Giants Placing Landon Collins on IR

The New York Giants are placing All-Pro safety Landon Collins on injured reserve as he  will undergo surgery on his injured shoulder next week, ending his season, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.

The Giants are leaving the door open for Collins to return this season, but with the Giants struggling and Collins scheduled to hit free agency in March, it doesn’t seem to make much sense for Collins to rush his way back to the field in 2018.

Collins has collected 67 tackles, four passes defensed, and a forced fumble for the Giants this season.
