GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Although it hasn't been announced officially, starting Packers safety Nick Collins did not return for the start of the third quarter against the Cincinnati Bengals. Collins hurt his shoulder towards the end of the first half.

The Packers are already short on safeties. Starting strong safety Atari Bigby didn’t play Sunday due to a knee injury.

Green Bay offensive tackle Chad Clifton also was carted off the field (never a good sign) in the third quarter with an ankle injury.
