Collins (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports. Collins was held out of practice all week while nursing a knee injury he suffered in Sunday night's game win over the Giants. It's unclear how severe the injury is, but Collins should continue to be considered day-to-day until the Cowboys can provide another update on his status.
Collins (knee) is a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, Jon Machota of the Dallas News reports. Collins continues to nurse a knee injury sustained during Week 2's game against the Giants. The defensive tackle is considered day-to-day, so it remains to be seen whether Collins is able to suit up against the Seahawks on Sunday. If the 23-year-old were to miss any time, Daniel Ross would serve as his replacement.
Collins is listed as day-to-day with a knee injury, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. Collins apparently sustained the injury during Sunday's game against New York. The extent of the injury remains relatively unclear, leaving his status largely up to speculation. With a day-to-day designation, it's likely the Cowboys aren't too concerned with Collins' health moving forward.
Collins recorded one tackle and one sack across 24 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Collins underwent surgery to repair a fractured foot in May and missed a good portion of the preseason as a result, as he did not take part in team drills until the final week of the exhibition slate. As he continues to get healthy, look for Collins to play an increasingly larger role on the defensive line.
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Thursday that Collins (foot) is uncertain to be ready for the start of training camp in late July, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports. Collins broke the fifth metatarsal in his left foot in May during the Cowboys' offseason conditioning program and is still recovering from surgery to repair the fracture. It doesn't sound like he was able to do any meaningful work on the field during the team's minicamp this week, so it may be difficult for the Cowboys to bank on Collins making enough progress over the next month to take snaps with the first-team defense when camp opens. If Collins remains sidelined for the first week or two of camp, the Cowboys could consider shifting him to the Physically Unable to Perform list in order to create more room on the roster.
