Collins is going to miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.The Giants said Wednesday that Collins has a partially torn labrum and will need surgery.

, Collins was hurt in Sunday's overtime win against the Chicago Bears. He left the game late in the first half after assisting on a tackle against halfback Tarik Cohen. He returned at least twice in the second half and has 96 tackles."Landon displays what he is, he's a very tough guy, very good tackler, he's made a lot of plays for us, especially close to the line of scrimmage," coach Pat Shurmur said of Collins' season. "I've said it numerous times, in a sport where toughness is required, he's got a lot of it, so that's what I appreciate about him."Collins has led the Giants in tackles in each of his first three seasons. His contract expires after this season. The second-round draft pick in 2015 has started 60 of the team's 61 regular-season and postseason games. He missed the 2017 season finale after fracturing a forearm."It (stinks) not having my guy next to me, but it's a next-man-up league Riley Ridley Jersey Color Rush
, so that's what we got to do," fellow starting safety Curtis Riley said. "It's going to feel a little funny, but that's my guy, so I got to do it. We got to do it."Veteran Michael Thomas and rookie Sean Chandler probably will share Collins' workload on Sunday."Obviously we're going to miss him, but it's an opportunity for young guys to step up, our new guys to step up," said Thomas, who had five tackles Sunday."You don't just replace a guy like LC, two-time Pro Bowl player, All-Pro safety. You don't just replace that Mens Riley Ridley Jersey
, so that's my brother, we're going to ride for him."Chandler, who had one tackle against the Bears, said he would be ready.Chandler was an undrafted free agent out of Temple. He played in the NFLPA bowl game in January and was coached by Thomas, who signed with the Giants as a free agent in the offseason."He has always tried to give me the inside scoop and way I can do things better," Chandler said of Thomas. "He has always told me to work hard and he still does that." Bears’ fans, this is an open thread!"By now you’ve all read that scintillating piece of journalism from Tyler Dunne in the Bleacher Report about the dysfunction between Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and their former head coach Mike McCarthy. If not, go read it right now. I’m serious. I’ll wait.Good?Okay...Here’s the Cliff-Notes version in case you didn’t take my advice to read that article. Rodgers is a sensitive baby and a bit of an asshole, and McCarthy is a doofus that gets massages during team meetings. Who knows where the truth lies when a tell-all piece like this comes out Cheap Riley Ridley Jersey
, because not every person in a locker room will like everyone. SB Nation’s Stephen White, a former NFL player, wrote about this very thing in 2014. What you, as the reader, chooses to believe is up to you, but speaking from a Chicago Bears’ fan perspective, I tend to believe most of, if not all of it. And yes, I’m sure the enjoyment I took from the read is guiding my judgement. Meanwhile Packer fans and Packer media-fanboys, who already have their guard up after watching their team stumble through consecutive losing seasons for the first time in 27 years Riley Ridley Chicago Bears Jerseys
, have been in full spin mode since the story broke. The rift between Rodgers and McCarthy started before Rodgers was even drafted by the Packers and when McCarthy was still the offensive coordinator of the 49ers. McCarthy thought Alex Smith was the best QB of the 2005 draft class and his ‘Niners took Smith number one overall, while Rodgers slipped all the way to the Pack with the 24th pick.That’s a Hell of a grudge.A grudge that was cancerous in the locker room and a cancer that Rodgers had no intention of ever healing. McCarthy was fired last year and is currently not coaching, while Rodgers, at 35-years old, will try to get the Packers back on track under new head coach Matt LaFleur who is just four years older than his disgruntled quarterback. And don’t think that just because McCarthy is out, that Rodgers will all of the sudden be a locker room saint. Rodgers wasn’t consulted before LeFleur was hired, in fact, it was mandated that he needed to simply accept the hire. In the article Rodgers is described as “self-entitled,” a “bad leader,” “arrogant Chicago Bears Jerseys Stitched
,” “not as smart as he thinks he is,” “passive-aggressive to the extreme,” and “real sensitive.”He has iced out younger teammates if they don’t do what he says or if they make mistakes. He selfishly was more concerned about his own stats and audibled out of running plays all the time. He undermined his former head coach and he’s never held accountable. Will a 39-year old, first-time head coach have the stroke to hold a future Hall of Famer accountable?We’ll have to wait and see.This is an open thread, but still make sure you follow our community guidelines.
