Cowboys' La'el Collins: Ready to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) is absent from the Cowboys' final injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Patriots, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Collins injured his left knee in last week's victory over the Lions, but the issue does not appear to be anything to worry about. Barring any setbacks, look for him to resume his usual role as the team's starting right tackle.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins suffered a left knee injury in Sunday's win over the Lions, but there's optimism he'll still be able to start Week 12, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Collins has been battling knee issues for much of the season, and he now appears to have added a new injury. The 26-year-old's potential availability for Sunday's game at New England should receive additional clarity when Dallas resumes practicing Wednesday.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Suting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee/back) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Lions, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Collins didn't practice during the week and only logged limited practice time Friday, so his status was uncertain. He'll be ready roll Sunday despite the lack of practice time and is expected to assume his usual role as the starting right tackle.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee/back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Collins had not practiced until he did so on a limited basis Friday. Cameron Fleming has recovered from his calf injury and will take Collins' place if the veteran can't go.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Sits out again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee/back) did not participate in Thursday's practice, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Collins has been managing a knee issue for much of the season, but he's been able to suit up in three straight games. Cameron Fleming could be looking at more playing time against the Lions if the 26-year-old can't go Sunday.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Ready for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) won't have an injury designation for Monday's game against the Giants, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Collins was a limited practice participant this week but that appears to have been precautionary as he's good to go for Monday. The 26-year-old will take up his usual starting post at right tackle.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Will play Sunday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) is active Sunday against the Eagles, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Collins was expected to suit up, and that is, in fact, the result. The Cowboys will have their whole offensive line healthy, with Zack Martin and Tyron Smith also playing.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Should play Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the Eagles, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Collins worked as a limited participant Thursday and Friday to earn the questionable tag. The 26-year-old was unable to play last week versus the Jets but should reclaim his starting spot at right tackle Sunday.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Collins logged limited practices Thursday and Friday and therefore has a shot to play Sunday. His return would provide a huge boon to the Cowboy's offense.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Unavailable Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) won't play in Sunday's game against the Jets, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Collins wasn't expected to be ready for this game, and he was eventually deemed unfit during warmups. Tyron Smith (ankle) is also out, so Cameron Fleming is expected to start at left tackle, and the Cowboys will need to bump over a guard to fill Collins' void.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Not expected for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) isn't likely to suit up in Sunday's game against the Jets, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Rapoport was pretty definitive in his report that the team will be without the lineman, which isn't a good sign for Collins' availability. As always, wait for the official word when inactives come out 90 minutes before kickoff. If Collins is indeed out, look for Brandon Knight to get the start at right tackle.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Collins, who suffered a sprained MCL against the Packers in Week 5, will be a game-time decision. Cameron Fleming is in line to fill in for Collins if he is forced to sit.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Sits out Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) was a non-participant at practice Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Collins suffered a sprained MCL during Sunday's loss to the Packers, so it's not much of a surprise to seem him start out the week not practicing. The 26-year-old is considered day-to-day after undergoing an MRI on Monday, but he'll need to practice in some capacity this week to have a chance of playing Week 6.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Called day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) is considered day-to-day after receiving an MRI on Monday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Collins suffered a sprained MCL during Sunday's loss to the Packers. It appears as though he's avoided any sort of major sprain, which could have required 2-to-4 weeks to recover from. However, it still remains to be seen whether Collins will recover in time to play Week 6 against the Jets.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Dealing with sprained MCL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins' injury Sunday against the Packers was a sprained MCL, Todd Archer of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

The recovery timetable for a sprained MCL can vary significantly, as it's typically only a few days for minor sprains and can take 2-to-4 weeks for more significant ones. Collins can be considered questionable for Dallas' Week 6 game against the Jets at this point.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Hurts knee Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins was forced out of Sunday's game versus the Packers with a knee injury, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The Cowboys were already struggling without Tyron Smith (ankle) in the lineup, so Collins' injury is salt in the wound. Undrafted rookie Brandon Knight will fill in at right tackle in Collins' place.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Will play against Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (back) is active for Sunday's game versus the Packers, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Collins shaking off this injury in time is a major development considering Tyron Smith (ankle) has already been ruled out. Collins will start at right tackle.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Deemed questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (back) drew a questionable designation ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Packers, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Collins was able to practice in limited fashion Friday after being sidelined earlier in the week. Fellow starting tackle Tyron Smith (ankle) has already been ruled out, so Collins' status will be critical for the Cowboys' line. Cameron Fleming is already in line for a bigger role.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Ready for season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (shoulder) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

This injury likely wasn't a major concern since the Cowboys signed Collins to a five-year, $50 million contract extension Tuesday. Nevertheless, it's great news that the Cowboys' offensive front is near full health -- Zack Martin is still battling a back issue -- ahead of Week 1 versus the Giants.

Cowboys' La'el Collins: Gets five-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (shoulder) has agreed to a five-year contract extension with the Cowboys, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The deal reportedly places Collins among the five highest-paid right tackles in the league, with Collins joining Trent Brown (Raiders), Ja'Waun James (Broncos), Mitchell Schwartz (Chiefs) and Lane Johnson (Eagles). The 26-year-old has dealt with shoulder and groin injuries in recent weeks, but he's coming off back-to-back seasons with 16 starts. Having now locked up Collins, Jaylon Smith and DeMarcus Lawrence (shoulder) in the last six months, the Cowboys still need to figure out extensions for Ezekiel Elliott (holdout), Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper (foot/heel) and Byron Jones (hip).
