Dallas Cowboys offensive tackle left Wednesday’s practice early because of an undisclosed injury. Mike Fisher from Sports Illustrated gave an update about his condition moments ago.
Fisher claims that Collins was suffering from neck/shoulder pains and had to leave practice early. This injury is not considered serious and Collins should be “OK” going forward.
Fisher tweeted, “Source tells Me La’el Collins Is OK” after Cowboys practice with neck/shoulder pain.” “Nothing major.”
This is great news, especially for Collins who missed the entire 2020 season due to a hip injury.

Collins has appeared in 61 games since joining the Cowboys back in 2015. Collins has made 61 starts in the NFL, most of which have been at right tackle. However, it is worth noting that he could also play other positions on the offensive sideline.
The Cowboys learned last season how ineffective their offense is without their top linemen. They must ensure that they are as close as possible to 100 percent in the trenches if they hope to be a playoff-worthy team.
Dallas should keep Collins away from the last two preseason games, as the regular season is only a few weeks away. He doesn’t have to learn a new quarterback or learn a new system.
