As expected, the Indianapolis Colts won't have Darius Leonard to start training camp.
On Sunday, the team placed the star linebacker on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. The Colts also added defensive end Tyquan Lewis, safety Rodney McLeod and wide receiver Michael Strachan to the PUP list.
Coming off his third All-Pro season, Leonard underwent back surgery in early June. Head coach Frank Reich said at the time that his star defender would likely miss some training camp, but he thinks Leonard "should be ready to go for the regular season."
The anchor of Indianapolis' defense, Leonard tallied 122 tackles, four interceptions, and an NFL-best eight forced fumbles last season. While he won't suit up in July, everyone is far more concerned about getting him ready for September.
