Collins missed the first four games this season because of an NFL suspension for performance-enhancing substances. He was eligible to play in the past two games but the Falcons didn’t add him to active roster.
“It wasn’t a case of him not being ready,” Quinn said Thursday. “He was fit. He came in great shape. It wasn’t a negative reflection upon him, we just ended up going with who we have. Some of the corners have a very significant role on special teams. It was a matter of (not) putting someone else down to bring him up.”
