When it comes to the current status of New York Giants star safety Landon Collins' health, he has hit a recent setback that could keep him out until training camp.

According to Art Stapleton of NorthJersey.com, Collins confirmed that he will undergo a second surgery on the right forearm he fractured in late December.

“I hate surgery,” Collins told The Record and NorthJersey.com via text message. “And then I'm thinking I'm fine and excited about this season, being on the field for OTAs [organized team activity]. It's a bone. It's going to come back stronger, so it shouldn't affect nothing I'm trying to do [moving forward].”

That is definitely not the news that Giants fans needed at the moment, but at least Collins will get the surgery out of the way now rather than later in the summer right before the 2018 season starts. Earlier this week, he reiterated that he is not concerned at all with his contract with the Giants going forward.

“I'm just letting it just work itself out. I'm not really going through the negotiating part,” Collins said of his contract status. “I'm going to leave that between [general manager] Dave Gettleman and my agent and then go from there. From that point on, I'm just here trying to make new friends with my boys, new relationships and be a captain like I've always been.”

A two-time Pro Bowl selection at safety in just three NFL seasons, Collins has only missed one game due to injury and has made 341 tackles, 28 pass deflections, eight interceptions, and scored one touchdown.
