Indianapolis Colts star linebacker Darius Leonard could not be with his team Sunday when they took on the Atlanta Falcons because of a concussion, but it didn’t stop him from suiting up.

Kayla Leonard, Darius’ wife, shared a video of her husband in full Colts gear with pads and a helmet ready to play at the drop of a hat.

Illegal immigrant involved in crash that killed Indianapolis Colts’ Edwin Jackson gets additional prison time

A Guatemalan national who was convicted of causing a crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver was slapped with an additional 42-month jail sentence Tuesday for reentering the U.S. after he had been previously deported.

Chief U.S. District Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson ordered Manuel Orrego-Zavala to serve his sentence consecutive to his sentence of 16 years in state prison at the request of prosecutor William McCoskey, who said it would “send a strong message to the defendant and others similarly situated that we are a nation of laws and that there are real consequences that come from violating those laws.”

REP. MATT GAETZ: TRUMP CRACKDOWN ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION SUCCESSDING – AMERICA BENEFITS

Orrego-Zavala, 38, was in the U.S. illegally for the third time in February 2018 when he struck 26-year-old Jackson and his 54-year-old Uber driver, Jeffrey Monroe, who had pulled over and were standing on the shoulder of I-70 in Indianapolis. Orrego-Zavala was driving a pickup truck and had a blood-alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit. The two victims were stopped on the highway because Jackson said he wasn’t feeling well and needed Monroe to pull over.

Orrego-Zavala pled guilty to causing death while operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol in July 2018 and was given the maximum sentence of 16 years in prison. He had previously been convicted of two drug felonies in California and was deported in 2007. Authorities found him illegally in the U.S. again in May 2009 and deported him for a second time, according to court records.

“Mr. Orrego-Zavala re-entered the country illegally for the second time before he put the public safety of Indianapolis at risk and took the lives of two innocent men on February 4, 2018,” U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler said in a press release. “This prosecution represents our office’s commitment to charging aliens that illegally re-enter the country, especially if they are a risk to public safety or there is a criminal history present.”

Fire erupts on field before game between Colts and Titans in Tennessee

A game between the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans got off to a scorching start as a large fire erupted at Nissan Stadium in Nashville just before both teams were set to play.

A piece of pyrotechnics equipment designed to shoot flames during introductions ignited near the sidelines where Titans players usually enter the field, making for a crazy scene on Sunday afternoon just prior to the singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

ANTONIO BROWN REJECTED $2M SETTLEMENT WITH WOMAN WHO ACCUSED HIM OF RAPE: REPORT SAYS

One of the flame-throwing boxes tipped over toward the stands, setting the turf on fire as the Titans celebrated the jersey retirements of former players Steve McNair and Eddie George, ESPN reported.

It could be seen blowing hot flames toward the spectators in a manner that resembled a massive flamethrower. Smoke blew out from the flames into the air toward spectators sitting nearby who were forced to move back a few rows to safety.

The malfunction took place just 10 minutes before the scheduled noon kickoff.

Stadium employees quickly extinguished the fire. The start of the game was unaffected by the eruption and no one was injured.

Andrew Luck takes out full-page ad thanking Colts fans after retirement

Retired Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck took out a full-page ad in the Indianapolis Star on Sunday morning thanking “Colts Nation” fans for their support over the past eight years.

It comes as a classy move after some Colts fans were seen booing Luck as he walked off the field following a preseason game at Lucas Oil Stadium against the Chicago Bears on Aug. 24 — having just heard the shocking ESPN report regarding his NFL exit.

Luck held a tearful press conference soon after detailing his love for the city and why he made the decision. He also discussed his reaction to hearing the boos.

“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t hear it,” Luck said regarding the boos. “Yeah, it hurt. I’ll be honest, it hurt.”

While most Colts fans were blindsided by the 29-year-old’s sudden retirement from the game due to constant injuries he said had “taken the joy out of this game,” those who booed him are probably the small minority of actual fans who appreciate what he’s done for their team and city.

ANDREW LUCK’S DECISION TO RETIRE EARLY RESONATES WITH NBA STAR WHO SUFFERED MAJOR ANKLE INJURY

In the letter, Luck thanks fans for helping him and his wife Nicole make Indiana their home, for helping him grow, as well as showing them the true meaning of Indiana hospitality.

