Browns’ Jamie Collins Done For Season

Browns linebacker Jamie Collins is done for the season with a torn MCL, coach Hue Jackson announced. Collins has officially been placed on the injured reserve list, per a team announcement. Jamie Collins (vertical)

Collins was injured after pulling down his first interception of the season in the first quarter of action. Although he was able to walk off of the field under his own power, doctors diagnosed him with an MCL injury after the game. Today, he was informed that the tear was severe and would require several months of rest.

Collins, 27, re-signed with the Browns this offseason on a four-year, $50MM contract. At the time, the former Patriot probably had higher hopes for the Browns rebuild. After yesterday’s loss, the Browns have now sank to 0-9 on the year.

The linebacker’s season ends with 31 total tackles, one interception, one sack, one forced fumble, and three pass deflections.

For what it’s worth, Pro Football Focus has him rated as one of the worst qualified linebackers in the NFL this year with a 35.9 overall score. He had a similarly disappointing 47.6 mark last year, a major drop from his work with the Pats in ’14 and ’15.

      Fleeced huh? Do you even know what they got for him? A draft pick they didn’t even use.

          • dust44

            I guess by fleeced u mean gave him up for a pick they used to trade to get something else and they weren’t going to give him 4-50 anyway. All he did was give a guy to the worst franchise ever that didn’t listen to his pats coaches and freelanced too much. Perfect for the Browns because they have no coaches or control there
