Collins has played 97 offensive snaps this season, filling in for Leary when he has missed time with injury. Collins also made a start and played all 54 offensive snaps in the Cowboys’ Week 3 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. In limited snaps so far this season, Collins has graded out strong according to Pro Football Focus.
La'El Collins has yet to allow a pressure on 57 pass blocking snaps. Now starts at LG for Dallas.
