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 OLB Darius Leonard (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. He put in a full practice Friday, though, and seems on track to play. We'll check his status Sunday morning. Leonard missed last week's game against the Patriots after testing his injured ankle in pregame.

Just after making him officially active for Thursday night's game against the Patriots, the Colts announced that LB Darius Leonard will not dress for the game. He sprained his left ankle in Sunday's OT loss to the Texans. Leonard missed just 1 of 86 snaps in that game but apparently isn't ready to go. Anthony Walker is the only Indy LB that you can count on in IDP lineups for Week 5.
