Free Agent RB Alex Collins Now Healthy, No Longer Suspended

Free agent running back Alex Collins has recovered from a broken leg he suffered earlier this year and is now available to work out for teams, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (Twitter link).

Not only has Collins regained his health, but his three-game suspension has officially concluded, per Rapoport. The 25-year-old was handed the ban earlier this month pleading guilty to two misdemeanor charges for possession of a handgun and possession of marijuana.

A fifth-round pick of the Seahawks in 2016, Collins broke out the following season after making his way onto the Ravens’ active roster. In 15 games (12 starts), Collins posted 973 yards and six touchdowns on 212 carries, good for 4.6 yards per attempt. He also finished eighth in Football Outsiders‘ success rate, which measures how well a running back helps move the sticks.

It’s unclear if any NFL clubs will have interest in Collins as the end of the regular season approaches. While teams will surely be wary of Collins’ off-field problems and health question marks, his age and past production will likely garner him a few workouts.
