Todd Collins suffered shoulder injury in Chicago Bears' loss to Green Bay Packers
Jay Cutler wasn't the only Chicago Bears quarterback to leave the NFC championship game against the Green Bay Packers because of an injury.
Todd Collins, subbing for Cutler, hurt his shoulder, an injury that drew considerably less attention than Cutler's, and will have an MRI today and may require surgery. It seemed odd that Caleb Hanie would come in before the end of the third quarter, a move that automatically rendered both Cutler and Collins ineligible for the rest of the game and now there's clarity on the matter.
Even though he doesn't have a lot of in-game mileage on his body, Collins is 39 and a shoulder injury may threaten his career. He's started four games since 1997, including a memorable run to the playoffs with the Redskins in 2007. He signed a one-year deal with the Bears in August.
