Collins (illness) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Broncos, the Boston Herald reports. On a positive note, Collins returned to to a limited practice Friday, but at this point it looks likely that the linebacker's return to game action won't occur until Week 13's tilt against the Eagles.

Collins (illness) did not practice Wednesday. An illness has kept Collins off the field for three straight games, but there is some hope that he could return to action Sunday night against the Broncos, given that the linebacker was finally healthy enough to return to Gillette Stadium on Wednesday.
Collins (illness) has been ruled out for Monday night's game against the Bills. He remained a non-participant in practice Saturday, and his absence Monday will leave the Patriots a little thin at linebacker. Considering it is just an illness, Collins is a good bet to return to action in the near future.
