Colts linebacker Shaquille Leonard is going to miss at least the next four weeks.

Leonard, who has been dealing with ankle and back injuries, is heading to injured reserve, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

It’s possible Leonard will miss more than four weeks, but that’s the minimum stint on injured reserve.

Leonard has had a disappointing season, playing in only three games. It’s been one of the many challenges facing a reeling Colts squad now led by interim head coach Jeff Saturday.

  1. Shaq Leonard already a 3X selected 1st team All-Pro and was playing like the second coming of LB Mike Curtis. Hopefully this doesn’t derail a once promising career. Once you get that first back surgery,unfortunately many more will follow for the rest of Shaq’s life.

  2. I see Leonard retiring sooner than later. Injuries plus some mental health concerns make me think he could have an Andrew Luck style early retirement. Not sure his heart is in it anymore.
