Amid the Giants' lost season, Landon Collins has been a rare bright spot. He's started every game despite nagging injuries, but his near three-year start streak will come to an end as he broke his forearm in the Giants' 23-0 loss to the Cardinals on Christmas Eve.
The injury occurred as Collins made a tackle just before halftime. He thought he'd be able to shake off the soreness and return to the game before learning the extent of the injury.
"I don't even remember the last time I cried," Collins said, via Michael Eisen of Giants.com. "As soon as I saw the picture on the X-ray, man, I just broke down. I couldn't hold it in, I broke down."
Collins' season ends with 104 combined tackles, 2 interceptions and another Pro-Bowl selection, his second.
"It was definitely tough," Collins said when asked to summarize his season. "Just trying to play through injuries and trying to be on the field with my guys as much as possible and just try to make a difference in some kind of way. I tried my best and I can hold my head up high for that. I tried my best."
