LeBlanc (foot) signed a one-year extension with the Eagles and was placed on injured reserve Monday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
LeBlanc will remain in Philly through at least the 2020 season after signing with the club last year. In eight regular-season games with the Eagles in 2018, LeBlanc had 32 tackles and five pass breakups in 351 snaps. LeBlanc has been dealing with a foot injury since training camp and will now miss at least the first eight weeks of the season as he continues to recover.
LeBlanc could be out until November with a Lisfranc sprain, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.
LeBlanc sustained the injury on the first day of training camp. It was originally hoped the 25-year-old could return for the start of the regular season, but now he'll be sidelined until at least mid-to-late-September. The Eagles signed Orlando Scandrick on July 28 to help the secondary while LeBlanc nurses this injury.
LeBlanc will miss the next several weeks with a foot sprain but should be ready for the start of the regular season, as the injury won't require surgery, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
LeBlanc sustained the injury in Friday's practice and was spotted in a walking boot Sunday. In response to the situation, the Eagles signed Orlando Scandrick on Sunday after a workout.
LeBlanc suffered an undisclosed injury at Friday's practice, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
It is unclear how severe LeBlanc's injury is or if he will be sidelined for any period of time. The recently turned 26-year-old was a nice surprise down the stretch last season, specifically due to his defense of the slot receiver position. Expect an update on his status once more clarity is gained on this situation.
LeBlanc generated 27 tackles and one pass breakup over 11 total games for the Eagles and Lions in 2018.
LeBlanc didn't see any live action until he signed with Detroit in October, and he didn't have a significant defensive role until he was released by the Lions and scooped up by the Eagles in November. Thanks to the all the injuries in Philadelphia's secondary, LeBlanc ultimately was needed to man a heavy snap count down the stretch and into the postseason. While Ronald Darby (knee) will be a free agent this offseason, a healthy Jalen Mills (foot) and Sidney Jones (hamstring) could shrink LeBlanc's role ahead of the 2019 campaign.
LeBlanc (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game versus the Texans, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
LeBlanc has benefited from an increased workload in the Eagles battered secondary, logging over 70 defensive snaps in back-to-back games and making 12 tackles in that span. The Eagles will need to use LeBlanc in the same capacity again against Deshaun Watson and the Texans.
LeBlanc (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
LeBlanc has drawn two consecutive starts in the Eagles' injury-depleted secondary and would likely see a substantial workload if he's able to play in Week 16.
LeBlanc signed a contract with the Eagles on Monday.
LeBlanc was waived by the Lions two days ago, and Philadelphia wasted no time in claiming the depth cornerback off waivers. The 24-year-old will serve as a depth cornerback in the Eagles' secondary, and is expected to take most of his snaps on special teams.
LeBlanc was waived by the Lions on Saturday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.
LeBlanc was promoted from the Lions' practice squad in early October and logged three tackles over his three games with the team. Wide receiver Andy Jones was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list to prompt the move.
LeBlanc was promoted to the Lions' active roster Saturday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.
LeBlanc logged 28 games over the last two seasons with the Bears, making 61 tackles, 13 pass breakups and two interceptions. He'll provide solid depth in the secondary in case a cornerback needs to shift to safety, where the Lions have three questionable designations ahead of Sunday's game versus the Packers.
LeBlanc finished the 2017 season with 17 tackles (14 solo), a sack and a forced fumble for the Bears.
LeBlanc had a much more productive rookie campaign in 2016, but only played only 306 total snaps (212 defensive) this season. Starter Kyle Fuller is slated to become a free agent and the Bears cornerback situation is wide open as LeBlanc enters the final year of his rookie contract, but the step down in his second season doesn't do much for his chances of role worthy of IDP relevance in 2018.
LeBlanc (illness) is active for Week 13's matchup against the 49ers.
LeBlanc fell ill and was withheld from Friday's practice, but will be good to go for the home tilt against San Francisco. With four defensive backs landing on the inactive list, LeBlanc should see his share of snaps on defense, even with starting cornerbacks Prince Amukamara and Kyle Fuller healthy.
LeBlanc (illness) didn't practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
LeBlanc has filled in for Bryce Callahan since the latter suffered a knee injury versus the Saints in Week 8, logging 14 tackles (11 solo) and three pass breakups in the subsequent four games. If he and Callahan can't play Sunday, Marcus Cooper and Sherrick McManis will slot into the their places.
LeBlanc intercepted a pass and recorded two tackles in Sunday's loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with two picks, one of which he returned for a touchdown, and 44 tackles,.
LeBlanc ended his rookie campaign by picking off a pair of passes over his last three contests, and although those were his only picks of the year, the strong finish provides optimism that he could be a big part of the Bears defense as he enters the second year of a three-year contract in 2017. Although he'll likely go undrafted in many IDP leagues, he could emerge as a sneaky option if he has a strong training camp.
LeBlanc (knee) is active for Sunday's matchup with Minnesota, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
LeBlanc was expected to play despite being limited at practice during the week. He'll start opposite Tracy Porter in Chicago's season finale.
LeBlanc (knee) is questionable for Sunday's tilt agains the Vikings.
LeBlanc was limited in practice throughout the week and appears to be nearing a return. If he's limited or held out on Sunday, look for Bryce Callahan to see some extra time once again.
LeBlanc (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Redskins.
LeBlanc may be replaced at punt returner by Deonte Thompson, who also returns kicks. Expect Tracy Porter and Bryce Callahan to continue starting at cornerback.
LeBlanc (concussion) was removed from the Bears' injury report Friday.
LeBlanc went down last Sunday against the Giants with a concussion but has since passed through the league's protocol for head injuries. He's set to play Sunday against the Titans.
LeBlanc (concussion) is out for remainder of Sunday's game against the Giants.
LeBlanc will spend the second half of the game on the sidelines due to a concussion. Look for Sherrick McManis to see increased action as a result.
LeBlanc is being evaluated for a concussion and is questionable to return.
The cornerback will have to pass concussion protocol testing before he can return to the field. Sherrick McManis will now be the only reserve cornerback on the active roster.
