Packers Won't Find Out About FS Nick Collins Until March
Green Bay Packers safety Nick Collins, who had spinal fusion surgery in late September, meets with his surgeon in March. If everything checks out, Collins will return next season according to Rob Reischel of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, if there's any doubt whatsoever, Collins will retire and spend far more time with his family. "It's cut-and-dried. If the doctor says I can go back, then I'm definitely going back," Collins said the day after Green Bay's season ended with a 37-20 loss to the New York Giants. "If he says stop, I'm stopping. That's it. Collins had surgery just more than a week following the injury and was in a neck brace until late October. Collins talked about wanting to become a coach, which many read as his way of saying his playing days were done. But Collins met with his doctors in December and got good news, keeping open the possibility that he could be cleared to play come March. "I always am going to say I'm going to come back, but at the end of the day, I still have to make a decision," Collins said. "I have to make sure everything's all right with the team doctor, the doctor that did the surgery, my family, my friends. "At the end of the day, it's going to be a tough decision, but I'm positive that I'm going to make it back."
