Collins missed the Giants’ three-day minicamp last week and will not be healthy enough to participate in upcoming OTAs. For a player who embraces his role as a vocal team leader, missing the formative time with new teammates and learning a playbook has been a difficult blow.
It was definitely tough, Collins said. But at the same time at least it’s not about to happen before the season and I don’t have to miss anything before the season. It gives me the time to continue resting my body, let my arm heal completely and come back strong.
Collins has been named to two Pro Bowls in his first three seasons. The 2017 regular-season finale the only game after he broke his forearm in Week 16 was the first game and start he has missed during his career.
A race expected to match the top two 3-year-old fillies in No. 2 Monomoy Girl and points leader Midnight Bisou, the morning-line favorites, soon became Monomoy Girl’s to lose. The chestnut filly charged from the outside No. 14 post into contention and the lead and held ground in a thrilling side-by-side stretch battle with Wonder Gadot before Monomoy Girl kept the small edge to the wire.
Wonder Gadot’s team filed a foul claim against Monomoy Girl for a bump down the stretch, but racing stewards dismissed the claim, giving Monomoy Girl its sixth win in seventh starts and trainer Brad Cox a signature hometown win in the 144th running of the Kentucky Oaks.
Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said signing Ryan to an extension was the team’s top offseason priority. Owner Arthur Blank told ESPN that Ryan would be compensated well after being named NFL MVP and helping the Falcons to the Super Bowl during the 2016 season.
Matt is getting what he has earned and we all know the marketplace for a great quarterback, Blank said Thursday. League revenues are up, club revenues, new stadiums and the players are the heart of the game. They’re the ones on the field and they certainly deserve their fair share.
