Nick Collins appears to be OK

It’s good news coming out of North Carolina about Nick Collins. The Packers safety was strapped to a backboard and rolled off the field on a stretcher after his neck was awkwardly twisted while moving in on a second half tackle today against the Panthers.

An update from the Packers was posted about an hour ago.

It read: “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.”

That’s great news for the Packers and their fans. Injuries are serious enough, but when they involve the neck and head you can only hope for the best.

Coach Mike McCarthy had this to say: “All the feedback so far has  been positive.”

All fans of the NFL hope for the best, too.
