General manager Ted Thompson announced the move Tuesday. Finley had to be carried off on a stretcher after suffering a spinal cord contusion while being tackled Oct. 20 against the Browns.

Finley has said he plans to return to football. He was having a good year with 25 catches for 300 yards and three touchdowns.

Green Bay also placed linebacker Sam Barrington (hamstring) on injured reserve, and activated tackle Derek Sherrod from the reserve/physically unable to perform list.

Sherrod, a first-round draft pick in 2001, hasn't played since breaking his leg at Kansas City on Dec. 18, 2011.
