Rotowire: Dec 7 / 2:39p ET
News: Leonhard recorded seven tackles (four solo), one sack and one interception in Sunday's loss to the Colts.
Impact: Leonhard has stepped up big in the absence of Tashaun Gipson (knee), recording an interception in both games that he's filled in for the regular free safety. Gipson's status for the remainder of the season remains uncertain, so Leonhard should continue to see consistent playing time for the foreseeable future.
