The Giants have placed EDGE Azeez Ojulari on IR after he suffered a setback with his calf injury this week, according to ESPN's Jordan Ranaan. The 2nd-year player had already missed the previous 2 games. He'll now sit out for at least the next 4. Edge players Oshane Ximines and Jihad Ward stand to benefit from Ojulari's absence. Ximines is out for today's game against the Jaguars with a quad injury, which should leave Ward and Kayvon Thibodeaux playing large snap shares. The Giants also plan to play S/LB Landon Collins for the 1st time since signing him ahead of the Week 5 win over the Packers. We'll see how large a role Collins commands amid an evolving LB corps.

The Giants are signing S Landon Collins, who started his career with the franchise before a stint with Washington. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the team plans to use Collins in more of a LB role, which fits what he last did in Washington before his release. The Giants have also recently added former Bills LB A.J. Klein and signed Jaylon Smith to the active roster ahead of last week's game, then played him for 50% of the snaps. The team is clearly still trying to figure out a plan at LB, which doesn't seem like great news for Tae Crowder. He remained the only non-edge LB playing full time for them against the Bears in Week 4 but has been a limited performer throughout his time as a starter. We'll see how this situation develops. Don't be surprised if it becomes a full-on committee.

The Commanders are expected to release S Landon Collins after attempts at restructuring his contract couldn't reach a deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Collins rebounded decently from a 2020 Achilles' tendon tear to play in 13 games last season, average 6.2 total tackles per game, grab a pair of INTs and tally 3 sacks. He spent time in safety and LB roles for a Washington defense that disappointed overall. Collins figures to get a shot at another starting job elsewhere this offseason.

Washington placed S Landon Collins on IR Friday for his foot injury. With just 3 games left in the regular season, that means Collins is droppable in all redraft formats.

Washington S Landon Collins (foot) is active for today's game against the Cowboys.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Washington expects S Landon Collins (foot) to play against the Cowboys today, barring a setback in pregame. Collins missed Week 13 but should be ready for IDP lineups this week.

Washington S Landon Collins (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He missed last week's game with the injury but made it back for limited practices the past 2 days. We'll see about his status Sunday.

Washington HC Ron Rivera said Monday that he expects DE Montez Sweat (broken jaw) and S Landon Collins (foot) to be cleared to return to practice this week. Sweat has missed the past 4 games with his injury. Collins missed Sunday's win over the Raiders with an injury he suffered late in the previous week's win over Seattle. We'll keep an eye on the statuses of both players through the week, but it seems they'll be back in play for IDP consideration for Sunday's upside matchup with Dallas.

Washington has ruled S Landon Collins out for Sunday's game against the Raiders with a foot injury. Collins has been splitting time at safety and LB in recent weeks, helping to improve the team's mid-range coverage. His absence enhances the matchup for Vegas TEs, RBs and Hunter Renfrow.

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.
