Leonard (back) was placed on the active/PUP list Sunday. The Colts have not established a timeline for when he may return, but head coach Frank Reich said in June that he's expected to be ready for the start of the regular season, Stephen Holder of ESPN.com reports.

Leonard's placement on the preseason PUP list doesn't give much info on his status, as he already was expected to miss much of training camp. However, there doesn't appear to be any increased optimism about his recovery timetable. While Reich was optimistic in June, there wasn't a lot of detail given about Leonard's injury, which makes his status murky for the regular season. Leonard underwent back surgery in June that is believed to help address lower-leg issues. He already had been rehabbing an ankle issue after undergoing a procedure earlier in the offseason, missing OTAs and the Colts' mandatory minicamp.
