Darius Leonard Injury Updates

The Colts have ruled LB Darius Leonard (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. It'll be his 3rd straight game missed. LB Anthony Walker (shoulder) is also questionable for the game. Walker didn't miss any practice this week and wasn't even listed on the injury report until Friday -- when he put in a full workout. We'd have to bet on him playing, but the status obviously means we'll need to check the Sunday night inactives.

Colts MLB Darius Leonard will miss his 2nd straight game Sunday against the Raiders with a concussion. Leonard has yet to return to practice since suffering the injury. Leonard's absence boosts the tackle upside of LB Anthony Walker, who becomes a full-time player. DE Jabaal Sheard is questionable, however, for the 1st time this year. Sheard had knee surgery in early August and has been out since. Indy listed him as a limited participant in practice leading up the Week 3, but Sheard remained inactive. He continued to be limited this week but now officially has a chance to play. We wouldn't use Sheard in IDP lineups until we see about his snap count and readiness.

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.

Colts OLB Darius Leonard (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Jets. He missed last Thursday’s loss to the Patriots with the injury but practiced all this week and should be back in IDP lineups

The Colts will start undrafted rookie Skai Moore at MLB, next to 2nd-round rookie OLB Darius Leonard, in Sunday's opener against the Bengals, according to Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star. Both rookies started throughout the preseason, while expected MLB starter Anthony Walker watched from the sideline with a hamstring injury. We'll see if Moore can hang on to the job once Walker returns, but we'd bet on the 2 sharing that spot. Leonard is the best bet for fantasy value among Colts LBs for the season, but both rookies look like solid IDP lineup options for Week 1.
