  • Cardinals' Zaven Collins: Working with edge rushers

    Collins has been lining up as an edge rusher during minicamp practices, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Collins primarily played inside linebacker during his first two NFL season. Head coach Jonathan Gannon said a decision hasn't been made whether the 23-year-old will continue to line up on the edge come the start of the regular season, but where on defense Collins plays will be worth tracking throughout the spring and summer.

  • Cardinals' Zaven Collins: Sitting out Week 18

    Collins (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Collins will be sidelined for Sunday's regular-season finale after failing to practice during Week 18 prep with a calf injury, marking his first absence of the season. The 2021 first-round pick stepped up into a bigger role during his second season with Arizona, as he's logged the team's third-most tackles heading into Week 18. In his absence, Ben Niemann and Kamu Grugier-Hill should be in line for increased snaps versus San Francisco.

  • Cardinals' Zaven Collins: Scores first career touchdown

    Collins recorded seven tackles, including a tackle for loss, and a pick-six during Sunday's 31-21 defeat to the Seahawks. Collins has been consistent on the tackle front in his second pro campaign, hovering between four and nine per week en route to 61 through nine games. Aside from a two-sack Week 6, though, he didn't make much of an impact in box scores elsewhere until his acrobatic interception of Seattle quarterback Geno Smith on Sunday that he returned 30 yards to the house. The Cardinals expect to be without leading tackler Budda Baker for a few weeks due to a high-ankle sprain, so Collins may have elevated tackle totals as long as the former is sidelined.

  • Cardinals' Zaven Collins: Totals five tackles Sunday

    Collins accrued five tackles and one pass defense during Sunday's 34-26 loss in Minnesota. Through eight games, Collins has reached five tackles on seven occasions, helping him rank second on the Cardinals in tackles (54) behind Budda Baker (60). Aside from a two-sack Week 6 in Seattle, though, Collins doesn't have much else on his overall ledger this season. With another matchup against the Seahawks on tap Sunday, he'll look to get after Seattle quarterback Geno Smith yet again.

  • Cardinals' Zaven Collins: Ready for Thursday Night Football

    Collins (shoulder) doesn't have a designation for Thursday's contest versus the Saints, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. After being listed as limited on Monday's practice estimate, Collins had a cap on his reps at Tuesday's session and handled every rep at Wednesday's walkthrough. With his availability confirmed ahead of Thursday, he'll again serve as one of Arizona's top producers of tackles along with safeties Budda Baker and Jalen Thompson (hamstring, questionable), assuming the latter is active.

  • Cardinals' Zaven Collins: Still dealing with shoulder injury

    Collins (shoulder) was listed as limited on Monday's estimated practice report, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. During Sunday's 19-9 loss in Seattle, Collins went off for nine tackles, including two sacks, and he now ranks second on the Cards in terms of tackles (41) behind safety Budda Baker (45) through six games. Collins has been dealing with a shoulder issue since a Week 3 matchup against the Rams, but he's proceeded to earn 100 percent of the defensive snaps in each of the team's last three contests. He'll look to ditch his injury designation ahead of Thursday's outing against the Saints.

  • Cardinals' Zaven Collins: Injures shoulder Thursday

Collins suffered the injury on a 12-yard run by Green Bay running back AJ Dillon and required assistance to get off the field.

  • Cardinals' Zaven Collins: Facing charges after arrest

    Collins was arrested and charged Sunday for excessive speed and reckless driving, according to the Scottsdale (Ariz.) Police Department. Collins was spotted going 76 mph in a 35-mph zone, precipitating a traffic stop. He later was released and now awaits trial on a charge that is deemed to be a Class 2 misdemeanor and could result in jail time. However the case breaks, the Cardinals and the NFL will wait for the legal process to play out before levying any sort of punishment. In the meantime, Collins will continue to prepare for his rookie campaign after the Cardinals selected him 16th overall in the 2021 NFL Draft to serve as the team's starting Mike linebacker.

  • Cardinals' Zaven Collins: Inside track to starting job

    Collins is expected to work as the Cardinals' starting MIKE linebacker, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Accordingly, the team has given veteran middle linebacker Jordan Hicks permission to seek a trade, following back-to-back seasons with 16 starts and triple-digit tackles. Collins and Isaiah Simmons, the Cardinals' first-round picks from the past two springs, are expected to be the starting inside linebackers come Week 1. Collins has the build of an edge rusher at 6-foot-5, 259 pounds, but he's apparently more comfortable playing as an off-ball linebacker. In three seasons at Tulsa, the No. 16 overall pick recorded 236 tackles, 7.5 sacks and five interceptions.

  • Cardinals' Zaven Collins: Tulsa LB heads to Arizona

    The Cardinals selected Collins in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, 16th overall. Collins is a small-school defender but a big-time athlete. A hulking linebacker figure at 6-foot-5, 259, Collins logged a 4.66-second 40 to go with a 35-inch vertical and 122-inch broad jump. With safety-like athleticism on a defensive end-like frame, Collins offers the schematic versatility ideal for amoeba fronts, and he should combine with Jordan Hicks and Isaiah Simmons to form one of the league's most dangerous linebacker rotations.
