Packers head coach Mike McCarthy announced Monday that FS Nick Collins will miss the rest of the season with a neck injury.

Collins suffered the injury in Green Bay's Week Two win against the Panthers and was taken off the field on a stretcher.

The seventh-year veteran has started every game of his career except three in 2007. Last season, he made 70 tackles, 12 passes defensed and four interceptions. He returned an interception 37 yards for a touchdown in the Super Bowl win.
