Nick Collins out for the year

Green Bay Packers safety Nick Collins is out for the season with a neck injury and will be placed on injured reserve. Collins hurt his neck against the Carolina Panthers. No announcement was made whether the injury will end his career, and it's regarded as premature to say how long he'll be out other than this season.

Collins had started the past 55 games.

Collins remained in Charlotte, N.C. at a local hospital for observation Sunday night and the team released the following statement: "Nick Collins has normal feeling and complete movement in his extremities. As is standard protocol, he will be kept in the hospital overnight for observation. When he returns to Green Bay, he will undergo further testing and evaluation.”
