INDIANAPOLIS — Colts Coach Frank Reich officially ruled linebacker Darius Leonard (groin) and left tackle Anthony Castonzo (ribs) out for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.
Leonard, who is a leader on this top-ranked Colts defense, injured his groin in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears.
Fellow linebacker Anthony Walker is also dealing with an ankle injury. Walker is the guy they lean on heavily when Leonard is out. He was limited at practice on Friday and is questionable to play. A determination on Walker’s status will come later this weekend.
Castonzo is dealing with a rib injury, but Reich would not elaborate on the severity of it. Without Castonzo on the field Sunday, the Colts streak of 20 consecutive regular season games with the same offensive line comes to an end.
That was the longest active streak in the NFL.
