Nick Collins’ career is likely over

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, via Josh Katzowitz of CBSSports.com, former Packers safety Nick Collins is likely done as a professional football player after suffering a serious neck injury last season.

“La Canfora writes Collins was considering a return to the game and was training regularly at IMG Academy in Florida. ‘However, at a recent evaluation with the specialist who performed his neck surgery,’ La Canfora writes, ‘Collins was advised not to pursue football … effectively ending the process,'” wrote Katzowitz.
