Ravens’ Alex Collins ‘a little bit of a surprise’ for Colts

The Baltimore Ravens will be without linebacker Alex Collins for the rest of the season after he fractured his right leg.

The team announced Collins’ injury Sunday, saying he was injured Sunday morning and will miss six weeks.

Collins has played in seven games this season after missing all of 2015 with a fractured right foot.

Collins was a third-round pick by the Baltimore Ravens in 2014.

Collins was signed as a free agent after a strong training camp, but his playing time dwindled last season.

Collins started the season on injured reserve with a concussion and was inactive for the first eight games of the regular season.

The Ravens traded up in the first round to select Collins with the 28th overall pick.

The former Alabama star will not be eligible for the 2017 season.
