NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Los Angeles Chargers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts announced yesterday that linebacker Darius Leonard and safety Clayton Geathers have cleared the concussion protocol.

The Colts are currently sitting 3-2 coming off a week 6 bye. The team is feeling refreshed and ready for a week 7 division clash with the Houston Texans. They returned to the practice field Monday and amongst them were linebacker Darius Leonard and safety Clayton Geathers, who now have both cleared the league's concussion protocol.

Darius Leonard is coming back from a concussion he sustained in week 2 against the Titans which has kept him out of last three games. Leonard is a welcomed return and will provide a big presence back in the middle of the defense. He made it known he had cleared the concussion protocol last week on social media.

But it wasn’t made official by the team until today.

Geathers missed the week 5 clash with the Chiefs with a concussion sustained against the Raiders the previous week. In his absence, rookie Khari Willis and second year safety George Odum stepped up big time, both making plays against the Chiefs.
