The Washington Football Team fears safety Landon Collins sustained a season-ending Achilles injury in Sunday's 25-3 victory over the Dallas Cowboys, NFL Network reported. Collins is scheduled for a MRI on Monday, per the report.

The 26-year-old three-time Pro Bowl selection was carted off with an injury to his right lower leg in the second quarter at FedEx Field in Landover, Md.

The injury occurred with 10:48 left in the second quarter as Collins pursued scrambling Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton.

Collins' strip-sack of Dalton halfway through the opening quarter led to a safety and a 2-0 lead for Washington. He also had four tackles before leaving the game.

Including Sunday, Collins has played in 81 career games, all starts, with the New York Giants (2015-18) and Washington. The former first-team All-Pro (2016) has registered 595 tackles, seven sacks, nine interceptions, three fumble recoveries and a touchdown in his career.
