  • Cardinals' Zaven Collins: Accrues seven tackles in Week 11

    Collins totaled seven tackles during Monday's 38-10 loss to the 49ers.

    Collins followed up a season-low tackle tally (three) from Week 10 with a more typical stat line one game later. He's one of two Cardinals with at least 70 tackles (71, to be precise) alongside safety Budda Baker (85), helping Colllins rank in a tie for 35th in the NFL with the Seahawks' Cody Barton. Collins will aim to keep it up Sunday versus the Chargers before Arizona's Week 13 bye.

  • 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: Listed as questionable for Sunday

    Collins (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

    Collins was limited at practices throughout the week due to a shoulder injury he picked up during the team's Week 3 loss to the Rams. While the second-year linebacker had to be removed from the contest, he avoided a major injury and has a chance to suit up against Carolina, but Collins may still miss at least one game to avoid a potential setback. If he's ruled out for Week 4, Nick Vigil would be a likely candidate to start in Collins' absence.
