Packers TE Jermichael Finley promising hard knocks this season

Jermichael Finley is feeling fine and looking to run over any defender that gets near him.

This is great news for the Green Bay Packers.

Finley has 11 catches for 121 yards and two touchdowns heading into Week 3 at Cincinnati on Sunday. The right knee injury that hampered him in the past is long gone, and the tight end says Thursday "From this point on, it's going to be hard to hit me and bring me down, I promise you that."

Finley had six receptions for 65 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's victory against Washington, including 59 yards after the catch. His signature play was a 27-yard catch-and-run early in the third quarter when he broke three tackles.