“It has been the honor of a lifetime to represent the Colts and the city of Indianapolis on the world’s stage. I can’t wait to see our team take the field and continue the journey,” he said.

“I’m proud to be a Midwesterner, a Hoosier, and a Colt,” he added.

NFL’s Matt Overton offers to buy tickets from Colts fans upset over Luck retirement

NFL player Matt Overton on Monday offered to buy the tickets of disgruntled Indianapolis Colts fans demanding refunds after the abrupt retirement of quarterback star Andrew Luck.

Overton, who played five seasons with the Colts, said on Twitter that he would be “more than happy” to buy season tickets from “angry fans” and donate them to charity.

“To any angry Colts season ticket holders who are seeking a refund, I’d be more than happy to buy your season tix off of you & donate them to @RileyChildrens patients & their families,” the Jacksonville Jaguars long snapper tweeted. “I’m serious.”

“Riley Hospital is near and dear to me,” Overton told local Indianapolis station WTHR. “It’s near and dear to the entire community of Indianapolis and if we can help these kids and families go to a game and cheer on their favorite team, the Colts, let’s make it happen.”

ANDREW LUCK POTENTIALLY WALKING AWAY FROM $500M WITH RETIREMENT

While it’s not clear how many people actually took up Overton’s offer, a Colts spokesman said the team received only a handful of calls seeking refunds, ESPN reports. The team franchise said sales for single-game and season tickets were selling as normal since Luck’s announcement.

Overton still lives in Indianapolis during the offseason and his fiancée is also from the city. The NFL star said he had not spoken to Luck since announcing his retirement but came to his former teammate’s defense against some of the harsh criticism online.

“You can obviously tell he’s going through a real big struggle and has been for quite some time now,” Overton told  WTHR. “People are questioning his character and his toughness and all that kind of stuff, and I just think it’s B.S.“

“The dude is incredibly strong. He’s obviously going through some very difficult decisions right now and made a very difficult decision to retire,” he added.

“It’s hard on the fan base. It’s hard on the team. It’s hard on the organization. And it’s hard for guys like me who played with him and friends to see him going through that. Just hopeful that he finds that peace and joy and his health going forward.”

Tom Brady puts rivalry with NFL legend to rest

The rivalry has officially been put to rest.

Tom Brady took a selfie with former NFL quarterback and longtime adversary Peyton Manning and posted it to his Instagram on Wednesday. The two had been competitors in the AFC for several years before Manning retired from the sport following the 2015 season.

ZION WILLIAMSON RECEIVES INSPIRING MESSAGE FROM NEW ORLEANS LEGEND: ‘PASSING THE TORCH TO YOU’

“Spoiler alert… we were friends this whole time. Always great to see you Peyton!” Brady wrote in the caption.

Brady and Manning had several memorable moments meeting up in the playoffs, including four times in the AFC Championship. The two last met during the 2015-16 NFL playoffs. That season, Manning’s Denver Broncos got the best of Brady’s New England Patriots.

Overall, Brady had eight wins in 12 games over Manning when the Patriots were playing the Indianapolis Colts. Brady had three wins over Manning’s Broncos in five contests.

The two are arguably the best quarterbacks to play in the NFL and both are almost certain to become Hall of Famers in the future.

Calf injury continues to keep Luck out of Colts’ workouts

The Indianapolis Colts will gladly play it safe with Andrew Luck.

They’d rather he be healthy for training camp anyway.

Just minutes after coach Frank Reich announced Tuesday that his starting quarterback would sit out this week’s three-day minicamp — the final portion of Indy’s offseason workouts — Luck promised he would return to practice when the Colts report to camp in late July.

“It’s OK, it’s not good enough to practice this week, which I’m bummed about,” Luck said, describing the injury. “But I think we’re on a very, very good page and I’ll be ready for training camp.”

The injury, suffered during training, has forced Luck to miss the Colts’ entire on-the-field program for the second offseason in three years.

But this was different.

After missing the entire 2017 season to recover from surgery on his throwing shoulder, he started throwing again last June during the team’s mandatory minicamp. His appearance raised even more questions when it appeared he was throwing footballs smaller than the NFL’s regulation size.

Team officials continued to be cautious with Luck at training camp when they closely monitored the number of throws he made and gave him extra days off. The prolonged recovery time prompted some skeptics to question whether Luck could ever return to his Pro Bowl form.

