LeBlanc didn't see any live action until he signed with Detroit in October, and he didn't have a significant defensive role until he was released by the Lions and scooped up by the Eagles in November. Thanks to the all the injuries that inflicted the team's secondary, LeBlanc was ultimately needed to man a heavy snap count down the stretch and into Philadelphia's postseason run. While Ronald Darby (knee) will be a free agent this offseason, a healthy Jalen Mills (foot) and Sidney Jones (hamstring) could shrink LeBlanc's role ahead of the 2019 campaign.
LeBlanc (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game versus the Texans, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
LeBlanc has benefited from an increased workload in the Eagles battered secondary, logging over 70 defensive snaps in back-to-back games and making 12 tackles in that span. The Eagles will need to use LeBlanc in the same capacity again against Deshaun Watson and the Texans.
LeBlanc (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
LeBlanc has drawn two consecutive starts in the Eagles' injury-depleted secondary and would likely see a substantial workload if he's able to play in Week 16.
LeBlanc was waived by the Lions two days ago, and Philadelphia wasted no time in claiming the depth cornerback off waivers. The 24-year-old will serve as a depth cornerback in the Eagles' secondary, and is expected to take most of his snaps on special teams.
LeBlanc was waived by the Lions on Saturday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.
LeBlanc was promoted from the Lions' practice squad in early October and logged three tackles over his three games with the team. Wide receiver Andy Jones was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list to prompt the move.
