(WNFL) - Packers' tight end Jermichael Finley was placed on season-ending injured reserve yesterday, after he bruised his spinal cord on October 20th against Cleveland.  He was motionless for six minutes after he caught a pass and was hit in the helmet by a defender's charging shoulder.  Coach Mike McCarthy said Finley would play tomorrow if it were up to him -- but the coach said all the medical documents he received showed that Finley should wait at least until next year.  He's a free agent at the end of the season.  Also, Packers' inside linebacker Sam Barrington was placed on the I-R with a bad hamstring he hurt Monday night.  Guard T-J Lang remains out with a concussion suffered against the Bears.  When he left, right tackle Don Barclay moved inside to Lang's right guard spot, and Marshall Newhouse was plugged in at right tackle.
