EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Depending on the availability of Jay Cutler, veteran backup quarterback Todd Collins feels like he can play in Carolina if necessary.

Collins left the game Sunday night with a stinger suffered a fourth-quarter hit by Giants linebacker Michael Boley.

"My neck is a little stiff, but other than that, I'm okay," Collins said after the game. "I don't see why not. My neck is not an issue."

Collins finished 4 of 11 for 36 yards and one interception, while emergency quarterback Caleb Hanie fared better during his short stint.

"I played poorly," Collins said. "They dominated us on offense this game."
