Alex Collins: Workout set in Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins began going through COVID-19 protocols Friday with the Seahawks and could be added to the practice squad if cleared next week, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

The 26-year-old also worked out with Seattle in late 2019 but never signed on with the team. Collins was a fifth-round pick by the Seahawks in 2016 and had 973 rushing yards and six touchdowns the following season in Baltimore, but he hasn't seen any action since the 2018 campaign. Chris Carson (foot), Carlos Hyde (hamstring) and Travis Homer (knee) are all banged up for Seattle, so Collins would provide some necessary backfield depth if signed.

Alex Collins: Works out with Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins worked out with the Seahawks on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Collins auditioned for his old team, where he rushed for 125 yards and one touchdown on 31 carries back in 2016. The Seahawks are continuing to explore options at running back after signing Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin last week to combat a long list of injuries at the position.

Alex Collins: Auditions for Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins took part in a tryout with the Bills on Friday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

Collins required surgery in mid-July to address a broken leg and was handed a three-game suspension from the NFL on Nov. 1 stemming from an offseason arrest, but he's now in the clear from both health and legal standpoints. The 25-year-old will now turn his focus toward finding employment before the season wraps up, though the fact that he didn't take part in training camp with a club may hinder his efforts. Collins may have to wait until after Week 17 to sign a reserve/future contract or some other deal that contains little guaranteed money.

Alex Collins: Suspension lifted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (leg) had his suspension lifted by the NFL, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Collins has missed the entire season due to his legal situation as well as a broken leg. Without a suspension looming, he's now free to sign with a team.

Alex Collins: Handed three-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (leg) will be suspended three games as a result of his arrest for possession of a handgun and marijuana in March, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Collins pleaded guilty to the charges earlier this month and received probation, and the NFL has now apparently made a decision on its own form of punishment. Collins' legal situation and broken leg dissuaded any team from adding him to its roster in the offseason, but with his legal situation now cleared up, and him on the verge of completing his recovery from the leg injury, there's a chance he could garner interest from teams looking for running back help for the back half of the season.

Alex Collins: Legal situation finalized
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins pleaded guilty Friday to misdemeanor charges of possession of a handgun and marijuana, which stemmed from his March 1 arrest, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

According to Rapoport, the NFL will now consider a possible suspension for Collins now that his legal situation has reached its conclusion. The running back, who was waived by the Ravens just hours after his arrest, later suffered a broken leg in the offseason, which effectively eliminated any market that might have existed for his services. Collins should be fully recovered from the injury by the end of the month and could end up surfacing with a team if he avoids a significant suspension.

Alex Collins: Suffers broken leg
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins underwent surgery to repair a broken leg, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Collins, an unrestricted free agent, was reportedly nearing a conclusion to his pending legal situation and drawing interest from multiple teams to play in 2019. The unfortunate timing of his injury now means that Collins will need to focus on returning to full health before searching for a new home in the league. The 24-year-old is coming off a disappointing 2018 campaign with the Ravens in which he logged 114 carries for 411 yards and seven touchdowns across 10 games, averaging 3.6 YPC.

Alex Collins: Facing criminal charges
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (foot) is facing criminal charges for possession of a handgun in a vehicle, possession of more than 10 grams of marijuana, and intent to distribute marijuana, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

Collins crashed his car into a tree Friday morning and was waived by the Ravens later that day. Regardless of how things play out from a legal perspective, he likely will receive some form of punishment from the NFL.

Alex Collins: Cut by Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ravens waived Collins (foot) on Friday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Collins was arrested Friday morning after his car crashed into a tree about a mile away from team headquarters. He previously was scheduled to become a restricted free agent, with no assurance of receiving a tender even before Friday's incident. The 24-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Ravens' Alex Collins: Arrested after car crash
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (foot) was arrested Friday morning after his car crashed into a tree about a mile away from Ravens headquarters, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.

Ravens spokesman Chad Steele said the team has spoken to the police and is aware of the situation. Collins is scheduled to become a restricted free agent this offseason, and there had already been speculation about the Ravens non-tendering him. Charges against Collins may be announced Friday afternoon.

Ravens' Alex Collins: Could be available in offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (foot) is scheduled to become a restricted free agent this offseason, following a disappointing 2018 campaign in which he took 114 carries for 411 yards (3.6 average) and seven touchdowns in 10 games.

The touchdowns were really the only positive, as Collins lost a full yard off his YPC mark from a breakout 2017 season and also coughed up three fumbles before suffering a season-ending foot sprain. He lost the lead job to Gus Edwards once Lamar Jackson took over at quarterback, with the undrafted rookie proving to be a better fit for an offense heavy on zone-read runs. Now facing questions about scheme fit in addition to ball security, Collins actually can become an unrestricted free agent if the Ravens decide he'd be overpriced at approximately $2 million for an original-round RFA tender. Baltimore has Edwards and Kenneth Dixon under contract for 2019, while Javorius Allen and Ty Montgomery are scheduled to hit the open market. Given that he avoided surgery, Collins should regain his health before the start of offseason activities.

Ravens' Alex Collins: Won't require surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins, who was placed on injured reserve Saturday, won't require surgery to address a sprained foot, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

The Ravens' surprising decision to move Collins to IR ends his season, but the running back should be back to full strength well in advance of the spring, when he'll become a restricted free agent. Though he's had issues with ball security in his brief career, Collins has shown plenty of promise as a ballcarrier with an average of 4.2 yards per carry and 15 touches through 36 career games. It's unclear if the Ravens will have much interest in retaining Collins if youngsters Gus Edwards and Kenneth Dixon are both effective down the stretch.

