Jerry Jones on the status of La’el Collins: “We don’t know. I don’t know. The doctors don’t know.”
We have reached Week 4 of the 2020 season which means that players placed on injured reserve before everything began are now eligible to return. Notable players for the Dallas Cowboys that fit this qualification are Sean Lee and La’el Collins. It was reported that The General underwent hernia surgery and could be out until mid-October, but the status of right tackle La’el Collins is still very unknown.
Last week there was a report that Collins “does not appear on track” to be activated during the first week that he is eligible to do so, but we are now at a point where questions are starting to hang over more than Week 4. Mike McCarthy said during his Monday press conference that Collins is dealing with something that “obviously is significant” but this is the extent to which the Dallas Cowboys are willing to discuss what’s going on. Until now. Sort of.
