    Per ESPN, and all the Packers writers. A shame, hope the best for Nick.

    That's so sad :/ I wonder if it was worse than they thought? or they are being safe about it. Either way it's a shame and I wish Collins the best

    They say he is wearing a neck brace, not sure on the surgery. Odd that he would be out for the season and not have surgery. But, who knows, something could have happened to a nerve, the spinal cord, or a broken/fractured bone. If that is the case they probably are taking no risks, but for him to already be ruled out for the season this quick is definitely cause for concern. I'm purely speculating, but they must feel that another hit to that area could probably do life long damage.

    Horrible news, like a punch to the stomach. We can only hope that he can recover from this and not have any long-term damage.

    Sucks he's out for the season, and as much as I start worrying about our secondary now that he's out, I'm much more concerned about his future with the team and for his overall future well being.

    Jesus Christ, not this again. Can we go like 45 minutes without losing one of our best players for the season! I'm so f-ing upset right now.

    I'm glad they put Collins on IR. No way he should play again this season even if he's healthy. Health comes first.

    As far as the defense, Morgan Burnett and Charlie Peprah are more than serviceable. What I'd be more worried about is if one of them go down. More Charles Woodson at safety then or Jarrett Bush all the time?

    What a damn shame! I hope it's not spinal stenosis - that's a pre-existing narrowing of the spine that caused Terrence Murphy (WR drafted in '05) to end his career. IMO only Woodson, Matthews, and Raji are more important to this D. Collins has CB speed and he's played at an all-pro level for past few years now. Burnett has looked really good, but what a damn shame! The Packers are fortunate to have a backup like Peprah - we know he's good enough to win a title with. Now "all" Burnett has to do is emulate Collins.

    The play he got hurt didn't look that bad, although with spinal injuries you never know. I replayed it back in slow motion and it looked like the top of his helmet hit the back of the Panther's thigh/butt as he jumped over him.

    DAMN!

    i don't even wanna think about if one of them goes down. How valid are these stories about bringing back sharper?

    yep, collins is a huge loss. imo, he's just as important as williams and woodson. that pick six in the sb will forever be one of my top plays to remember. i don't have full faith in peprah and i have seen burnett blow coverage too many times.

    more importantly, i hope collins is okay for his family's sake and for his future not as an nfl player, but as a person as a whole.
