Maliek Collins ruled out of Week 5

Cowboys defensive lineman Maliek Collins (knee) has been officially ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Texans.

Fantasy Impact

This will make three straight games missed by Collins with the knee issue. He has two tackles and one sack in two games in 2018.

Maliek Collins in line for 15-to-20 snaps in Week 1

Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli said he expects defensive lineman Maliek Collins to be on the field for 15-to-20 snaps in Sunday’s season opener against Carolina.

Fantasy Impact

Collins is still working his way back after missing most of the summer following offseason foot surgery. He started all 16 games in 2017, recording 22 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and two fumble recoveries.

Maliek Collins on pace for Week 1

When asked about Maliek Collins’ health in a recent radio interview, Cowboys VP/Director of player personnel Stephen Jones stated "At the end of the day, we do feel really good about Maliek being ready to play in that first game.” Collins missed the early portion of training camp while recovering from offseason foot surgery.

Fantasy Impact

It’s great to hear optimism from the Cowboys on Collins’ availability for Week 1. Jones went on to say Collins may be on a “pitch count,” but “short of a set back,” he should be good to go. Collins started all 16 games in 2017, recording 22 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and two fumble recoveries.

Maliek Collins activated from PUP

The Cowboys activated defensive tackle Maliek Collins from the physically unable to perform list on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Collins had been on PUP since the start of training camp while he recovered from offseason foot surgery. It was his second surgery in four months to repair a fractured fifth metatarsal in his left foot. The Cowboys plan to take it slow with Collins but he is expected to be ready for Week 1. “He’s just progressing,” head coach Jason Garrett said Sunday. “He won’t be practicing in the next few days, but hopefully we’ll work him back here before the end of the preseason.” Collins started all 16 games in 2017, recording 22 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and two fumble recoveries.
