Collins, 26, played in five games for the Bears last season, credited by team stats with 13 tackles and a sack before suffering a season-ending ACL tear in a Week 5 home loss to the Saints.
Palmer spent training camp with the Bears in 2013, was released before the start of the regular season but then rejoined the club in late-October after starting quarterback Jay Cutler tore a groin muscle. Palmer remained on the roster through season’s end but did not see action in any of the team’s final nine games.
He could be No. 2 behind Cutler this season if Josh McCown leaves as a free agent.
Collins took a shot to the knee, and was initially ruled questionable. After being examined in the locker room, it was determined Collins would not return.
Collins took a tough hit to his knee, but was able to walk off the field on his own. He went back to the locker room to be examined. With Henry Melton and Stephen Paea already out, the Bears interior pass rush is severely limited.
