The New England Patriots could get linebacker Jamie Collins back for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Boston Herald’s Jeff Howe reports Collins traveled with the team to Pittsburgh after missing last week’s game with a hip injury. His status for Sunday’s game is currently unknown, however.
It’s an encouraging sign to see Collins travel with the team and his presence would be greatly welcomed. Collins has 32 tackles, 1 sack and 2 interceptions in five games this season.
New England’s defense will face a short-handed Steelers offense that will be without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on Sunday afternoon at Heinz Field.
