Collins (forearm) sported a regular jersey during individual drills but was held out of team drills at minicamp Tuesday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic New York reports.
Collins shed his non-contact jersey during portions of OTAs but put it back on when the team took to team drills. He appears to be full go for the start of mandatory minicamp and should resume his duties as a starting safety entering his contract year in 2018.
Collins (forearm) shed his non-contact jersey for the early part of Monday's practice, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Collins ended up putting the non-contact jersey back on for team drills, but noted afterward that he's right "on schedule" in his recovery from a fractured right arm and could be fully cleared for next week's minicamp, according to Vacchiano. The Giants could place some restrictions on Collins in minicamp as a precaution, but the star safety shouldn't face any limitations by the time training camp arrives.
Collins (forearm) no-contact jersey and worked into individual drills during OTAs on Tuesday, Ryan Dunleavy of NJ.com reports.
Collins also worked into "seven on seven" drills, which makes coach Pat Shurmur "hopeful" about his return for training camp in mid-July, adds Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York. Despite the Giants' woes in 2017, Collins shined through by posting his third straight 100-tackle season as the team's strong safety.
Collins (forearm) hopes to participate in mandatory minicamp starting June 12, SportsNet New York reports.
Collins has underwent two surgeries since breaking his forearm in late December. The 2015 second-round pick has been a starter since Week 1 of his rookie campaign, accruing three straight seasons with 100-plus tackles. Collins has also broken up 28 passes and posted eight interceptions in that span. Once he's back to full health, the 25-year-old should be a stellar IDP option once again.
Collins underwent surgery on his right forearm Monday, Matt Lombardo of NJ.com reports.
The surgery comes just a month after Collins suggested he was 100 percent healthy. While that doesn't appear to be the case, the expectation is that the Giants' defensive catalyst will only be sidelined 6-8 weeks, meaning he should be fully ready to go for the season opener. The two-time Pro Bowler has a stranglehold over both Michael Thomas and Ryan Murphy at the strong safety spot.
