Darius Leonard concussion: Colts linebacker says he's 'cleared to play'

Expect to see Darius Leonard return to the Indianapolis Colts defense. 

"Big Mood after getting cleared to play again!!" the linebacker posted Tuesday on Instagram, accompanied by a lively video. 

Leonard has missed three games while in concussion protocol. He practiced last week but did not get clearance to play against the Kansas City Chiefs. The second-year All-Pro had 18 tackles, including one sack, in the Colts' first two games.

His next chance to play is Oct. 20 against the Houston Texans.
