A frustrating 2022 season just got even worse for the Indianapolis Colts.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Colts All-Pro linebacker Shaquille Leonard, who was placed on injured reserve this week, may miss the remainder of the season.

Leonard is scheduled to meet with new surgeon Dr. Robert Watkins in Los Angeles on Monday to find out the severity of the injury and determine whether or not he will be able to play again this year.

Leonard will already be out a minimum of four games because of the move to Injured Reserve and with the Colts having only eight games remaining, the sentiment is that the team will shut him down for the season.


Leonard has played in just three games this season. He made his debut in Week 4 but suffered a broken nose and concussion in that game after a collision that bent his face mask. Leonard returned to action in Week 8 but now will be sidelined again after playing in the Colts’ past two games.
