Report: Landon Collins could need surgery on previously broken arm

New York Giants safety Landon Collins suffered a season-ending broken arm last December. Now, as the Giants are starting their offseason program under new head coach Pat Shurmur, Collins could be looking at surgery to break the plate in his forearm, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reports.

Thankfully, Garafolo notes the time for recovery would be between six and eight weeks, meaning Collins should be back in time for training camp this summer.

Collins has been a mainstay for New York’s defense since being selected atop the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He’s made 47 starts since then, missing only one game after breaking his arm last year.

In the first three years of his career, Collins has racked up 254 tackles, eight interceptions (including this beauty for a touchdown), four sacks and two forced fumbles. He’s also been voted to two Pro Bowls and made First-Team All-Pro in 2016.
