The rookie second-round pick briefly exited Indianapolis' win over the Dolphins in Week 12, one in which he recorded 10 tackles and a sack while picking up shoulder and knee injuries.

Leonard recorded 10 tackles (nine solo) and one sack across 48 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. Even though he briefly left the contest after twisting his leg, Leonard managed to return to the field and lead the Colts in tackles.

The rookie is leading the Colts' defensive line in reps and is emerging as a Defensive Rookie of the Year candidate.
Leonard has returned to Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports. Well, that didn't last long. Leonard twisted his leg and hobbled to the locker room, but was checked out, tested his knee and is already back in action in the first quarter. His return is huge for the Colts' defense.
Leonard recorded seven tackles (five solo), including a sack, an interception and a forced fumble in Sunday's win over the Titans. Leonard has been dominant in his first NFL season, and Sunday may have been his best outing yet. His interception was a career first, and he's now up to four forced fumbles and 104 tackles, including five sacks, through nine games. Leonard has proven to be a top IDP linebacker this season. He and the Colts will take on the Dolphins in Week 12.
