The Indianapolis Colts will go without their defensive play-caller.

Linebacker Darius Leonard suffered a groin injury, according to Stephen Holder of the Athletic. Leonard was seen limping to the locker room in the first half of the Bears game.

He was downgraded to being out for the rest of the game.

The 25-year-old middle linebacker has had a slow start to the 2020 season with no sacks and averaging five to six tackles a game.

Leonard is coming off a successful 2019 campaign with a career-high five interceptions (one for a touchdown), five sacks, and seven tackles for a loss.

Zaire Franklin finished the game in a victory over the Bears, 19-11.
