The New York Giants have won three out of their last four. They also just took down the NFC North-leading Chicago Bears. That’s great! But they’re also just 4-8 on the season. That’s not where the bad news ends, however. The Giants were dealt another blow this week. Sources tell ESPN’s Josina Anderson that he’s going on IR after suffering a shoulder injury Sunday.
I’m told #Giants S Landon Collins (shoulder) is going to IR. He will need surgery. The procedure will likely be next week, per source.

Additionally, that injury will require surgery. Collins, 24, partially tore his labrum against the Bears. Therefore, he will need season-ending surgery, according to SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano.

The Giants would limit Collins during the team’s win on Sunday. But he did still manage to finish the game. This season, Collins put up 96 total tackles, one forced fumble and five tackles for a loss in 12 games. With him out, the team will turn to Michael Thomas and Sean Chandler to fill in.
Up next, the Giants travel to the nation’s capital to take on the struggling Redskins. Washington has lost three in a row and are now 6-6, losing their grip on the division in the process. If only they could’ve strung together these wins a little earlier, right? Then their playoff hopes could still be alive.
