Report: Former Alabama DB Landon Collins suffers injury believed to be season-ending
Landon Collins left Sunday’s Washington-Dallas game on the injury cart. While the injury is still being evaluated, things aren’t looking good for the former Alabama standout.
“Collins is believed to have suffered a season-ending Achilles injury, sources say. MRI tomorrow but team expecting bad news there,” NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo shared on Twitter.
According to ESPN’s John Keim, Collins was hurt on a third-and-5 play in which he was up near the line of scrimmage. After engaging with a blocker, Collins appeared to go down without any contact.
Keim writes that after the play, Collins limped slowly to the sideline, was evaluated in the medical tent and then carted off to the locker room.
Collins was having a productive Sunday prior to his injury, logging 4 tackles, including a strip-sack of Dallas quarterback Andy Dalton resulted in a fumble and safety for Washington in the first quarter of the team’s 25-3 win. Collins has 37 tackles on the season in 2020.
A three-time Pro Bowl selection and first-team All-Pro in 2016, Collins is in his sixth NFL season. After playing for the New York Giants from 2015-18, Collins signed a six-year, $84-million deal with Washington ahead of the 2019 season.
Collins played at Alabama from 2012-14 before leaving to enter the NFL Draft.
