Johnny Jolly's amazing come back story appears to be over, for this year at least.
Per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel,
"According to a source familiar with the injury, Jolly has a bulging disc at the C-5 vertebra, and the medical staff is waiting for the swelling to go down before making an assessment on whether surgery will be necessary."
If it was determined that Jolly would need surgery it wouldn't necessarily be career ending. He is only signed through this season, so the Packers would need to re-sign him in the off season if they wanted to bring him back next year.
Packers defensive lineman, Ryan Pickett said of Jolly,
"We believe he'll bounce back. If anyone can fight through anything, it's Jolly. His spirits are good. He's been a leader out there. He's been playing great. He's been a whole lot. We're going to miss him out there for sure."
Jolly ends the season with 21 combined tackles and 1 sack.
