Collins (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
With Nat Berhe (hamstring) already ruled out, Andrew Adams likely will get the start at strong safety. It's a major downgrade for the Giants' struggling secondary and a big loss for anyone counting on Collins for the fantasy playoffs in IDP league. The third-year safety is the only non-linebacker with triple-digit tackles for the season heading into Week 15.
Collins (ankle) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
After the session, head coach Steve Spagnuolo noted Collins took part in individual drills, which was a step up from Wednesday's lack of activity. Despite that DNP, Collins spoke about his health afterward. "It's sore, but other than that, I'm going to be able to play on Sunday," Collins told Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site. Collins has never missed a game in nearly three seasons as a pro, so the progress made so far this week has him trending in a positive direction.
Collins (ankle) won't participate in practice Wednesday, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.
The Giants haven't issued an official comment on Collins' outlook for the final three regular-season contests, but given the 2-11 team's place in the standings and the fact that the safety was sporting a walking boot coming out of Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, Schwartz suggests it's "highly unlikely" that Collins will play Week 15 against the Eagles. That would come as a major blow to Collins' owners in IDP settings, who have benefited from the second-year player's massive numbers (46 tackles, one interception, one fumble recovery) over the Giants' last four contests.
Collins has a boot on his left ankle after Sunday's game against the Cowboys and said it's a mild sprain, Kimberly Jones of NFL Network reports.
This is the same ankle that he suffered a high-ankle sprain to earlier in the season, but Collins sounds optimistic about his health going forward. The young stud surpassed 100 tackles for the third time in his career in as many years, so having him ready for Week 15's game against the Eagles would be useful. If he can't go, expect Nat Berhe and Andrew Adams to see increases in their defensive snap counts.
Collins injured his ankle during Sunday's game against the Cowboys and is questionable to return, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Collins had seven tackles (six solo) before leaving Sunday's game in the fourth quarter. The third-year pro has been lights out this season, compiling 95 tackles, six pass breakups and two interceptions through 12 games. If this injury is deemed serious, Collins could miss the first game of his career. For the time being, expect Nat Berhe and Andrew Adams to rotate in.
