    Seahawks’ L.J. Collier: Notches first career sack

    L.J. Collier recorded three tackles and a sack in Sunday’s 27-26 win over the Vikings.Collier has endured a shaky start to his career, as he was a first-round pick in 2019 but served as a healthy scratch on multiple occasions during his rookie year. He’s carved out a more consistent role in 2020, and he’s finally registered his first sack. However, Collier played just 46 percent of the snaps while rookie Alton Robinson logged a 40 percent share, and his playing time could slip further when Rasheem Green (neck) returns from IR.

    Seahawks’ L.J. Collier: Earns starting job

    Head coach Pete Carroll said L.J. Collier will start at defensive end Sunday versus the Falcons, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.Collier beat out Rasheem Green for the starting gig opposite Benson Mayowa, although Carroll said both defensive ends should get plenty of tread. After being selected in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, Collier played just 155 defensive snaps over 11 games (five healthy scratches) and recorded three tackles. Carroll believes he’s in better shape this year and should have an impact immediately, but the 25-year-old has minimal IDP value at this time.

    Seahawks’ L.J. Collier: Disappointing rookie season

    L.J. Collier made three tackles over 11 games in the 2019 season.Many said Collier was a reach when the Seattle Seahawks took him 29th overall in last year’s draft, and the 24-year-old didn’t do much to change those opinions. He played 10 or more defensive snaps in just six games, and he was a healthy scratch for both playoff games. Of course, it’s not easy to battle for playing time against Jadeveon Clowney (core) and Ezekiel Ansah (neck), but that duo missed eight games between them and Collier didn’t adjust to the pro ranks quickly enough to take advantage. Ansah will likely move on and Clowney’s status for 2020 is to be determined, but even if both leave Seattle, Collier will have to compete with Rasheem Green, Branden Jackson and Quinton Jefferson (foot) for reps next year. The Seahawks will likely address their pass rush in free agency and the draft, too.

Collier (coach’s decision) will be active for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.Collier has been inactive for the first three games of his NFL career as a healthy scratch. However, coach Pete Carroll now appears comfortable enough to give him the green light. The rookie will provide depth at defensive end and presumably help contribute on special teams.

    Seahawks’ L.J. Collier: May be healthy scratch

    Coach Pete Carroll said L.J. Collier (ankle) has been cleared to play but may be inactive for Sunday’s game versus the Steelers, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.Carroll tends to hold his cards close to the chest when it comes to injuries and who’s going to play, and he continues to do it on the defensive line where DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is questionable and DT Poona Ford (calf) is doubtful. He also stated that he wanted to see what rotations would be necessary Sunday. Reading between the lines, the Seattle Seahawks only have two healthy defensive tackles — Al Woods and Bryan Mone — if Ford can’t play, so they’ll likely need a defensive end to bump inside. If that happens, Collier’s depth will be necessary at defensive end. It’s nearly impossible to tell what Carroll has planned, but it seems unlikely he keeps the team’s first-round pick out of the defense altogether.

    L.J. Collier (ankle) resumed running on flat ground Friday and is nearing a return to practice, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.Collier is working his way back from a significant ankle sprain. The 2019 first-round pick appears to be making good progress in his recovery, though it remains to be seen whether he’ll be ready to go for the start of the regular season. With Nazir Jones (knee) also managing an injury, Barkevious Mingo, Cassius Marsh, Branden Jackson and Rasheem Green stand to see increased work as long as Collier remains sidelined.
