Washington S Landon Collins left in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Cowboys with an ankle injury. The issue was serious enough to have him carted from the sideline to the locker room. FOX Sports injury analyst Dr. Matt Provencher said the injury looked like it could be a high-ankle sprain or even an Achilles' tendon tear. Either would make Collins droppable in most IDP redraft leagues. We'll see about the official diagnosis.

Update: NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that the team believes it's a torn Achilles' tendon.

Washington has ruled SS Landon Collins (shoulder) out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. That likely leaves Jeremy Reaves as the starter in a secondary already down a bunch of CBs. The team also this week placed FS Montae Nicholson and CB Quinton Dunbar on IR. CB Fabian Moreau has also continued to miss practice this week and looks unlikely to play. It all creates a strong matchup for Dallas QB Dak Prescott, TE Jason Witten and the WRs. Only Prescott's shoulder injury stands as a question mark here, but it's certainly not enough to push him out of starter territory.

Washington S Landon Collins (Achilles') is active for today's game against the Giants. He should see plenty of tackle opportunities in a secondary that won't play any of its top 3 corners.

Washington S Landon Collins (Achilles' tendon) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants but looks likely to play. HC Bill Callahan said Thursday that Collins had a good chance to play despite missing the week's 1st 2 practices, according to the team website. And then Collins returned to a full workout Friday. We'll check his status Sunday morning. Washington will be without starting CB Quinton Dunbar (hamstring) for the 2nd straight game and will likely also miss starter Fabian Moreau (hamstring, doubtful). Washington recently placed CB Jimmy Moreland on IR as well, leaving a shoddy secondary looking even worse against a healthy and talented crew of Giants WRs.

Washington S Landon Collins took part in practice this week, marking his return to the field following shoulder surgery. HC Jay Gruden told the Washington Post that the team is "still very cautious" with its key free-agent signing but that Collins is taking part in 7-on-7 drills and that they hope to have no limitations by training camp.

New Washington S Landon Collins doesn't seem to think his December shoulder surgery will be an issue for the coming season. "I'm way ahead of it," Collins told The Washington Times, when asked about his recovery and rehab. "It's definitely on schedule." The big contract certainly seems to indicate the team isn't worried. Barring some training camp setback, expect to find Collins near the top of our 2019 DB rankings.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Washington has reached a 6-year, $84 million agreement with S Landon Collins, including $45 million guaranteed over the 1st 3 years. That's a record for annual average and guaranteed money at the position. Collins should certainly have a shot to continue ranking among the top IDP options in his new home. The Giants, meanwhile, gain a significant hole at the position, behind a shaky LB corps.

The Giants have informed S Landon Collins that they won't give him the franchise tag, meaning he'll reach unrestricted free agency. If the team finds the franchise number too high, it seems unlikely New York will reach a long-term deal with the star safety. Collins should remain a strong IDP factor in just about any landing spot. We'll be interested to see where he goes.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports that Giants S Landon Collins is headed to IR with a shoulder injury that will require surgery. That leaves an already-weak defense without arguably its best player for the final 4 games. It also leaves IDP owners without a top-5 fantasy DB. Michael Thomas looks like the fill-in but would make for a risky lineup replacement in Week 14. We'll see if he gives us a performance that points to usability over the final 2 weeks of most fantasy seasons.

Giants S Landon Collins suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's win over the Bears and will miss next Sunday's visit to Washington, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The report gives no specifics on the injury so far, adding that the team will "evaluate" it "going forward." Collins' absence is bad news for the Giants' team D in an upside matchup with Mark Sanchez and a Washington offense ravaged by injury. It's good news, however, for Washington TE Jordan Reed.

Giants S Landon Collins confirmed Wednesday that he needs a 2nd surgery on the right forearm he fractured late last season, according to Art Stapleton of Collins will reportedly need 6-8 weeks of recovery time, which should still allow him to start training camp on time. We'll keep an eye on the situation as we move into summer, but IDP owners needn't worry just yet.

Giants S Landon Collins suffered a right forearm fracture in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. He didn't know as of Monday whether the injury will require surgery, but it obviously ends his 2017 season. Andrew Adams will likely start in Collins' place against Washington in Week 17.

Giants S Landon Collins is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He played through a "doubtful" tag in last Sunday's loss to the Eagles but perhaps shouldn't have. Collins made it through just 27% of the snaps before re-injuring the joint and leaving. Collins is too big a risk for most IDP leagues this week.

Giants S Landon Collins (ankle) is surprisingly active for today's game against the Eagles. He had been listed as doubtful after getting in just a limited practice on Thursday. Obviously not at 100%, Collins is a risk/reward IDP play today.

Giants S Landon Collins (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Eagles. It would mark the 1st game Collins has missed in his 3-year career.

Giants S Landon Collins left Sunday's loss to the Cowboys early in the 4th quarter after spraining his left ankle. Collins left the stadium in a walking boot but said the injury doesn't appear to be serious. "It's better. It was throbbing when it happened, but other than that, I think it's real mild," Collins said afterward, according to "It's not too much of an end-of-season injury." The fact that just 3 games remain on a lost season for the Giants could affect his active status. We'll see how the Giants handle their star safety this week.

Giants S Landon Collins is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Broncos because of an ankle sprain. reports that Collins has "vowed" to play in the game. We'll seek further updates on his expected status over the weekend.

Giants 3rd-round pick S Darian Thompson looks like the favorite to start next to S Landon Collins this season. According to Newsday, the pair "looked terrific working together in the spring and likely will start the preseason as the Giants' two starters." Thompson reportedly displayed the turnover-creating skills that helped produce 17 INTs in college. He's starting to look like the answer at free safety, which could allow 2015 second-round pick Collins to play in the box more. A truer SS role would better fit his strengths. The pair could help the defense as a whole, while Collins' altered role would likely enhance his IDP value. Both Giants safeties would be in consideration range in fantasy football drafts.
