Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Nursing knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 preseason. As he continues to get healthy, look for Collins to continue to play a major role on the Cowboys' defensive line.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Will be brought along slowly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins won't participate in team drills for the time being, and the plan is for the defensive tackle to be eased into action over the next few weeks, Jon Machota of the Dallas News reports.

Collins, who underwent surgery to repair a fractured foot in May, had spent most of the summer on the PUP list before gaining activation Monday. It's no surprise that he'll need time to reacclimate to the pace of live action, but there at least doesn't appear to be any concern over his availability for Week 1.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Passes physical Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (foot) passed his physical Monday and has been removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list, Ian Rapaport of NFL Network reports.

Collins fractured his fifth metatarsal back in May, leading to the second surgery on his left foot this year. The defensive tackle's passed physical has him on track to be healthy by the start of the regular season, barring a setback. As Collins is eased back into action, expect Jihad Ward to continue seeing work with the first-team defense.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: In pads Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (foot) was dressed in pads for Monday's practice, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Collins, who fractured his foot this spring, isn't taking part in practice and firmly remains on the Physically Unable to Perform list. However, his appearance in shoulder pads and a helmet signals that the defensive tackle doesn't seem far off from receiving medical clearance to join his team on the field. In Collins' absence from training camp, Jihad Ward has been getting extra run with the first-string defense, per Jean-Jacques Taylor of NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth.
