WR Nico Collins out multiple weeks with shoulder injury

Nico Collins injury

Texans rookie wide receiver Nico Collins will miss multiple weeks with an injury he suffered against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2. The injury is described as a shoulder injury and it will apparently keep Collins off the field for 3-4 weeks.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news via Twitter on Monday afternoon.

Collins was selected by the Houston Texans in the third round, with the 89th overall pick. He was a star at the University of Michigan, cementing a WR2 position despite playing with Donovan Peoples-Jones and Tarik Black.

In just his second NFL game, Collins went down after one reception on one target for 32 yards. He was targeted three times in his first contest, catching one pass for seven yards. Collins will now miss more NFL weeks than he has been able to play. He earned starting time on a Texans team that is already not replete with talent, so losing both Collins and quarterback Tyrod Taylor may derail their decent start to the 2021-2022 season.
