The Patriots are expecting to get their star linebacker back in the lineup on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. Collins' return comes at a great time. The Patriots are banged up on both sides of the ball and no one is certain how much time Hightower is going to miss.
Collins has missed the last four games with a mysterious illness (some have recently speculated he had mono). He last played on Oct. 29 against the Miami Dolphins.
