Three weeks removed from surgery, Dallas Cowboys left guard La’el Collins said he could still play this season.
Collins tore a ligament in his right big toe blocking on an extra point attempt in the first quarter of the Cowboys’ Sept. 25 game against Chicago. It was initially reported he he would miss eight-to-12 weeks following surgery.
The Cowboys placed Collins on injured reserve and replaced him as a starter with Ron Leary. Collins was still in a walking boot and using a knee scooter to get around Monday in the Cowboys’ locker room, according to the Dallas Morning News.
“I’m in a good spot right now. I’m able to move it around a little more now,” Collins said. “It’s feeling good.”
