Ex-Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley took to Twitter following Jordy Nelson's knee injury during the team's preseason loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday afternoon.
Some on social media must have interpreted Finley's Tweet as a slight against his former quarterback, because he clarified his original comment with a follow-up Tweet two hours later, emphasizing his belief in Rodgers and sympathy for Nelson.
Finley, 28, was the Packers' third-round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. He played six seasons in Green Bay, accumulating 223 catches for 2,785 yards and 20 touchdowns.
A serious neck injury, which required spinal-fusion surgery, forced Finley out of pro football in 2013.
