The Cleveland Browns officially placed LB Jamie Collins on injured reserve Monday, ending his 2017 season.
Browns HC Hue Jackson announced Monday that LB Jamie Collins is out for the season with a torn MCL.
You can expect the Browns to place him on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.
Collins, 28, is a former second-round pick of the Patriots back in 2013. The Patriots surprisingly traded him to the Browns for a conditional 2018 fourth-round pick that can become a 2017 third-round compensatory pick.
The Browns signed him to a four-year, $50 million contract that contained $26 million guaranteed and a $5 million signing bonus back in late January. He stands to make base salaries of $10.65 million (2018), $10 million (2019) and $12 million (2020).
In 2017, Collins appeared in six games for the Browns and recorded 31 tackles, one sack, an interception, a forced fumble and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 82 linebacker rusher out of 86 qualifying players.
