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 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 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 NJ.com. "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 left Friday night's game with a knee injury. X-rays came back negative, according to multiple reports. We should find out the extent of the injury in the coming days.
