 GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -Packers safety Nick Collins will miss several games with a knee injury after making an awkward tackle.
``We all figured the worse the way he went down,'' Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Monday. ``It's going to be at least a couple of weeks.''
Collins sprained a ligament in his left knee on Sunday in Green Bay's 33-22 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs as the Packers improved to 7-1. Collins was injured while tackling wide receiver Samie Parker early in the third quarter. As Collins collided with Parker, Collins' knee was bent back.
Collins, a third-year safety who has started all 40 games in his career, had an MRI done that revealed no damage, but he couldn't bend his knee after the game and needed crutches.
``Everybody saw it, it looked a lot worse on film,'' McCarthy said. ``The evaluation was actually positive, the MRI was positive.''
McCarthy said Collins would not need surgery.
Rookie Aaron Rouse is expected to take Collins' spot in the lineup after filling in for the rest of the game against the Chiefs.
``If he has to go, we feel very confident,'' McCarthy said. ``We'll be fine.''
