Collins tore the knee ligament on an interception return in Week 10.

Browns LB Jamie Collins exited Week 10 against the Lions with a knee injury.

Collins damaged his MCL trying to return an interception on Sunday, but the Browns are not sure of the severity of the injury. "We’ll find out more about that as we go, we just need to find out what degree that is and then we’ll know more as we move through the week," coach Hue Jackson said. Collins missed three games earlier this season with a concussion.

Browns OLB Jamie Collins has cleared the concussion protocol.

Collins has been sidelined since Week 2, missing three games. Collins' career has plateaued a bit since he came out gangbusters with the Patriots, but he's a three-down player who will give the Browns' beleaguered defense a boost.

Browns LB Jamie Collins (concussion) is doubtful for Week 5 against the Jets.

Browns LB Jamie Collins (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

Browns LB Jamie Collins (concussion) is officially inactive for Sunday's game at Indianapolis.

James Burgess will start for Collins at linebacker. This is positive news for Colts TE Jack Doyle. After allowing the second-most points to opposing tight ends in 2016, Cleveland has allowed a league-high 19 receptions and most fantasy points to the position to start the 2017 season.

Browns OLB Jamie Collins (concussion) is unlikely to play Week 3.

Collins was not able to practice on Wednesday, and there does not seem to be much optimism in the building he will be ready for Sunday's matchup against the Colts. James Burgess is expected to get the start in his place.

Browns OLB Jamie Collins suffered a concussion in the team's Week 2 loss to the Ravens.

He'll be questionable for Week 3 and have to pass the NFL's protocol concussion testing in order to receive clearance to play against the Colts.
Sun, Sep 17, 2017 05:51:00 PM

Browns re-signed OLB Jamie Collins to a four-year, $50 million contract with $26 million guaranteed.

Collins had been in the last year of his rookie contract, which prompted his mid-season trade from New England. He's now the NFL's fourth highest-paid linebacker on an annual basis behind Von Miller, Justin Houston and Clay Matthews. Used as a jack of all trades by the Patriots, Collins was given more edge-rusher opportunities in Cleveland and will be counted on to key the team's outside pass rush moving forward.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports free agent LB Jamie Collins is seeking $12 million annually.

The Browns have made "significant progress" in extension talks, with a contract between the sides expected to be finalized soon. Collins is looking for Luke Kuechly money (5 years, $61.8M). With the most cap space in the league, Cleveland shouldn’t have trouble getting a deal done.

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Browns have made "significant progress" in contract talks with impending free agent Jamie Collins, and are expected to finalize a deal by the weekend.

GM Sashi Brown is on record as hoping to keep Collins without the franchise tag. Collins' play was listless following his acquisition from the Patriots, but that's not surprising for a player going from the top of the league to the bottom. Still only 27, Collins is a versatile playmaker, and has been durable. He would be a nice building block for a team in the middle of a total reset.

Browns GM Sashi Brown said the team's goal is to lock up contract-year LB Jamie Collins and WR Terrelle Pryor without using the franchise tag.

Both would be huge re-signs for a Cleveland team otherwise low on talent, but Pryor and Collins are both young premier players who would be smart to test their market values. The Browns went out of their way to help Pryor transition to wide receiver and traded a third-round pick for Collins, but it's fair to wonder if either player wants to return to a perennial loser organization.

Impending free agent LB Jamie Collins says he’s open to re-signing with the Browns.

"If the money is right, then I could stay here," Collins said. "Obviously I’m not going to turn it down." The Browns traded for Collins with the intention of signing him to a multi-year deal. He could be franchised if an extension isn’t worked out.
