Cowboys' Maliek Collins set to undergo left foot surgery again

The Dallas Cowboys have sustained their first significant setback this offseason.

FRISCO, Texas - Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Maliek Collins suffered a fractured fifth metatarsal in his left foot Thursday, and sources told ESPN he is set to have surgery.

Collins should be available to return sometime during training camp, but could start his time in Oxnard on the PUP list as he continues his rehab.

He's started 30 of a possible 32 games over two seasons with the Cowboys, recording a combined 45 tackles and 7.5 sacks.

The 23-year-old should be ready to join the Cowboys by the middle of training camp and is expected to be ready for the team's regular-season opener September 9 against the Panthers. He also underwent surgery on his left foot in January to address a stress reaction that lingered throughout last season. He broke his right foot during organized team activities (OTAs) as a rookie, which caused him to miss part of training camp.

He still played in every game that season, starting 14. He moved from under tackle to nose tackle last season after David Irving returned to the lineup from suspension.

The Cowboys have been focused on adding interior depth this offseason.

Collins, a third-round pick in 2016, has been a starter on the defensive line for the last two years. They traded for Jihad Ward during the draft, and could bring back Terrell McClain as well.
