The Washington Football Team ended a five-game losing streak, but it wasn’t all good news Sunday.
It is being reported safety Landon Collins has suffered a season-ending Achilles injury during the 25-3 win over the Dallas Cowboys, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.
“MRI tomorrow but team expecting bad news there,” Garafolo wrote on Twitter.
In the second quarter, Collins needed to be helped off the field after chasing down Cowboys QB Andy Dalton on a scramble. Collins went down immediately grabbing the back of his leg and was taken to the locker room on a cart.
Collins told NFL reporter Josina Anderson he felt a “pop” and surgery is the next step for him.
Washington turned to Kamren Curl to fill in for Collins at safety, partnering him with Deshazor Everett, who replaced Troy Apke in the starting lineup earlier this season.
Washington also saw defensive end Montez Sweat head to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion and right tackle Morgan Moses hobble off the field. No updates were given on their injuries after the game.
Earlier in the game, Collins sacked Dalton and the play led to a safety.
Collins was the major signing in free agency before last season, signing a six-year, $84 million deal with $44.5 guaranteed. Collins carries a $17.2 million cap hit for 2021.
