  • Colts' Darius Leonard: Facing six-week recovery
    By RotoWire Staff

    Leonard will require six weeks of recovery time after undergoing surgery for a left ankle injury that plagued him in 2018, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports. Leonard certainly didn't show the effects of a bum ankle during his rookie campaign, racking up 163 tackles (111 solo), seven sacks, four forced fumbles and two interceptions to turn in one of the better rookie seasons by a defensive player in recent history. He reportedly shed some weight this offseason and expects to play below 225 pounds for all of the 2019 campaign, which should take some more pressure off of the fixed ankle. The Colts expect Leonard will be ready for the start of training camp.

  • Colts' Darius Leonard: Down to 221 pounds
    By RotoWire Staff

    Leonard currently weighs 221 pounds and plans to stay below 225 throughout the 2019 campaign, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports. Leonard weighed 234 at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, but he said he was down below 220 by the end of his spectacular rookie season, making him one of the lightest linebackers in the NFL. He led the league with 163 tackles (111 solo) despite missing one game, adding eight passes defensed, seven sacks, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and two interceptions. Leonard expects to be in better physical condition for his second pro campaign, as a leg injury prevented him from taking part in the Colts' offseason program last year. He'll have a solid case to be the first IDP selected in 2019 drafts.

The 2018 second-round pick had an amazing season any way you slice it.