It didn’t take long for Luck to prove the doubters wrong. He produced arguably the best season of his pro career and was rewarded with the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year award.

This year, many outsiders expect bigger and better things from Luck and his teammates, and Luck sounds confident he can deliver despite the nagging injury.

“I’ve thrown significantly, sort of off my foot to make sure I don’t aggravate something, but to keep my arm in shape,” he said. “It’s a football, a pigskin Wilson Duke, with Roger Goodell’s signature on it.”

Reich has continually insisted that Luck’s absence was a cautionary move.

He has no serious concerns about Luck’s health, and with seven seasons in the league, two full offseasons to get acclimated to the system and most of last season’s key offensive contributors returning, Reich figures Luck’s absence should not hinder his play.

“He has missed the on-field work but he has gotten so much in the meetings,” Reich said. “Second year in the system, talking through things, he’s been able to have even more input into the system this year, putting his imprint on the system now knowing what we’re doing, what he likes, what he doesn’t, and why he likes what he likes in our system.”

Indy can’t wait to see how things play out in training camp. But the last month certainly has presented some challenges, and not just because of Luck.

Rookie center Javon Patterson, a seventh-round draft pick, and defensive end Jegs Jegede, an undrafted rookie from Valdosta State, landed on season-ending injured reserve.

Fourth-string quarterback Chad Kelly will miss the first two regular-season games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. Backup offensive tackle Antonio Garcia received a four-game suspension Monday for violating the league policy on performance-enhancing substances.

General manager Chris Ballard explained last week why he drafted linebacker Bobby Okereke in the third round, knowing Okereke had been accused of sexual assault in 2015.

And after re-signing 11 of the team’s 20 free agents and adding receiver Devin Funchess, running back Spencer Ware and pass rusher Justin Houston, Ballard signed punter Rigoberto Sanchez to a contract extension last week, and long snapper Luke Rhodes to an extension Tuesday.

All that’s missing now is Luck.

“Within the calf strain injury, I’d say it’s on the longer side. I don’t think it’s out of the range of a calf strain but it’s definitely on the longer side,” Reich said. “We’re not concerned.”

How do you clap back when you get booed?

Go straight up savage.

Reggie Wayne, former Colts wide receiver and Titans nemesis, felt the wrath in Nashville while on stage to announce Indianapolis’ second-round pick at the 2019 NFL Draft.

NFL DRAFT RUINING BACHELORETTE PARTIES IN NASHVILLE

Before calling out the name of Temple cornerback Rock Ya-Sin at No. 34 overall, Wayne took a moment to address the jeering crowd.

“C’mon Tennessee,” Wayne said. “Y’all have played the Colts 20 times in 10 years and you’ve won three games. Stop it.”

Shots fired.

The smackdown lit up Twitter, with the Colts’ official account tweeting a gif of Ice Cube and Chris Tucker from the movie “Friday.”

“Your new owner of the Tennessee Titans: Reggie Wayne,” said one tweet.

For the record, Wayne played against the Titans 24 times in his 14-year career with the Colts, coming out on the winning side 18 times. In those games, he caught 112 passes for a combined 1,573 yards and ten touchdowns.

The pick of Ya-Sin marks the first time since 2005 the Colts have taken a cornerback in the top 35 picks.

The last time Indy selected a cornerback this high was in 2005 when it took Marlin Jackson out of Michigan at No. 29. Jackson remains a memorable player because it was his late interception that sealed the 2006 AFC Championship game win over New England. Two weeks later, the Colts won the Super Bowl.

“I only played football in high school for two years and felt like I was under-recruited,” Ya-Sin said. “I just believed in myself. I felt like I had the talent, I had the work ethic and I had great coaches (at Temple) around me.”

Ya-Sin is a 6-foot, 192-pound Georgia native who played his first three seasons at Presbyterian College in South Carolina before landing at Temple as a graduate transfer. There, Ya-Sin caught the attention of NFL scouts by recording 47 tackles and finishing 14th in the FBS with 12 passes defended.

And the two-time Georgia state wrestling champion managed to take some of the skills he learned on the mat to the football field.

“It’s a team sport but it’s a lot of one-on-one matchups and you have to beat one guy so you’re not afraid to stand up against a guy man to man or to stay on top of a guy in the zone,” Ya-Sin said. “The hand-fighting, a takedown is a tackle you know.”
