He was back at the stadium with the team for the first time for a few hours Wednesday.</p> <p>Collier was shot 14 times on Sept. 2 and he's wheelchair-bound due to injuries from the shooting -- he lost his left leg, is paralyzed from the waist down and continues to endure extensive rehabilitation.</p> <p>Collier is expected to speak briefly with the press right after the game kicks off. I look forward to saying hello and sharing what he says.</p>
