Replacing Landon Collins in the Lineup Won't Be Easy

The Giants defensive secondary will be left to pick up the pieces now that Collins is on IR.

Giants defender Landon Collins is more than just a safety.

He's a warrior, a defensive co-captain and a key member of the Giants defense. Unfortunately, he's also headed for season-ending surgery to repair a partially torn labrum in his left shoulder suffered last week in the Giants' 30-27 overtime win against the Bears.

Collins' fellow defensive back Michael Thomas, who will likely be called upon to fill in for his fallen teammate, says replacing Collins won't be as easy.
