GREEN BAY, Wis. -

After spending the night in the hospital for evaluation, Jermichael Finley announced via Twitter that he has left the intensive care unit.

Finley tweeted- 

"I want to thank my family, friends, teammates, fans and Packer Nation for the prayers and support over the past 24 hrs. I'm happy to report that I have been transferred out of the intensive care unit and that I have full feeling in my arms and legs. As importantly,I was able 2 walk to & from the shower today, which was badly needed after yesterday's victory! Thank u again 4 the support, and Go Pack!"

He linked to a video Tuesday afternoon showing him walking down a hallway.

The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in r... on Twitpic

The Packers tight end suffered a neck injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the Browns. After making a catch, Finley got hit on the head by Browns' safety Tashaun Gipson. Finley remained motionless for several minutes before being taken off the field on a stretcher and taken to the hospital.

Monday, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said the team would not put a timetable on Finley's return to the team.
