Former S.C. State University standout and current Indianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard has added another milestone to his historic rookie season following Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans.
Recording six tackles during the first half of the game, Leonard broke the franchise record for tackles in a single season (160), a standard which was previously held by linebacker Jeff Herod set in 1991.
Before even playing Sunday night, Leonard was the NFL’s leader in both combined tackles and solo tackles. He’s also added seven sacks, four forced fumbles and one interception during his rookie season.
Despite the immense production leading the NFL for the majority of the season, Leonard was snubbed as a Pro Bowl invite. He was listed as an alternate, which means there’s a good chance he makes it by the time the game comes around.
