Darius Leonard News
Indianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard (ankle) is unlikely to be involved in on-field activities until training camp after having a minor procedure on his ankle recently that will keep him out roughly six weeks. The 2018 Defensive Rookie of the Year and first-team All-Pro is expected to be ready for training camp. Leonard suffered his injury early last year, but he still played in 15 games and led the entire league in total tackles (163) and solo tackles (111). He also had seven sacks, eight QB hits, 12 tackles for loss, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, two interceptions and eight passes defensed. Leonard was an elite IDP asset in his rookie season.
Indianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard weighed 234 pounds when he was drafted last April. The All-Pro was down to around 217 pounds in the final few games of the season but is now at 221 pounds and is hoping to keep his weight below the 225 mark as he enters his sophomore season. "Im not a typical linebacker," Leonard, who also became a new father this offseason, says of why he wants to weigh far less than most linebackers. "Im more of a speed guy, very athletic so if Im going to play in space, Im going to need to move." The Defensive Player of the Year had a league-best 163 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, seven sacks, eight passes defensed, four forced fumbles and two interceptions. He has a chance to be a special player and will surely be one of the first few linebackers selected in IDP leagues.
Indianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard was named the Associated Press 2018 Defensive Rookie of the Year on Saturday. Leonard had a whopping 163 total tackles, seven sacks, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and two interceptions in 15 games in his rookie season. He was one of the biggest reasons why Indy's defense was a sleeper unit that helped them sneak into the playoffs as a wild card and even win a game in the postseason. He flies all over the field and was excellent stopping the run as the team's second round pick. Leonard will surely be one of the first few linebackers to come off the board in IDP leagues going into his second season.
Indianapolis Colts rookie linebacker Darius Leonard (ankle) returned to practice along with safeties Malik Hooker (back) and Clayton Geathers (concussion, neck) on Thursday. It's good news for an ailing team all around as they get ready to face the Jets in Week 6. Leonard has burst onto the scene as a star in his first season and already has four sacks through five weeks (he sat out in Week 5). Start Leonard in IDP leagues if he returns this weekend.
Indianapolis Colts rookie linebacker Darius Leonard (ankle) was close to playing last Thursday against the Patriots and expects to return in Week 6 against the Jets. In four games, Leonard has quickly put himself on the map as an IDP must-start with a whopping 54 tackles, four sacks and one forced fumble. If he's active against Gang Green, he should be in all IDP lineups in Week 6.
