 620WTMJ and on your desktop computer.
