The Colts have ruled MLB Darius Leonard out for Sunday's game against the Falcons because of his concussion. Rookie Bobby Okereke expects to see increased playing time in Leonard's absence. LB Anthony Walker will likely lead the group in snaps.
Colts HC Frank Reich told reporters Monday that LB Darius Leonard developed concussion symptoms after Sunday's game against the Titans. Leonard is now in the league protocol and will need to pass through before he can play the Falcons on Sunday.
Colts LB Darius Leonard had surgery at some point this offseason on the left ankle he injured in 2018, GM Chris Ballard announced Tuesday. Leonard played through the issue for much of the year. He's expected to be out 6 weeks, a timeline that would still put him on track for the start of training camp. We'll keep an eye on him through the summer. Leonard, of course, started his career by dominating LB scoring and looks like the top IDP in 2019 drafts if the ankle's good.
Colts LB Darius Leonard is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars with shoulder and knee injuries. He put in a full practice Friday, though, after progressing from a missed practice Wednesday to a limited Thursday workout. We'd bet on Leonard playing at Jacksonville, but we'll check his status Sunday morning.
