Collins was limited at practice this week with the illness and ankle issue to earn the questionable tag, but won't miss Saturday's game. The 24-year-old will play a heavy role on the Cowboys' defensive front in Los Angeles.
Collins had three solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's 27-20 win against Tampa Bay.
The sack is Collins' first since Week 6 against the Jaguars, as he has offered little in terms of statistical production. The 24-year-old played 56 of 80 defensive snaps Sunday and has only 17 tackles and three sacks through 12 games.
Collins will play through a lingering knee injury, exactly as he did during last week's win over the Redskins. The third-year pro will serve his usual starting role in Dallas' defensive line, and attempt to slow down Drew Brees and the Saints' offense on Thursday Night Football.

Collins (knee) is listed as quesitonable for Thursday's game against the Redskins, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Collins was limited in practice all week, and could be a game-time decision for Thursday's divisional tilt against the Redskins. If Collins were to be limited to any extent, Antwaun Woods would receive an uptick in snaps.
