Collins could be out a couple weeks

Packers safety Nick Collins could be out a couple weeks.

That's the estimate made by coach Mike McCarthy today.

Collins injured his left knee while making a tackle midway through the third quarter.

The third-year player went down while tackling Chiefs receiver Samie Parker on Kansas City's first drive of the second half. Parker made a move before hitting Collins head on, sending the safety's body twisting back over his left knee.

Collins had to be helped from the field and was taken away on a cart a few minutes later.
