  • Patriots' Jamie Collins: Limited Thursday

    Collins (ankle) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice. The linebacker popped up on the Patriots' injury report Wednesday with an ankle issue, but he was able to practice in a limited capacity Thursday. Collins will now enter the Patriots' wild-card game against the Bills with a questionable designation, and if he can't play, Josh Uche would likely step into a larger role.

  • Patriots' Jamie Collins: Returns to practice

    Collins (ankle) was spotted practicing Wednesday, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports. With the linebacker returning to practice for the first time since going on IR prior to the team's Week 10 matchup, the Patriots have a 21-day window to restore him to their active roster. Otherwise, he will be forced to miss the remainder of the season. Collins has played a minor role in his five games since joining the Patriots, recording seven tackles, a sack and an interception.

  • Patriots' Jamie Collins: Deemed doubtful

    Collins (ankle) is listed as doubtful ahead of Sunday's game against the Browns. Collins picked up an ankle injury in the Pats' Week 9 victory over the Panthers. Should he end up not being able to suit up against Cleveland -- he appears to be trending in that direction -- some combination of Josh Uche and Ronnie Perkins would be in line for extended roles.

  • Patriots' Jamie Collins: Nursing ankle injury

    Collins didn't participate at Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports. Collins apparently picked up the injury during Sunday's win over the Panthers while totaling two tackles and an interception in 16 defensive snaps. The 32-year-old will likely need to practice in some capacity Thursday or Friday to have a chance of suiting up this weekend versus Cleveland.

  • Lions' Jamie Collins: Unimpressive versus Packers

    Collins had five tackles (four solo) during Monday's 35-17 loss to the Packers. Stats don't tell the entire story of Collins' night, as he and fellow inside linebacker Alex Anzalone consistently failed to match Green Bay's quickness and were regularly beaten to the edge. Roughly one month away from turning 32 years old, Collins may simply no longer possess the speed he did earlier in his career. If his play doesn't improve, the Lions could be pressured to give younger players, such as rookie fourth-round pick Derrick Barnes, more opportunities.

  • Lions' Jamie Collins: Looking healthy

    Collins is ready to go for the upcoming season, Kyle Meinke of mlive reports. The versatile defensive player has recovered from his neck injury suffered toward the end of the 2020 campaign and is on track to return to his starting role. In his first year in Detroit, Collins tallied 101 tackles, one sack, six pass breakups and three forced fumbles over 14 games in 2020. The veteran linebacker is projected for another three-down role this year, alongside new addition Alex Anzalone.

  • Lions' Jamie Collins: Misses practice Wednesday

    Collins (neck) did not practice Wednesday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. The Lions didn't hold practice Tuesday, but Collins was listed as an estimated DNP for that session as well. Given that this is a short week for Detroit -- they play Tampa Bay on Saturday -- logging at least a limited session Thursday could be crucial for Collins' chances of suiting up. Reggie Ragland would likely start in Collins' place if the latter is unable to play Saturday.

  • Lions' Jamie Collins: Paces team in tackles

    Collins registered a team-high nine total tackles during Sunday's 34-20 loss to the Vikings. Collins continues to rack up impressive totals, as the two-time Super Bowl champion has now accumulated eight or more tackles over four of his past five game appearances. The 31-year-old also has one interception to his name in 2020, though Collins has otherwise been unable to generate another takeaway over eight appearances. Inability to force turnovers has plagued the Lions defense, as the unit currently is tied for 29th in takeaways and 28th in points allowed per game.

  • Lions' Jamie Collins: Totals nine tackles

    Collins logged nine tackles during Sunday's 35-29 loss to the Saints. Detroit played some its best defense of the season Sunday against a solid Saints offense, and Collins played a large role in any success the unit had. Considering the 29-year-old has the potential to contribute in run support, as a pass-rusher or in pass coverage, Collins should remain an interesting IDP prospect throughout the year.

  • Lions' Jamie Collins: Reaches quarterback Sunday

    Collins recorded five tackles, two for a loss, and a sack across across 56 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Packers. Collins rebounded nicely against Green Bay after being ejected from Week 1's contest due to an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. He recorded his first sack in a Lions uniform, taking down Aaron Rodgers for a loss of 11 yards. At 56 defensive snaps, Collins logged the second-most reps among linebackers for Detroit.

  • Lions' Jamie Collins: Won't face suspension

    Collins won't be suspended after being ejected from Sunday's loss to the Bears, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Collins' helmet made contact with an official in the first half, and he was promptly ejected with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. The league determined that it wasn't severe enough for Collins to miss additional time, so he'll be ready for Week 2's matchup versus Green Bay. Collins was impressive before the ejection, recording three tackles, a pass breakup and a QB hit.

  • Patriots' Jamie Collins: Excels in pass rush

    Collins made seven tackles (five solo), two sacks and a pass breakup in Sunday's 30-14 win over the Jets. Collins now leads the team with 19 tackles and 2.5 sacks. The veteran linebacker isn't even considered a starter on the Patriots' defense, making his early success that much more impressive. However, starter Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) was injured during Sunday's game, so Collins could be a top IDP pickup this week heading into next Sunday's contest versus the Bills.

    Collins recorded five tackles (three solo), 0.5 sacks, two defended passes and two interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown, in Sunday's 43-0 win over the Dolphins. Collins led the Patriots in tackles and was disruptive in getting after Miami's quarterbacks. His production came despite playing just 58 percent of New England's snaps on defense. The 29-year-old will work to keep up his momentum Week 3 versus the Jets.

  • Patriots' Jamie Collins: Return to New England official

    Collins officially agreed to a contract with the Patriots on Wednesday, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports. The terms of the deal weren't disclosed, but Collins will rejoin the Patriots for at least the 2019 season. The 29-year-old is expected to be present for on-field work as soon as Thursday in preparation for what could be a heavy workload as an off-ball linebacker for a defense that coach Bill Belichick is expected to coordinate in 2019. Collins averaged over seven tackles per game in his prior three seasons with the Patriots from 2014 to 2016, which would prorate to 116 tackles over a 16-game slate.
