Darius Leonard (concussion) ruled out Week 5

Darius Leonard (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

Leonard like a decent bet to return from a two-game absence after practicing in limited fashion Wednesday and Thursday, but he ultimately wasn't on track to gain clearance from all five phases of the NFL's concussion protocol prior to Sunday. Expect Anthony Walker to fill Leonard's usual spot on the weak side for another game, opening up the middle linebacker spot for rookie Bobby Okereke.

Darius Leonard (concussion) ruled out Week 4

Darius Leonard (concussion) did not practice Friday and won't suit up Sunday versus the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Leonard will miss a second straight game as he remains in the concussion protocol. He hasn't practiced since suffering a head injury Week 2, and a timetable for his return remains undisclosed. Leonard will need to fully clear the league's concussion protocol before retaking the field, including receiving medical clearance from an independent neurologist.

Darius Leonard (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Falcons

Fantasy Impact

Leonard has a team-high 181 tackles (121 solo), eight sacks and nine pass breakups over 17 games. His value can't be replaced on defense, but expect E.J. Speed and Zaire Franklin to rotate in to fill the void.

Darius Leonard returns to form

Darius Leonard posted ten total tackles, six solo tackles, and one sack against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Impact

If you took Leonard with a high draft pick, you were likely much more satisfied with his performance today. Look for him to continue his momentum next week against the Atlanta Falcons.

Darius Leonard with a modest afternoon

Darius Leonard finished the game against the San Diego Chargers with seven total tackles, three solo tackles, and one pass defended.

Fantasy Impact

This was a relatively disappointing afternoon for the DROY and All-Pro LB, who has never had less than four solo tackles before yesterday's game. The #1 ranked IDP looks to bounce back next week against the Titans next Sunday.
