Collins out Week 14 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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.

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 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.
