Leonard Gets Good News on His Foot Injury

Running back Brian Leonard got some good news on his foot injury:

He was on the field on crutches Wednesday evening, but Brian Leonard felt a sense of relief as he watched practice. Leonard got word before practice that there are no ligaments torn in his left along with no fractures. It is still classified as a mid-foot sprain.

“I’ll be back this season. It will be a little bit of time,” Leonard said. “I’ll be back pretty much when I feel good and ready to go. They don’t have a time frame set. Its how you feel and that’s what I’m going to base it off of. I don’t want to put a time frame on it because I really don’t know. It’s how my body reacts to it and when I get into rehab. If I feel good and in shape and I don’t have any pain cutting off it then I’ll be back out as soon as I can.”

After Sunday’s 16-7 loss to Dallas in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Leonard thought that it could have been a Lisfranc injury which would have most likely been a season-ending and career-threatening injury. In a span of 72 hours it ended up being the best possible scenario – from career threatening to being back possibly by late September.
