We have seen the last of the Leonard leap in 2008. The St. Louis Rams place Brian Leonard on IR after injuring his shoulder. Leonard had surgery on both shoulders after the 2007 season, and now he will require surgery again. Leonard suffered a partial dislocation of the sholder on Sunday while playing out on the special teams. Brian Leonard was considered a bit of a reach when the Rams selected him in the 2nd round of the 2007 NFL draft while already having Steven Jackson on the roster. Leonard had 303 yards rushing and 183 receiving in 2007. In 2008 Leonard was placed behind Antonio Pittman and had only 2 carries for 7 yards on the season. Leonard is most known for his “Leonard Leap” when he hurdles tacklers. So after two years the selection of Leonard looks like another missed pick by the Rams. We wish Leonard good luck in his recovery.
