Dallas Cowboys rookie defensive tackle Maliek Collins sustained a broken right foot during OTAs, the team announced Wednesday.

Collins, who has already undergone surgery for the injury, will now miss the remainder of off-season practices, as well as the team’s three-day minicamp in June. The timetable for his recovery is 10 to 12 weeks.

Collins was a third-round selection in the 2016 draft by the Cowboys out of Nebraska. In his absence, Dallas will still have Tyrone Crawford, Cedric Thornton and Terrell McClain to look to primarily on its interior defensive line, as well as Jack Crawford and David Irving behind them.
