    Leon was carted off the field in the first quarter of today's game. He was unable to place any weight on the ankle and appeared to be in significant pain. We will have to wait for more info to see the extent of this injury.

    That was my #1 OC back. The "wide variety" in which he scored points made him a good play. Thats in the toilet now..... I hope this leg doesnt turn into career ending..

    Rotoworld said it was a compound fracture (meaning the bone broke the skin). He will be in my prayers.

    I hope this turns out well for Leon looking towards the future. He was always one of my favorite productive #2 RBs. I just hated to prune him in one league yesterday.

    Not worth a penny since this wasn't career ending! That sucks!

    You dont know that yet RC. He may not make it back. I hope it was the standard exposed break, but look what happened to that WR Alabama had a while back.

    They just announced before the game that it wouldn't pay because it wasn't career ending. just announcing what they said. It sucks for him thats for sure, either way.

    If he gets a doctor from around here it could end his career.
