Johnathan Franklin's Neck Injury Proves Career Ending

After Johnathan Franklin had his rookie season cut short due to a neck injury, many assumed that Franklin, a fourth round draft pick out of UCLA, would be able to return within the next few years. Yet with today's announcement by Packers head coach Mike McCarthy saying Green Bay has officially released Franklin, the UCLA running back followed up by announcing his retirement from football. An All-American in college, Franklin and Lacy were supposed to help take some pressure off of Aaron Rodger's arm for the next few years, but obviously, that task will now fall solely upon Eddie Lacy. We wish Franklin the very best in his life after football.
