The Packers announced that they have placed Pro Bowl safety Nick Collins on injured reserve.
Collins was injured on September 18 when he was attempting to tackle Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart. Collins spent the night in a Charlotte hospital, but returned to Green Bay the following day.
Collins underwent successful neck surgery on September, but whether or not he can continue his playing career will not be known for six months, his agent, Alan Herman, said.
Offensive lineman Ray Dominguez has been signed off the practice squad to take Collins’ spot on the 53-man roster.
