In light of the severe neck injury suffered by Nick Collins last week, he's been declared to be out for the rest of the season. I haven't seen anything that tells me that the Packers have placed him on IR, freeing up his spot for another player to be active and available to play on Sundays.
Do you think that we will eventually put him on IR, or do you think that Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson are waiting until they find out the complete severity of his injury before making that decision? If there is a sliver of hope that he can make it back, do you think that we leave his roster spot open for him to possibly return in the playoffs? It is not unheard of, considering that the Steelers did this for Rod Woodson several years back.
I don't think that they know quite the true extent of his injury yet, just that it's gonna require some sort of surgery. Perhaps they're hoping that it will be less severe than origionally suspected. Tell me what you think we should do?
What do we do if there is a slight chance that Collins comes back?