Ravens' Alex Collins: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (foot) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

It's a bit of a surprising designation given Collins was initially listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Falcons and actually logged a full practice Friday. In a corresponding move, the Ravens will activate Kenneth Dixon (knee) from injured reserve. Dixon joins a crowded backfield that should continue to be led by Gus Edwards (ankle), so long as the undrafted rookie is healthy enough to take the field. Dixon will likely chip in behind Ty Montgomery, who impressed in his limited opportunities as the backup against the Raiders last week, while Javorius Allen may have dropped to fourth on the depth chart. The roster move puts an end to a disappointing season for Collins, who looked like an intriguing fantasy option heading into the season after amassing 1,160 total yards and six touchdowns in 2017. A restricted free agent this offseason, Collins may struggle to regain his starting job in 2019, particularly if the likes of Dixon, Edwards or Montgomery make good use of their opportunities in the final weeks of the 2018 season.

Ravens' Alex Collins: Iffy in Week 13, despite practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Updating a previous report, Collins (foot), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, was a full participant in Friday's practice.

The Ravens released their injury designations for Sunday's contest before their final practice of the week concluded, so it wasn't immediately known how extensively Collins was involved in the session. After Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reported that Collins was absent from the portion of the session available to the media, it was assumed that the running back would be listed as a non-participant for the third consecutive practice, but he apparently was able to do enough behind closed doors to constitute full participation. Friday's activity suddenly makes Collins' chances of playing this weekend more likely, though after sitting out the Week 12 win over the Raiders and practicing only once, it wouldn't be completely surprising if he was on the inactive list again. If Collins suits up, he might struggle to earn a double-digit carry load, as the Ravens have shown a preference to feature Gus Edwards (ankle) -- who is also listed as questionable but is expected to play -- in the backfield alongside quarterback Lamar Jackson. Collins' fantasy outlook would improve if the Ravens were to reinstall Joe Flacco (hip) as their starting quarterback once he's back to full strength.

Ravens' Alex Collins: Gets questionable tag for Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Though the designation implies that Collins has a 50 percent chance of playing Sunday, his odds of actually doing so don't seem nearly as favorable. After sitting out last week's win over the Raiders due to the injury, Collins failed to practice Wednesday or Thursday and wasn't spotted on the field during the portion of Friday's session that was available to the media. The lack of activity leading up to the contest suggests Collins would probably only handle a limited role even if he avoids the inactive list this weekend, likely setting up Gus Edwards (ankle) for another turn as the Ravens' clear-cut top option out of the backfield. Edwards is also listed as questionable, but his availability seems in less peril after he followed up a limited practice Thursday with a full showing Friday.

Ravens' Alex Collins: Not seen at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (foot) wasn't spotted on the field during the media-access portion of Friday's practice, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Collins was able to get some limited work in at Thursday's practice, but it appears he will sandwich "DNP" listings around that. That's hardly encouraging with regards to his availability for Week 13 against the Falcons, but the Ravens will provide official word on his status shortly after Friday's practice concludes. If Collins is held out for the second straight game, it would clear the way for Gus Edwards to once again serve as the Ravens' unquestioned top back.

Ravens' Alex Collins: Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (foot) was listed as a limited practice participant Thursday.

So was Gus Edwards (ankle) and with both trending toward Week 13 active status, Collins' projected workload in the Ravens backfield Sunday against the Falcons is hampered by the emergence of Edwards over the team's last two outings.

Ravens' Alex Collins: Returns to field Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (foot) returned to practice Thursday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

The same applies to fellow running back Gus Edwards (ankle), though it remains to be seen how the Ravens list the duo's participation level. While Collins seems to have a solid shot to play Sunday against the Falcons, his role in the Baltimore offense has been clouded by the recent emergence of Edwards.

November 28, 2018 07:20 PM
Ravens' Alex Collins: Not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (foot) didn't practice Wednesday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

An earlier report from Zrebiec indicated that Collins -- who was inactive for the Week 12 win over the Raiders -- is viewed as day-to-day in advance of Sunday's game against the Falcons. While Collins' absence Wednesday is no surprise, it's worth noting that fellow running back Gus Edwards also didn't practice Wednesday, though it's possible that Edwards was simply being rested.

Ravens' Alex Collins: Not on track for practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach John Harbaugh said Collins (foot) was unlikely to participate in practice Wednesday and is viewed as day-to-day ahead of Sunday's game against the Falcons, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Collins' expected absence from practice to begin the week suggests the foot issue remains a concern for the running back, who missed his first game of the season in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Raiders. He'll still have two more chances to make it back to practice before this weekend's matchup with Atlanta, but Collins appears unlikely to reclaim primary duties out of the backfield even if he gains clearance to play. According to Zrebiec, Harbaugh was unwilling to say if quarterback Joe Flacco (back) would practice or play this week, which likely means that Lamar Jackson is trending toward a third consecutive start. If that's the case, an available Collins would probably be marginalized in favor of Gus Edwards, who has cleared 100 rushing yards the past two games and has more comfort and familiarity working out of the zone-read formations the Ravens often deploy when the speedy Jackson is under center.
