GREEN BAY, Wisc. -- Green Bay Packers starting tight end Jermichael Finley and starting linebacker Nick Barnett will likely miss the remainder of the 2010 season.

Finley, who injured his knee in the first quarter of Sunday's overtime loss to Washington, underwent successful surgery Tuesday and Barnett, who sustained a wrist injury in an October 3 win over Detroit, had a successful procedure performed on Wednesday.

Head coach Mike McCarthy said Finley's surgery "revealed more than we initially thought, so his timetable for recovery is longer than expected."

McCarthy said both operations were performed with the player's long-term future in mind and that a decision will soon be made as to whether or not they will be placed on injured reserve, which would end their seasons.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who suffered a concussion on an interception on the Packers last play in the extra session, did not practice Wednesday.

McCarthy said he is going through the standard protocol and testing following a concussion. The coach said he will not know anything more about Rodgers and whether or not he could practice or play in Sunday's game against Miami until Thursday morning.

McCarthy also said he does not expect linebacker Clay Matthews, who suffered a hamstring injury on Sunday, to be on the practice field before Friday.
