According to Fisher, the reason Collins left practice early is because he was dealing with neck/shoulder soreness. Thankfully, this injury isn’t considered major and he should be “OK” moving forward.
“Source tells me La’el Collins is ‘OK’ after leaving Cowboys practice with neck/shoulder soreness,” Fisher tweeted. “Nothing major.”
This is great news for the Cowboys, especially since Collins missed all of the 2020 season because of a hip injury that required surgery.

Since joining the Cowboys in 2015, Collins has made 61 starts. Most of his appearances in the NFL have come at right tackle, but it’s worth noting that he could play multiple positions on the offensive line.
Last season, the Cowboys saw just how lifeless their offense can be without their top linemen on the field. If they want to be a playoff team this upcoming season, they’ll need to make sure they’re as close to 100 percent as possible in the trenches.
With the regular season just a few weeks away, Dallas would be wise to keep Collins out of the final two preseason games. It’s not like he has to learn a new system or get used to a different quarterback.
