Returning to action

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-31

Leonard (heel) is active Sunday against the Broncos.

Leonard will return after a three-game absence, which should be a boost to the Chargers' secondary. He'll likely get the nod as the team's predominant corner opposite Assante Samuel against Denver.

Could return Week 17

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-29

Leonard (heel) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Leonard had missed the Chargers last three games with this heel issue, but after a week of limited practice sessions, he's got a shot at suiting up Sunday. If the second-year corner were to miss his fourth game in a row in Week 17, both Ja'Sir Taylor and Essang Bassey would likely see increased opportunities in Los Angeles' secondary.

Limited at practice

Leonard (heel) was considered a limited participant at the Chargers' practice Wednesday.

Leonard missed Saturday's 24-22 loss to the Bills due to what was considered an ankle injury, which now appears to be classified as a heel issue to open Week 17. The cornerback will look to increase his workload at practice before the end of the week in order to return to the field Sunday versus the Broncos.

Unable to play Saturday

Leonard (ankle) will not play Saturday against the Bills.

Leonard was listed as doubtful heading into the contest, so this isn't surprising. Ja'Sir Taylor and Michael Davis will fill in as the outside corners in replace of Leonard with Asante Samuel likely shifting intermittently between the outside and the slt.

Doubtful for Saturday vs. Bills

Leonard (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game versus the Bills.

It looks like Leonard will probably miss his third straight game in Week 16 due to an ankle injury. In that case, Michael Davis projects to make another start at cornerback versus Buffalo.

Unavailable for Week 15

Leonard (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's matchup with the Raiders.

Leonard will miss a second game in a row while nursing an ankle injury. In his absence, Michael Davis will likely draw another start at cornerback when the team takes on Las Vegas.

Officially out vs. Denver

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-08

Leonard (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Leonard did not practice this week after playing every single snap in last Sunday's win over the Patriots. He missed three games earlier in the season with a hamstring issue. Head coach Brandon Staley noted Friday that Michael Davis will start Sunday for Leonard, per Daniel Popper of The Athletic.

Logs career high in tackles

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-28

Leonard recorded seven tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 20-10 loss versus the Ravens.

That Leonard posted a career high in tackles is not totally surprising given he also played a career-high 69 defensive snaps in Week 12. The Chargers have been flailing on defense this season, especially when it comes to trying to stop the pass, so betting on any Chargers corner not named Asante Samuel to provide consistent, solid reps seems less than wise at this point.

Set to return for Week 8

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-29

Leonard (hamstring) is active for Sunday night's game against the Bears.

Leonard was a limited participant in all three practices this week and will return for the first time in three games. He played exclusively on special teams in the first three games of the season and will likely resume that role against the Bears on Sunday night.
