Packers head coach Mike McCarthy revealed that starting FS Nick Collins, who was taken off the field on a stretcher with a head/neck injury in Green Bay's 30-23 victory in Carolina, was still being evaluated, but that the prognosis is good.

"Nick Collins has normal feeling and complete movement in his extremities," McCarthy said after the game. "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."

Collins' head was severely twisted after Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart's upper leg came down on Collins' helmet. The three-time Pro Bowler gave a thumb's up as he was being carted off the field.

Also injured in the Panthers game was DE Ryan Pickett, who suffered a sprained foot and was unable to return to the game. McCarthy did not offer any specifics on Pickett's injury
