Collins has been in the league since 2015. After spending his first 7 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, he signed with the Bengals this offseason. Hopefully, we see Collins back in action next season.
The Bengals are 11-4 and have clinched a berth in the playoffs. Cincinnati is first in the AFC North heading into a Week 17 matchup against the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football.
