As the Colts prepare for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers in Los Angeles, LB Darius Leonard takes time out of his busy schedule to chat with DD. Leonard, a second-round draft pick in 2018 had a breakout rookie season for the Colts. He gives a peak behind the curtain of his gameday preparations, how he reacted to the Andrew Luck news, and so much more!

On his preparation for gameday: 

"I don't go into game mode until stepping on the field for warmups. Game mode is killer instincts. If you're wearing the opposite jersey, that's who you're ready to attack. It's like you're in an army. You have to protect yourself and your teammates."

On hearing the news of Andrew Luck's retirement:

"At first, I was totally shocked. But then after I thought about it afer the game, I sat down and thought about all the things he's been through. i stood up with him and i respect everything that he has done and respect his decision."

On the potential of new starter Jacoby Brissett:

"I love him. I'm looking forward to it. He's a very good quarterback who is very smart and is a competitor. Those are all the things you need as a quarterback and he h as great guys around him -- a great offensive line and great skill guys. Everybody is behind him and we w ill go out there as a team."
