La’el Collins

Cowboys left guard La’el Collins will undergo surgery on his right big toe and will go on injured reserve. He will need 8-10 weeks to rehab, Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

The Cowboys had held out hope that Collins might play through the injury, and he sought two more opinions. But the foot specialists, including Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, couldn’t guarantee the torn ligament would heal on its own.

“That’s disappointing,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on his weekly radio show on 105.3 The Fan. “We had hoped that he might try and play through that and let that kind of heal on its own. After several other opinions that confirmed really what our doctors thought early on that he would be better for him long term to get the surgery, then we got confirmation. He did. La’el did from two or three other doctors and he’s going to have that surgery.”
